Today I’m flying home (commercially) for the holidays. I’m a GA pilot and I enjoy flying. I like trying to think in my mind what the crew up front might be doing, learning a little bit about how the big jets operate, and the airline I typically fly offers the ability to listen to the cockpit crew over the audio system. (Yes, even they miss a few calls occasionally.)
I also know a few GA pilots who hate flying commercially. Something about not being in control of something they (relatively speaking) know how to control. For some people the dislike of flying commercially started after they received their pilot certificate.
What about you? Do you enjoy flying commercially? (Of course we all dislike long lines in the airport… I’m talking about the actual flying part.) How has flying commercially changed for you before and after earning your pilot certificate? Comment below!
