Figure 8 Posted November 22, 2005 Report Share Posted November 22, 2005 Volition, good point and I don't think that anyone should bash anyone or tell them to step down and let a lowtimer take over just because they want to work a little less than the next guy. Of course a lowtimer at the beginning is going to be willing and should be willing to work as much as they can to get themselves established and start to build their career. After flying for a few years, it isn't so much of a trade off anymore. The 2 things most of us want after getting experince is time off and money. Not necessarily in that order. But once again each to their own. We all have different priorities and these change at any given time in ones life. When one is footloose and fancy free who really cares what you are working but once you start to establish a life with someone and then eventually a family, that is a whole different story. As far as trying to find a woman who is able to tolerate a crazy schedule where her man is gone all the time, there really aren't that many out there. It does take someone who is independent, confident and doesn't feel like she needs a man around her 24/7. I have to give all those woman that have made it work after many years of dealing with missing husbands a big round of applause. It can't be easy but if you love someone, trust them and can stand living at least half of your time by yourself then I guess you should marry a pilot.
