Gonna be a rough landing for thousands of airlines pilots in the coming months — with reduced flights, its looking like thousands of airline pilots will be laid off or terminated in the next 3 months. Southwest is asking over 1,000 of their pilots to take a long furlough with some paid benefits —with Delta planning on off-loading nearly 3,000 pilots!! It costs “aspiring” pilots over $100,000 to train to become an airline pilot — not including college costs if you include that as most do. The “Friendly Skies” aren’t so friendly anymore!!!
