Congratulations! My cousin works for Skywest Airline, too. He became a pilot against his mother's wishes because his father was a US aviation pioneer and died in Ultralight freaking accident. My mother found out my brother was secretly taking private Cessna lessons with his friend. She freaked out and laid down the law to stop his lessons. She just doesn't want him to end up like our cousin. Flying runs in my mother's family.
Thank you! Nothing wrong with being a pilot. My cousin served in the army as Apache helicopter pilot and he also flew Cessna planes. I'm sure there is improvements in safety today and NTSB learned a lot from the past accidents/incidents to ensure that won't happen again. I'm sure planes are much safer now than the past but still some things can go wrong such as bird strike and among other things. I'd suppose that we'd risk more driving in the car than in the planes. Military runs in the family too and being a pilot is my cousin's passion.

Try to tell that to my mom and his mother. They even threw statistics at mommies, but they don't care. Oh, well. My mom was not happy when she found out my date took me for flying and let me fly for a bit in the past. My maternal grandfather and his brothers were in Luftwaffe (German Air Force). That's where it begun. My other German born cousin was killed in helicopter accident during the American Army training. You see why my mom thinks it's a curse. I tried to convince her it's not a curse and that they're a risk takers. *shrugs*

Air rage incidents are getting worse on these planes lately, forcing pilots to land planes to kick them out. They're pretty annoying to them.
