What It's Like To Be Married To A Pilot Right Now

Dangerous? Surely not...

Posted on

As you are probably aware, a rather high profile case concerning a plane has been in the news. The devastating loss of another Malaysian plane - this time through, it has been suggested, purposeful damage - has made it even more frightening to take to the air. But what about those people (both pilots and other members of staff) that make their living through taking to a plane, thousands of feet up? And what about their partners?

My husband is currently training to a pilot, so although he's up in the air, he isn't flying big jets yet.

Travelling by plane is still, statistically, the safest way to travel. In fact, you are much more likely to have a car accident on the way to or from an airport.

Because from now on, the assumption that our pilots were safe once in the air is no longer true.
