Guys I Love: Confident Airline Pilot Guy

Welcome to Guys I Love, it’s pretty self-explanatory, it’s the opposite of Guys I hate. Got a guy you love? Drop me a comment – we probably love a lot of the same guys.


Most airline pilots stick with the basics – the weather, time duration and the gravel voice. Regardless of what is happening they are under control and want you to know “they got it.” It takes a special mindset to fly a commercial jet and having confidence is a good skill to have. This past week I flew for the holidays and was reminded of this when our pilot commented on the gate. He was going through the typical weather, time, etc… when he says “….and we’ll be pulling into gate C18”, he paused and then added, “it’s a good gate.” I love that! Hell yeah I want to know our pilot likes the gate he got. What if it was C17? Would he had apologized for it being a hell hole? I will probably never know, buy I did love the confident pilot and how he felt about our gate. “Oh, and by the way folks we are coming in to gate C18 – it’s a fucking great gate, you’re really going to enjoy it!”
