United Airlines seeks to train 5,000 pilots
by 2030, and wants half of them to be
women and people of color

Original Article

After halting hiring during the coronavirus pandemic, United Airlines is planning to bring on hundreds of pilots and launching a flight school to prepare the next generation for the cockpit. (snip) At least half of the 5,000 students United hopes to train by the end of the decade will be women and people of color, the airline said. Currently, about 7% of the United’s pilots are women and 13% are people of color.


Sounds like the idea is to train them, but how can you when punctuality, correct math solutions, speaking English, logical thinking, precision and so much more are all "white supremacy?" Train them all you like, but they cannot be trusted to do the incredibly difficult job of piloting a passenger jet unless they relinquish their core beliefs as womyn and POC.

I’d like them to hire the best and safest pilots. Guess that’s not a priority for United Airlines.

In my opinion many corporations have lost it. What can we mere citizens do now? Just sit back smile and take it? How about a little push back? Start with elections in two years? Let's give them a purge of liberals like the country has never seen. If they change the voting law we will just take advantage of it in the same way Democrats plan to do. We can and will win!

Nice dream, but it's already 2021, and I know I'm not flying in any aircraft with a pilot that has a McDonald's pilot license. It takes years of training to properly fly an aircraft of the size of a passenger jet with about two hundred people on board in a various conditions. Besides, it's not the flying part that takes practice, it's the take offs and landings. It's why the terrorists of 9/11 didn't need to learn how to take off and land. Just be able to turn a plane and aim. The flying part is done by the computer on board.

People may be concerned about all those prospective diverse pilots but through various directions it seems that another problem regarding safe air travel is already here. It seems that our air traffic controller's ranks have been recruited largely with diversity in mind, to the concern of the seasoned veterans who are determined to be the best at what they do.

This will almost to a certainty mean lowered standards for affirmative action pilots. Lowered standards WILL cause more crashes, guaranteed. Many women and minorities are fully capable, but I will bet you not enough are actually interested to make up that quota without lowering standards. Watch for more smoking holes in the ground.

As someone that used to fly three or four times a week. I had just 3.5 million miles on NWA/Delta when I retired. I would never fly on an aircraft manned by an 'Affirmative Action' cockpit crew. To the fools and idiots at United, we don't want to be in an airplane wth the"man/woman/or it" that met all of your affirmative action boxes. If that happens, we will see third world pilots that are as proficient and knowledgeable as the Lion Air or Ethiopia Air that crashed because the pilots didn't know how to fly to their next destination. That's probably why they kept re-engaging the 'autopilot. All American based airlines (not the airline American) needs to hire only the very best. I will be damned if I'm going to let an 'Affirmative Action cockpit' crew fly me into a mountainside. MSgt USAF (ret)

Are you kidding me? Affirmative action pilots in charge of hundreds of lives? Does anyone understand how affirmative action actually works? It's a jobs program for unqualified people who could never qualify in order to virtue signal and make diversity quotas. How stupid are liberals? Stupid enough to think that it's better to have an unqualified pilot fly their plane because they are a minority instead of someone who might actually keep them alive. If this isn't proof that liberals suffer a brain disorder, I don't know what is. God save us from these morons.

Which only means that the standards used grade the performance of pilots will be lowered. Which also means that safety will take a back seat to diversity. United Airlines is now being run by a sick person. When you put diversity above safety its time for you to go.

Possibly the dumbest thing any country could do from an energy standpoint is to promote widespread use of electric vehicles, while simultaneously mandating reliance on wind and solar energy, which work less than half the time. Moreover, governments’ politically-motivated reliance on electric vehicles like buses has been a disaster.

Communications from top leadership at the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) shows them instructing active duty and retired service members that they are forbidden from criticizing Joe Biden for his utter incompetence that led to the crisis in Afghanistan. In an email that was uncovered by the Daily Wire, the Naval Intelligence Chief of staff, Captain Scott Chesbrough, gave current and former members of the Navy a reminder to follow the uniform code that prohibits them from disrespecting senior government leadership, especially if it comes to feeble Ol’-Joe.

WASHINGTON — It’s called the loneliest job in the world for a reason. Surrounded by everything a superpower can offer and watched by all, President Joe Biden wore the weight of a lonely man as he came to grips in recent days with the deadly end of the American effort in Afghanistan and tried to keep the focus on what, to him, is the bottom line. (Snip) Biden found himself in a real-time crisis that overrides the platitudes he offered when running for the office and in the early months of his presidency. “America is back," he likes to say.

A nation horrified by its first surrender in its nearly 250-year history was further humiliated when Biden refused to go to Dover Air Force Base to pay his respects to the 13 Marines who arrived by casket. (snip) As commander-in-chief, Biden is responsible for those deaths. His poor judgment killed those Marines. He owed it to them to own up to this. He owed it to the families to share their grief. And yes, out of 13 families, I expect someone could make a scene. I expect someone would lash out at him. I expect that someone would make Biden feel very, very bad. But that is part of the job.

Until recently, the practice of medicine was based more on science, less on science fiction. (snip) evidence today has taken a back seat to wishful thinking — or is it an agenda? (snip) This science fiction story begins with the 2019 "virus" and 2020 "vaccine." A selection of the story's chapters include a virus of which the CDC claimed not to possess a reference sample. A vaccine that did not fit the definition of a vaccine. Approval of a vaccine for which the studies had not reached clinically important endpoints.

ere’s the latest word from the most transparent administration ever: Simple question: Why? At this point, the Pentagon is best known for publicly downplaying the threat the Taliban posed for taking over all of Afghanistan, and for greenlighting closing its largest operational base in Central Asia. It’s still purging competent minds but retaining and encouraging its woke drones. Gen. Mark Milley, the 21st-century version of Gen. Custer, still has a job. Biden has lied, or remains unaware, about the fact that our allies are livid at him and questioning whether working with the United States is in their interests anymore.

President Joe Biden urged Louisiana residents to 'pay attention and be prepared' today as Hurricane Ida approaches the US Gulf Coast - Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said today that the storm will be 'one of the strongest hurricanes to hit anywhere in Louisiana since at least the 1850s.'The impending hurricane, currently at a Category 2, could reach a Category 4 designation on the Saffir-Simpson scale by the time it makes landfall Sunday afternoon or evening - the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina - generating winds up to 140MPH and submerging a mass of Louisiana shoreline under several feet of rainfall.

One of the Marine Corps principles of leadership is to accept responsibility for your actions. (snip) If you think anyone will be held to account over this utter Afghan debacle, consider this: In 1999, Amendment #388 to the Defense appropriations bill passed the U.S. Senate (described on page S5891 of the Congressional Record — Senate for May 25, 1999). The purpose of this amendment was to posthumously restore the rank and promote both Admiral Husband Kimmel and General Walter Short, the top Navy and Army Commanders at Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.
