With the economic doldrums and high gas prices, I’m sure it’s not the greatest time to run an airline right now. And by extensions, probably also not the greatest time to work for an airline. Through Chicken Wings I have got to know quite a few professional pilots during the years and although they all love their job, it seems that there is a reason why everybody says you really need to love aviation if you want to take up flying as a carreer.

If you’re interested in a non-sugarcoated insight into the aviation industry, you might want to check out “Squawk 7700“, a great book by our good friend Pete Buffington. You can also find it on Amazon, where it frequently rises to the top of the bestseller list of aviation books, but you can also get it from us!
