AA And Uniform Caps

Sat Oct 04, 2003 7:46 am

I gotta be honest, it's 2003 and I think that the hats look rediculous. Tradition is tradition and all, but it makes airline pilots look like a cross between police officers and boat captains. Further, I still think that the rest of the uniform should remain.

Wow, I thought this would spark up some debate. Something new, huh?

I can see both sides of the argument, but I think the hats should remain. They add to the overall image of pilots. In an airport, from a distance, they would not stand out at all. If you didn't see the stripes immediately, you would think they were men and women in dark suits. The hats add to the professionalism of the group. Gives them an air of confidence and authority.

What do some of the pilots in the forum think?

I think the hat should stay. It is very much a symbol of authority and lets everyone know that is a pilot. Maybe the rules should be relaxed to make the hat optional. Does Jet Blue wear hats? I saw one of their pilots in the Airport a few weeks ago deadheading somewhere and he was in this nasty looking blue almost denim looking button down shirt with wings embroidered on and it said jet blue.. If that is their uniform I gotta say its pretty lame. The reason I wondered if that was their uniform was he had his laptop and overnight bag (kind of weird seeing pilots without the big rectangular bag).
