Why are all pilots male? …

Why are all pilots male? … I am wondering, being at the Charles de Gaulle-Airport in Paris (end of vacation) waiting for take off to Berlin.

  • Obviously this is a problem, and still unsolved, CNN tells me. „Getting more women involved in all aspects of aviation is a nut that everyone in the industry would like to crack but that no one, to date, has“, said Chris Dancy, a spokesman for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association to CNN.
  • Of course, not ALL pilots are male, „just“ 95%.
  • An answer by Angela Masson, a retired American Airlines captain: „It shouldn’t be very surprising that women don’t flock to a stressful male-dominated job that requires lots of expensive and continuous training, takes them away from home for large chunks of time and makes it difficult to raise a family.“
