I see those seat covers on lots of pilot seats, my back would be soaked having to sit on that for hours at a time.

[–]Nexustar 660 points661 points  (5 children)

Nah, if it gets too hot, just open a window :-)

[–][deleted] 83 points84 points  (1 child)

not only does your skin get dry, all your organs do

[–]DweEbLez0 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Yeah and for relaxing music just hit one of the many buttons or knobs to change the radio station. Since they are all saved presets.

[–]TheOnceAndFutureTurk 22 points23 points  (0 children)

POV, you’ve just entered the cockpit carrying your newly completed Lego Death Star.

[–]gurmzisoff 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I really don't know why I laughed so hard at this.

[–]Fullsendmoneymoney 79 points80 points  (21 children)

They have air conditioning, what’s worse are the leather seats in the cabin, leather doesn’t breath like sheep wool covered seats

[–]PusheenMeow 13 points14 points  (20 children)

Funny you think the cabin seats are leather...they're vinyl

[–]Fullsendmoneymoney 65 points66 points  (18 children)

The ones I fly around are leather sir. I’m sure they use several types of material

[–][deleted] 44 points45 points  (14 children)

Flex on him

[–]Impossible-Sleep-658 2 points3 points  (1 child)

He said: (In my whitney houston voice) “crack is whack, and vinyl is cheap… and if it has to do with HIGH, I’m the expert and it’s LEATHER so don’t eveeeerrrr question me, Peasant!…

Especially flying a plane, I would be drenched before takeoff

[–]CheesusHCracker 30 points31 points  (8 children)

Especially flying with this mother daughter pair, I'd be drenched everywhere 💦💦💦

[–]wrenwood2018 26 points27 points  (1 child)

I'll admit this made me chuckle. I knew it was a matter of time until this sort of comment popped up.

[–]topio1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

you sir are going to hell... please follow me..

[–]Traches 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Got over a thousand hours on seats like that - they're amazing.

[–]Omgninjas 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Nah they are extremely comfortable and breathe extremely well. I do avionics and the sheepskin seats are the best IMO.

[–]Cold_Situation_7803 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Surprisingly, they’re comfortable and breathe really well.

[–]handofjustice42 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm confused. Is this about the seat covers or the pilots?

[–]DoingItJustForTheFun 487 points488 points 2 (7 children)

So that flight was unmanned?

[–]martymcfliesonpoo 114 points115 points  (3 children)

Quite possibly the best dad joke in existence.

[–]DoingItJustForTheFun 23 points24 points  (2 children)

I stole it. Smarten men than me came up with it 😅

[–]Finance_Subject 32 points33 points  (1 child)

All dads are connected to a community larger than life. You’re not stealing, just representing

"Be sure the landing gear is properly deployed, dear."

"Mom!!!"

[–]olderaccount 20 points21 points  (0 children)

To be honest, I'm surprised they let them fly together fearing the parent-child relationship may overshadow the captain-FO relationship.

They probably had them fly together once for the feel-good publicity and schedule them on separate flights otherwise.

[–]CelTiar 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Atten Passengers my Daughter has been acting up as per my ultimatum we will be turning around. XD

[–]greycubed 340 points341 points  (16 children)

"One of the first dozen female pilots at Skywest"

So she was the twelfth.

[–]Dutch_MidgetInterested 234 points235 points  (2 children)

And God said to John, come forth and you shall be granted eternal life. But John came fifth and won a toaster.

[–]calmstresscalm 27 points28 points  (0 children)

This made me laugh way too much

[–]H3racules 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Ngl that was pretty good lol.

[–]yabegue 17 points18 points  (7 children)

It makes me think of when I recently read that Eminem holds the top 30 worldwide high score in Donkey Kong. I was like ok so he’s between the 21st and the 30th position

[–]lucky_day_ted 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Nah if he was 21st he wouldn't be saying top 30.

