Going back to the main topic...

This article shows how aviation might change. Summing up, a bigger pain in the ass to what it changed after 9/11.

itís true that this is a bad moment make decisions, as spirit is as low as it can get, and we are all full of pessimism.

Iím 2 months into ATPL integrated course. I dropped my aerospace engineering job to follow this dream.

Now I have to re-rethink my life.
This pandemia affects all. Some die, some loose loved ones and others see their dreams crushed.

I still canít accept reality and every thought of going back to a plan B hurts like nothing before. But it will get better. Time heals everything.

My recommendation to those like me that just started the course, is go modular and take it easy.

No one can foresee what is going to happen, but most likely is not good for our purpose.

Good article, Spid. Well, by “good” I mean “informative in a pessimistic way”.

I assume that you are young enough to try again “one day”. I’m not. Well into 50s but Loganair were kind enough to offer me a Sim Assessment for FO. Cancelled. I’ve basically been told by HR “no chance, now”. At least I have an FI job that relies upon MOD sponsors (but we’re grounded at mo’ and have a full complement of FIs).

My daughter & fellow mums in their circle say that no way will they fly abroad with youngsters - it’s the whole air travel infrastructure thing - underground, buses, taxis, security, security trays, retail areas...then trusting that an aircraft is cleaned thoroughly. And that’s before getting to destination.

Damn and damn again. Damn.
