One of the things to particularly love about ladies, is their ability to “multi-task,” something most men are not very good at, or at all. Women can have babies, manage households, manage husbands, drive racing cars, fly aeroplanes and run countries. Of course, men can do most of those—pregnancy excepted—but not all at the same time. I should qualify this by stating that I am aware that not all women are ladies, but for the sake of this exercise we will go with the ladies. Mostly.
When I board an aircraft, something I tend to do fairly regularly, I am always relieved when we get to the “captain speaking” bit of the early announcements from the cockpit and it is a lady identifying herself as the Captain. I know then that the aircraft will be flown absolutely by the book, whereas I view male pilots as closet “zoomers.” Apologies to all male pilots but you do have that inbuilt zoomer mentality, especially if you came to the cockpit via military fighter flying, where zooming is compulsory! I am comforted by the thought that the lady will execute all her checks with utmost efficiency and manage the flight to perfection.
