Fucking dating pilot hot!
HAVE you ever wondered just what it would be like to live the high life, by going out with a pilot?
Christopher Stork has been a commercial airline pilot for 14 years. Based in Washington DC, he has a three-year-old son and his wife is a former flight attendant. He tells us why landing a pilot should be on your to-do list.
"Dating a pilot is a real treat, and if you're so lucky to marry one, here are the secrets that are in store for you. I should know: I'm a pilot.
If you're into jetsetting
Being with a pilot means you get bootstrapped to your throttle jockey's pass privileges. This isn't automatic though. He or she may already have a drinking buddy listed as a 'domestic partner' so they can take free trips down to the islands or Vegas together.
But once you've proven your worth, imagine travelling for (almost) free during peak travelling season, when everyone else is willing to pay to get there. That's as long as there are seats available on the flight you're hoping to climb aboard.
You can look also forward to off-season trips to beaches and icy ski slopes. And while travel is cheap, you might get bumped from the flight because there's no room you can go home with the memory of being harassed by a security guard - for free!
As much as you may love your partner, it's nice to spend some time apart. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, as they say. If your pilot is junior in the airline you can look forward to him or her being away a lot, giving you even more time to watch bad TV alone on the couch.
As a junior you can start looking forward to Wednesday night date night, because he/she will be working weekends and will only be home for a few days during the week.
If you have a normal 9-5 job you'll enjoy many weekends out with your friends telling them about how awesome your new partner is. Practice this speech because you'll be telling it again at all major holiday gatherings until your pilot is seasoned enough in the airline to hold a decent schedule.
Everyone likes a uniform
Who doesn't love a veteran pilot in a season uniform?
You've enjoyed a four-day break from your pilot partner and can't wait for him or her to come home. Imagine the love you'll feel when you see them walking from the car looking this fine.
Conquer your fear of flying
Was your grandmother surprised when you told her you were dating an aviator? Did she remind you about your fear of flying and the time you peed yourself when you were little? Well, any fears you may have had will be as easy as a bedtime story when you hear about his or her day.
If your partner brings another winged warrior over and they have a few drinks then you'd better leave the room. Your fears will be realised as they casually tells you about the near misses, low fuel warnings and the time they volunteered to be the 'pathfinder' through the storms just because they wanted to get to the hotel before the restaurant closed.
You're likely to receive all kinds of gifts from the road. You'll never want for little bars of soap or shampoo. Your bookshelf and magazine rack will be stocked full of gossip magazines and bad fiction. Your couch throws will be thin airline blankets and your pantry will be full of snack mix and V8.
So, as an airline pilot I can assuredly say that my wife made the best decision of her life when she chose me. She's a lucky lady and repays me with endless bottles of sunscreen to keep my weathered skin healthy for many years in the sun to come."
