Some people just have weird ideas on how things should be done in their ideal world.
Cheers

I dunno how gender makes a pilot. Its not as if its a strength thing....


Pulling advanced turns and pulling out of spins requires some strength not to mention the aerobat guys.....

It's not often RPT flights need to perform such actions! :)

Gender is irrelevent.

With all the prejudice that they encounter, women pilots tend to be among the best in what is basically a man's world. PC doesn't come into it. The RAF trusts my neice to drive one of their helicopters around the sky, and I would fly with her at any time. (I don't even like helicopters!)

Sorry, slight inaccuracy in my last, had my mind on something else. Family member pointed out that neice flies Lynx for British Army, not the RAF. Not sure where she has been recently and don't ask. All I know is that the Lynx can be "anti-social" if anyone has the audacity to shoot at it!!

Female Captain

Postby TERRY MAGEE » Tue Sep 19, 2006 2:10 pm

Female pilots are hardly new. I flew with Joan Hughes as my instructor at White Waltham and Booker in 1964/65. Joan was no ordinary pilot having learned to fly at the age of 17 and been a Trans Atlantic ferry pilot during WWII. Only a small lady but a very accomplished pilot.

I'm not sure if she sent me on my first solo. Alas I came to Oz in 1967 and never completed my flying training.

There is nothing wrong with female pilots, they can be just as good and better than male pilots. However i think the airline's uniforms are biased towards male pilots and needs to have an alternate version for female pilots.

When i flew SYD-BNE (VOQ) and then BNE-PPP (VOQ), the first sector was flown by a male pilot and the landing in BNE was an absolute shocker! The next flight flown by a female was a ripper in Proserpine :D But i do agree that its down to the individual.
