Why you might not want to date pilots…


I’m going to give you a little advice that other flight attendants gave me when I first started flying, a piece of advice that is not very nice and very stereotypical, advice that my best friend Cady thankfully did not take because she’s now very happy, and that is – DON’T DATE PILOTS!  Because when you date pilots, you will most likely break up at some point.  Trust me, you don’t want that to happen.  Because if that happens you might find your ex doing something crazy, something totally insane, something like writing little notes about you.  Like really evil ones.  Or flying really low over your house.  Constantly.  Or even worse, dropping all those evil little notes on top of your house, as well as the homes around yours, while flying really low in his  private plane – like Tom Huey did.  Seriously.  He did.  And he’s now being held on $155,000 bail on suspicion of felony stalking and violating a restraining order.



  1. I thought this was going to be an article on pilot’s personalities and layover clothes.

    $155 grand set for bail, all for buzzing your ex’s house?

    Plus, with av-gas at $5 a gallon, and the V tail Bonanza buring 15 gallons per hour, that gets pretty expensive.

    What ever happened to good old fashioned drunk dialing at 3am?

  2. You’re funny. I’m married & I’m not a flight attendant so not much chance I’ll be dating a pilot any time soon. But thanks for the warning.

  3. So because one idiot pilot did something stupid we are ALL idiots and should all be avoided? That is like saying that flight attendant was a B**!!!! so every one of them must be. LOL

    • And then there is the part where they have little personality or no sense of humor.

      But you know…that’s just you Josh…not all pilots.

  4. I’m a General Aviation pilot of almost 20 years with a sense of humor. I can spot a “tongue in a human cheek” from an altitude of 5,280 ft (1 mile).

    I knew about this story when it broke. This guy just might be shootin’ “touch-n-goes” from a 6’x9′ cell.

    • Thank you, Bryan, because I was beginning to wonder… Don’t want to give anyone the wrong idea. I mean hello, I KNOW there are just as many flight attendants as pilots and anyway, my best friend is married to a pilot and he’s a great guy. She reads the blog. I’m sure she shook her head, but she knows when I’m joking.

  5. I’m not a pilot and I totally got that it was HUMOR. Jeez. Some of you folks need to lighten up. I just went out with a pilot for the first time recently. We’re planning a second date 🙂 Your post was funny and entertaining.
