Very few of us know what it’s like to control a giant metal tube flying through the sky at incredible heights and lengths. That is probably for the best, seeing how most people behave on planes. I’m no exception to this rule! After having heard it too many times, I can barely stay awake to listen to the pre-flight safety announcement. At least I’m not someone who takes my shoes off on the plane.
Starting your career as a pilot isn’t always glamorous. You might begin flying corpses across the country, flying a private jet for a bunch of demanding businessmen or even begin in the military. If you’re lucky, you might eventually get in with one of the cushy commercial airlines, living the dream of flying for American or Delta. Even when you’re at the top, being a pilot is no easy job. If you’re one of the hundreds of pilots being overworked this Thanksgiving, these pilot memes might give you a laugh.
