In a previous relationship, he traveled for work about 2 weeks out of a month.... Only had experience with a co-pilot and while you can't lump any group of people (so I don't really know what you want) you already seem to know the main thing, they're gone a lot.
In my experience, he was very egotistical because of his job.
And those that are trying to make a marriage work often spend their time explaining the ins and outs of the pilot career to their significant others left behind, often left alone to deal with the challenges of raising a family.
He was short and heavyset with a heart condition not exactly Brad Pitt.
Also I hope this is someone you know who lives in the US.
Never did I think when I baby sat him at 5 yrs old would he grow up to think he is far superior to me. There is this aura of glam with a pilot and I can imagine a lot of opportunities to fool around. I knew one pilot personally and he left his wife (my cousin) for a flight attendant (and then left her for another one after that). Only had experience with a co-pilot and while you can't lump any group of people (so I don't really know what you want) you already seem to know the main thing, they're gone a lot.
So, take it or leave it, but from anything I have ever heard, they do not have the greatest track record or reputation for fidelity or humility. In my experience, he was very egotistical because of his job.
I got contacted once on an online dating site by someone claiming to be a pilot with a pic in a uniform too, who needed me to send him money for his son in Africa.
I was a flight attendant for 11 years, resigned 3 years ago to become an RN.A lot of people don't realize that pilots make really crappy money.My nephew's first gig out of college paid him an average of 12 bucks an hour I don't think he makes much more than that now after 5 yrs. I mean really who cares if you can do what you love but the ego things drives me nuts. Never dated one but do have two friends that are flight attendants (one for Air Canada and one for Qatar Air) and conversations regarding pilots seem to always include the words "serial cheaters" and "conceited".Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum.

Most airline pilots wouldn't trade their job for anything.Didn't stick around long enough to see how big his ego got once he became pilot instead of co.
