A friend asked me the other day if I would take another management position as the twilight of my flying career approached. Well, I think I am good for another 10 years of flying . I have previously been an owner,operations manager,general manager and a Chief Pilot twice. Management puts stresses on you that being a line pilot never will. So, no thanks to anymore management jobs in aviation. I would like to complete my flying career happy and healthy.
I have posted a few before and after photos of George W. Bush, in case I need any reminders of what 10 years of management can do for your aging process.
After 4 more years in office the burden of responsibility and stress takes its toll.