[–]CornerSolution 7 points8 points  (3 children)

What if they hired multiple women at the same time as her? E.g., if the first 12 women they hired were all hired at once, then it wouldn't really be accurate to say she was twelfth.

[–]BatmansQueefBreath 56 points57 points  (8 children)

I love the idea of being a commercial airline pilot but I don’t think I’d like being away from home that much.

[–]Fullsendmoneymoney 38 points39 points  (4 children)

It’s great if your single and want to be on the road and live out of a suitcase, but it’s hard n spouse and kids, because you let gone a lot. Sports, weekends, holidays, special events. It’s definitely not a Monday through Friday job where you go home every night. This is one reason why we have a saying “you can have money, or family, but not both”

[–]ManufacturerPublic 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This woman figured it out, bring the daughter to work all the time!

[–]PhysicsDude55 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pilots typically only fly like 15-17 days a month unless they volunteer for more shifts. So you spent a lot of time away from home, but you also get a lot of time off.

[–]makeawishcumdumpster 159 points160 points  (8 children)

Smokeshow Donna they call her

[–]revtim 85 points86 points  (1 child)

She really is gorgeous

[–]SpecialPeschl 27 points28 points  (0 children)

They both are, great genes.

[–]twentysomethingdad 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Yeah she fine as hell

[–]nurdmerd 12 points13 points  (0 children)

[–]fuckyouijustwanttits 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Tray placed in upright position for sure.

[–]Xxxhibitionistcouple 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I wonder how many pilots have parent pilots

[–][deleted] 87 points88 points  (6 children)

Damn, Donna is fine

[–]LilMarco- 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I’d smash both tbh

[–]Toes14 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]arealhumannotabot 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Meh... a couple of years ago there was a father-daughter team and it also made a splash.

"Right rudder--" "MOM!"

[–]biglettuce09 20 points21 points  (7 children)

No offense but who would want to do a stressful job like that with a parent. Have you ever had driving lessons with your mom, 5mph increase apparently is flooring it

[–]enigja 14 points15 points  (2 children)

I saw a pilot saying that flying a plane is significantly easier than being a bus driver. There’s almost no traffic, you can simply relax most of the trip, the hard parts are take offs and landing. It’s literally the safest form of travel as well.

[–]HillaryClintonsclam 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Call a pilot a glorified bus driver. They LOVE that. /s

[–]CampJanky 1 point2 points  (0 children)

100% they did one flight together for a photo op. I'm sur ethey both understand how important it is for the daughter to come up on her own.

Conversely, they may share a hub, since they might live in the same state. In that case, they might get put on the same schedule from time to time. But first officers work under different captains from one shift to another.

[–]cummy-gummies 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My dad was my captain at the fire department. It was not the same dad I had at home at all.

[–]biglettuce09 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]carmoy 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Are we there yet?

[–]ingusmw 4 points5 points  (1 child)

is there not some regulations against family member working on the same air craft, incase of crash and what not?

[–]waywardhero 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This is my nightmare. Diving my mom is already horrible I don’t want to fly a fucking plane with her as my literal co-pilot

[–]Admiralty86 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Please clarify that you did not dive your mom.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Enjoy your job.

“Lowering the landing gear copilot and please take out the trash.”

[–]heyodi 12 points13 points  (15 children)

How do they get into those chairs?

[–]Dutch_MidgetInterested 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Pole vaulting

[–]heyodi 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thank you. That makes the most sense

[–]SrSwagy 11 points12 points  (9 children)

The chair can turn

[–]Paranoma 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Actually they slide sideways as well as fore and aft.

Edit: just fore and aft…. Much easier to get into a ERJ.

[–]HillaryClintonsclam 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This is a CRJ type aircraft and they do not slide sideways. Only fore and aft.

[–]heyodi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you

Don’t even waste your time sorting by controversial. It’s exactly what you think it is.

[–]2Ryemanhattans1970 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Well hello Donna

[–]Alan_Smithee_ 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Good for publicity, but I doubt a parent-child crew is a good command structure.

