As a former regional aviator (and current 'probably-about-to-be-furloughed' fractional puke); thought I would lighten the mood. Here are some I came up with;


-If you try to pay for the Telex 850 at the FBO (cause your co. is too cheap to provide headsets) with your foodstamps... you might be a regional pilot.

-If on a 45min turn; you go out of security in the pax terminal, walk for 15min to the FBO for the free popcorn, and justify it with "we buy fuel too"... you might be a regional pilot.

-If you compulsively can't stop yourself from repeatedly waving your hand in front of the motion-activated paper towel machine because it's 'free'....you may just be a regional pilot.

-If you take all of the lightbulbs and toilet paper (towels go without saying) from your hotel room for home use...you might be a regional pilot.

-If you haven't purchased bar soap or shampoo in 5yrs..you might be a regional pilot.

-If you have a running calculation of exactly how much $$ the above 2 measures save annually...you might be a regional pilot.

-If you live in your parent's garage and believe you're very generous by offering to spring for a space-heater...you might be a regional pilot.

-If your company puts out a memo claiming that the biscoff cookies and peanuts that Delta is now stocking is 'proper nutrition' and will stop paying an extra $1 a head for 'breakfast' at the fleabag RON hotel...you may be a regional pilot.

-If you jumpseat strictly for the free soda...you might be a regional pilot.

-If you consider your job at McDonald's as 'primary' income...you might be (also) a regional pilot.

-If you were fired from aforementioned McDonalds for repeatedly stealing food...at least you still have a gig as a regional pilot.

-If you try to talk the line mechanic into letting you 'have' the broken radar altimeter so you can try your luck on Ebay...you might be a regional pilot. (true--saw a guy do that)

-If you have been banned from your local Hampton Inn for posing as a guest for the free breakfast...you might be a regional pilot.

-If you try to sneak back into that same Hampton Inn breakfast nook utilizing fake moustache & glasses...you are apparently still a regional pilot.

-----Okay...let's hear yours!!!! .....

--If you have to shave twice in one duty period...you might be a regional pilot.

This is sad, but true

If a Walmart stock clerk or cashier makes more money than you, you're regional airline pilot.
