1. "my homie wanted to be a pilot." In response to Reply # 0
he studied it for a yr during college.
he didn't finish b/c the training was prohibitively expensive.
most pilots get their training hours in the military. those who don't go the military route have to pay lots of $$ to get the flight hours needed to complete their education. my homie learned this the hard way.

one pilot jokin'ly responded to the commotion with, "..yes, a woman is piloting this plane... don't make me turn this airbus around..." as we approached the tarmac. the cabin erupted in laughter & applause.