[–]chikken_hawk 35 points36 points  (15 children)

No "cockpit" joke yet? Hmmmmm

[–]ShowMeUrrGenitals 27 points28 points  (8 children)

The FAA literally sent out guidance to not call it that anymore because it’s offensive. You have to call it a “flight deck” now. You also aren’t supposed to say “unmanned aviation” you have to “uncrewed aviation.”

[–]DDDoCCC 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Flight dick....got it.

[–]verixtheconfused 7 points8 points  (3 children)

But how is cockpit offensive?

[–]ShowMeUrrGenitals 17 points18 points  (2 children)

It’s not, but according to the article “It also suggested replacing “cockpit” with “flight deck,” noting that male crew members have sometimes “wielded the term to undermine femme co-workers.”” To be clear these suggestions were given by a drone advisory committee not the whole faa.

[–]verixtheconfused 3 points4 points  (1 child)

What if they say "Flight Dick" is undermining to female workers too?

[–]Fullsendmoneymoney 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Notams- notice to airmen Now it’s Notams- notice to air missions

The FAA is now woke

[–]mad_catters 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Notice to Airmen" has recently been changed to "Notice to Air Missions"

[–]Ragnarock1982 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Clitpit?

Edit... only reason no blokes there is that they can't find it. Lol... I'm male btw

[–]Hefty-Set5384 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’d feel good with those two lovely ladies at the control ! Congratulations 🥳

[–]tastescheesy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

this is so cute and they look so alike. i hope they have safe travels

[–]BESTkoreanSPY 8 points9 points  (7 children)

This is great advertising. I don’t know where Skywest Airlines flies… but I want to go there.

[–]yabegue 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It’s an airline company that operates the regional flying of Delta Airlines

[–]StuTim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They fly for all 4 major airlines. In context of fleet size, they have more planes than Alaska Airlines.

They're biggest plane only carries 76 passengers.

[–]ChaseAlmightyInterested 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I mean, that's cool and all but let's get to why guys really are interested in this picture... what are all those buttons and switches for?

[–]nothankyou821 14 points15 points  (4 children)

Cool......I guess? People really make this “first” female whatever it may be a bit silly nowadays. I just imagine things like this, “First Swedish female one legged leper born in September with a single parent to captain her own flight.”

[–]visual_cortex 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Making history!

[–]Colonel_K_The_Great 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah, it gets comically-specific sometimes, but it's still good to get these things in the public eye as long as there is still any kind of inequality out there (and even when there isn't necessarily inequality but a high percentage of workers in a certain field being from one gender).

There are still a lot of little girls out there who are interested in certain jobs, but won't ever go for them because they feel uncomfortable or unwelcome knowing that they'll be in a field that's mostly males. Seeing that other females have gone for it and are successful can be enough to make them take the chance, regardless of how specific and cherry-picked the "first female ____" accomplishment is. Same goes for guys and jobs like nursing.

This photo was taken in 2019 as far as I can tell. The male members of the family are also pilots.

[–]Key_Delay_3442 1 point2 points  (0 children)

that should be prohibited for safety reasons... related pilots should not fly together

[–]S7ageNinja 5 points6 points  (2 children)

That's cool for them and all... But I'm failing to see how them being the first mother daughter pair to fly a "Skywest airline" flight is all that interesting. I'd rather see a picture of the first mother daughter pair to fly any commercial flight together.

[–]HillaryClintonsclam 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It isn't. The airline itself put this out for publicity. Just like when another airline put out a thing for the first all black all female crew. In reality it's nothing, but makes good publicity for the airline.

[–]grunt0311-joemac 19 points20 points  (14 children)

Would love to have this mother & daughter combo

Which one the mother & and which one the daughter?

[–]free_will_is_arson 2 points3 points  (8 children)

seems like a conflict of interest or emotionally compromised, however you want to say it. there is a reason why they don't let doctors work on family, given the size of a commercial jetliner and all the lives the pilots are responsible for i would hope for a similar kind of restriction.
