One would be too many and we all know that things are tough but what percentage of pilots flying RJs are eligible for Food Stamps?

Many of us from the military have no real appreciation for the years of toil it takes to get your experience on the civil side and all you hear is how everyone started in a rj with 250 hours.

This 9/11, recession, age 65 stagnation, and transition of mainline flying to regional jobs has done more to put a sobering spin on the 121 pilot profession than any other generation.

Now we just wait for the UAV's to take over!

Funny you should mention UAVs! When I first read this article I posted it on the Majors section because the author seems to be suggesting from the perspective of a retired pilot that the Southwest model is the one to use post-Deregulation if we want this piloting career to survive into the future.

The moderators moved it to the General Aviation section. However, I think it has more to do with Regional pilots working on food stamps and quitting to work at McDonald's.

Being a Regional pilot is a choice. Grow a garden and avoid food stamps.
