I am needing some ideas here.
I am currently working on a website which deals with Russian aviation, and as part of that site, I will be getting some pilots from Russia to give analogies and information on what it is like to be an airline pilot in Russia/CIS today, and in the past.
The people I will be getting this information from have piloted a diverse range of aircraft including: An-2, An-12, An-26, An-30, An-32, Il-18, Il-62, Il-86, Mi-2, Mi-8, Tu-134, Tu-154, Tu-204, Yak-40, Yak-42 and others, and also Boeing and Airbus aircraft.
So what I need to know (from an enthusiasts perspective, as the site will be for them), is if you were to meet a Russian airline pilot, and you wanted to know what their experiences are and what it is like to fly the aircraft that they fly, then what questions would you ask them?
Any ideas are totally welcome, and expected
If you have questions which relate to specific aircraft, or anything at all, then give me those ideas.
You can either leave them here, or you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your help people.
