It is nice to see more ladies "spreading their wings" and doing what, for the longest time, was considered to be a "Man's job".. There are many capable ladies out there, and it's nice to see things more diverse

Well, my personal opinion is: I think ladies should be at home. At least I sure wouldn't want my wife out there in the world woking, she needs to be at home with the children, while I am the one paying the bills.

JMC has a female captain. I had the pleasure of flying MAN to TFS (20/8/02). Very nice flight.
Quite a few passengers looked surprised when she walked past in her uniform. I watched her board the plane and was impressed when she took the left seat.

i was wondering what woman pilots would do at the destination since they cant play around with the male FA's which are known for their lack of interest in women. however, they will probably allways have a male colleague at their side or no interest in intersex relations.

We had a female captain on Air Jamaica this summer. She flew the whole way from Montego Bay to Kingston with the hand brake on.
Very bumpy landing in KIN.
Ok, maybe not true for the handbrake bit but the landing was rather rough.

i had one female pilot dfw-den aa 767-300 (equip. change) and to be honest with you, that had to one been one of the worst pilots i have had. she was banking very steep, the landing was rough, the braking on the taxi was rougher.. i have flown that route before so i knew what to expect.

Funny thing, I was reading a book I got from the library about a month ago and it was written in either the early 80's or late 70's and it was talking about how if your a female "don't consider a job as a pilot, airlines are male chauvinists.' ETC..
The other day I was out at CLT and there were a lot of female pilots there. I have flown with a few but not too many..

Personally, I think it's absolutely wonderful that more females are meeting the
challenge and rewards of being a pilot. It's about time. Here in Canada, Air Canada has a growing number of female flight deck crews. Skyservice Airlines has, I am told, approximately 12-14 female Captains and F/O's, and the numbers are growing.
I can recall flying YYZ-YVR on a cold wintry day on an Air Canada A340. We were taxiing out for takeoff, and both the female Captain and female F/O made announcements about de-icing and delays. This gentleman, around 65 years old, sitting across the row and one row ahead of me, was absolutely shocked to hear female voices coming from the flight deck. He jaw literally dropped as he looked around to see if anyone else was as surprised. I turned to him and simply said, "They're not females, they simply have a very very low testosterone level". His wife laughed at this, and he too managed a chuckle.
