Why are Pilots so Cheap?, Episode #11

Cheap Pilots

In this episode Sky Talk features:

  • Email question from a flight attendant.  Believe it or not in our 35 years of flying, there are a number of flight attendants out there who think all pilots are “cheap”  So we take a humorous look at maybe why it may seem that way.  Its also a good understanding on the back ground of most commercial pilots and what it takes to get to that position.
  • How Come,  Another fun episode of the “how come” series.  Oh that’s good!
  • Our newest intro and outro music, most people don’t care but, its a lot of fun.

Sky Talk Radio is the brain child of two commercial pilots that currently fly in the airline system.  No, we are not going to say the name of our airline because that will get someones shorts in a knot, and we just can’t have that.  We encourage and tell stories from all facets of aviation.  As we build our audience of listeners we will continue to share your stories mixed in with ours until you get over your shyness and call in to Sky Talk Radio and help us out.  Yes this is a big hint to flight attendants since you have the best passenger stories as Kirbs and I lock ourselves in the cockpit to let you deal with the drama.

If you would like to submit a story and/or have it featured on our podcast, simply go to the “submit a story” button at the top of the website.  You can also submit stories or ideas on our Facebook page.  Also if you are enjoying the stories on STR, how about showing us a little bit of social love on our Facebook page and giving us one of those thumbs up things.  Also be sure to visit our sponsors (  since they are paying us good money to say their name!

And finally our technical software glitch has been solved (not by Kirbs) and we are now able to take your calls to STR directly from any cell phone.  So look for that link and number on the website soon.  The call in feature is not just for commercial pilots, its for flight attendants and regular passengers as well.
