Everyone should have this as a signature
I think I am getting burnt out, because every day I wake up and someone else is laying off, someone else is shutting down, and another friend is wondering how they are going to feed their family. There are lots of people calling it quits with the aviation career these days. I'm starting to think they are the smart ones.
It doesn't matter how much you love flying if it makes everything else miserable.
An old timer once told me "Son, don't fly for the airlines, it will ruin your love of aviation"
"Never do as a profession, what others do as a hobby" (ask any photographer about this)
