Is It As Exciting As You Think?
Am I the only who thinks of the pilots behind the controls of iconic war birds? I mean, how does it feel like to be maneuvering the aircraft? I’ve always been curious what goes on in ordinary and not-so-ordinary days. And now, we get the chance to take a peek into the daily life of an F/A-18 Hornet pilot. It’s true what he says, that most people think they simply get into their planes and fly as if that’s the only thing they do. Okay, I admit I’m one of those with the same misconception. It’s just hard to picture them behind the desk instead of being in the cockpit.
But no, it’s way more than that. There’s actually a lot of work that doesn’t entail soaring through the skies. If you think they don’t do paperwork, then think again. They even train other pilots. They pretty much do a lot of things before gearing up for flights. But at the end of the day, no matter how much work they do, their passion for aviation still tops it all.
