Going on a date can be a nightmare or it can be success. We all fear that we might get stuck at a table with nothing to talk about. The awkward moment of silence that seems an eternity.
We’ll it doesn’t have to be this way. Why not go on a date with someone that shares the same interest as you? And in aviation there are so many aspects that you will almost certainly not run out of subjects on the first date.
Why do airplanes fly?, How long are a pilot on duty for, How long does it take to cross the Atlantic, How is the market for airplane spareparts these days?..well the list is endless.
Even people that are not pilots or flight attendants are interested in aviation because it is something that involves us all. Almost every adult person in the western world have been on an airplane or at least they know somebody who has.
Maybe they’re scared to death of flying, but talking to an airline pilot that can explain all the funny noises an airplane makes during take-off and landing is the best way to calm them down.
Give it a try, go on a date with somebody that has an interest similar to your own and I’ll bet you that you will keep the conversation going.
