Who’s flying the plane?

When I take a flight, I never give a moment’s thought to who is going to fly the plane or whether they’ll do a good job. I have faith that pilots know how to fly planes, and that I don’t need to be concerned.

But what if, while I’m standing in line for my flight, someone from the airline were to tap me on the shoulder and say that the pilot had not shown up and that I had been chosen to fly the plane? For starters, I know nothing about flying planes, so that would sound like very bad news for the passengers. Obviously, it’s never going to happen.

We'd love to hear from you!
