>>1685512>when you let diversity dictate the market and not ability
Let me explain something about demographics: with the possible exception of 1-2 pilots, none of the people on this board have any ability. And both those pilots that do have ability, got officer commission through the military.
All of the past world aerobatic champions are white, all but 2-3 current airshow performers are white. The US advanced and unlimited teams are all white.
If you let diversity dictate the market, aviation could hardly be more of a cesspool than it is now.
Compare this to healthcare -- doctors have to do a grueling residency, they are interacting with patients every day ,in some cases times their patients die no matter what they do, they have a higher suicide rate than the general population. Nursing has some of the same challenges, yet is a career that has traditionally been accessible to single mothers.
The average for-profit airline pilot is a fucking dumbass, can't fly for shit, no theoretical knowledge, doesn't have to interact with anybody besides other pilots. What are you complaining about?
