✈ You get to pilot and get paid for it! What could be better? ✈

TOP GUN Tom Cruise
Top Gun 1986
Some of us, probably the younger generation got interested in being pilots seeing Tom Cruise doing Top Gun. Back then even though the movie have now become somewhat of a cult movie the doubts where that the movie even could win an Oscar. No one really knew how well an action movie with F-14 fighter jets and Mig-21's would be received by the general public.

But Top Gun was a great hit. And I'm sure inspired many of us to become pilots. Don't tell me that you would not want to become a pilot or go flying after seeing that movie?

But it's really too bad the director of Top Gun Tony Scott committed suicide jumping off the Los Angeles bridge. At first I thought he had jumped into the Hudson river, because it was around that same time the heroic Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger with both engines out, a cool-headed pilot maneuvered his crowded jetliner over New York City and ditched it in the frigid Hudson River saving all 155 passengers and crew members.

But hey don't let things like that get you down now! I mean everyone is going to "ditch" sometime, so why not get paid doing what you love until then, right!

You get to fly and get paid doing it
You get to fly and you get paid doing it!
