I'm rather lucky that my 13yr lad has seen the light and does not want to be a pilot... for which I rejoice (wrote OKC with the strains of Handel's Messiah / 'Hallelujah' sounding within his brain). Oh he's a smart lad is that one and he'd be wasted in this cesspit called Professional Aviation!!

He's well aware that working for someone else is a mugs game and my constant advice to him is to find something that he enjoys doing, where he can work as his own boss.

I've also told him that if it 'Flies, Floats or F**ks', he should steer well clear of it or, failing that, RENT!
