‘Fraid to Fly?

Current mood: aggravated

> since i am a pilot i have a question ………….who is afraid to fly …..and why ?
> if you do not fly …….what method do you use trains .bus ……or your personal auto?

I’m not afraid to fly. I rather like it, in fact. It’s quick and fun.

HOWEVER . . .

I am averse to what’s available these days for “commercial aviation” :

From the Wiktionary entry on “averse”:

1.1 Adjective –
1. Turned away or backward.
2. Having a repugnance or opposition of mind; disliking; disinclined; unwilling; reluctant.

No.2 is the operative definition here. I find the common practices of commercial airline companies repugnant and so I am disinclined to use their services. Those practices include:

Overbooking

Breaking up parties – I’ve always ended up with total strangers who couldn’t SHUT THE FUCK UP to save their own lives.

The shitty selection of music available on the earphones they provide.

The way they let people bring way more than the limit on board — then those people insist on using YOUR overhead compartment.

The ever-worsening searches that did NOT stop the al-Qaeda terrorists on 11 Sept 2001.

I will fly with the first airline that allows me to board the plane with one of my Glock pistols worn openly visible on my belt. I have no problem with the ticket-counter people insisting that I use Mag-Safe or Glaser ammo – it is their plane, after all.
