FAA group urges move to gender-neutral
terms, no more ‘airman’ or ‘cockpit’

A Federal Aviation Administration advisory group is urging the agency to replace words like “airman” and “cockpit” with gender-neutral terms like “aviator” and “flight deck.” The FAA’s Drone Advisory Committee put forth the recommendations in a report released Wednesday, part of a broader push for equity in the agency and aviation industry. “Research shows that the utilization of gender-neutral language can lead to a more inclusive environment that draws more people to the industry and helps keep them there,” the report states. The committee offered several alternatives for terms commonly used in the industry, such as using “manufactured” or “fabricated” instead of “man-made.”


The entire committee should be fired if this is how they spend their time. Pure juvenile folly.

We're supposed to take this seriously. FTA: "It also noted that the term 'cockpit' has at times been used by male crew members to 'undermine femme co-workers'—and proposed that 'flight deck' be used instead."

I guess they could call the cockpit a personpit. Who are these women who get to upset at common terminology? How big of a baby can they be? I'm so tired of all these upset people over a silly word. Do they not have more to worry about than simple wordage that's been around forever.

Can we agree there is something wrong with a person who finds a reference to slang for male anatomy in a section of an airplane? If I pull the lever on my pistol in order to shoot, guess that's a sex act too!!

"Flight deck" already has specific meanings relative to usage, usually the runway, and sometimes (if I recall correctly) the long-range cruising altitude. By the time they rework our vocabulary to eliminate every snowflake trigger, it'll be so generic that it can't communicate even basic concepts. For job roles, after the nouns are all "person", the adjectives will be "thing" or "something" or "anything"... Airman will be thingperson. Steersman will be thingperson. No more chairman, lineman, etc. And "owner" will eventually be verboten, as the concept of private property will be anathema in the collective vision; everything will belong to the government. I'd say "just say no"; but the only safe advice will be "just say nothing at all". You never know what will offend somebody and get you punished.

PLEASE! Stop finding deeper offensive meanings in everything. 99.9999999999% of the time words are just words an actions are just actions. Stop being offended at everything. Liberals are the most unhappy people ever! Since January, being offended has become a new occupation for many people. They search out things to be offended about even when there is no reason to. These people need to get over their self righteousness and indignation, take some Xanax, and get a life. Go out, have some fun and try to remember what life was like before you joined the ranks of of the prepetually offended.

Yes, it is all about the "offensive" names and words, and using inclusive ones solves all the problems. Using preferred pronouns also will solve all the problems. Those woke policies would stop airplanes from having problems. No more air disasters and would also stop plane hijackers too. Just call them by their preferred pronouns, and tell them there are "birthing people" on board. Problem solved. Clown world we are living in.

As the Marxist revolution oozes forward, I occasionally wonder what will happen to the useful idiots when the commies seize absolute power in this once great Republic. I believe that most AT readers are familiar with the term, but for those who need a brief refresher, a useful idiot, as defined by Wikipedia, "is a derogatory term for a person perceived as propagandizing for a cause without fully comprehending the cause's goals, and who is cynically used by the cause's leaders." In my opinion, this definition can be applied to a majority of the young, brainwashed radicals who have no idea about the true history of Marxism

Yet there appeared to be a great awakening at the Pentagon on Wednesday when Gen. Mark Milley, the highest-ranking military officer in the U.S. as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testified at a House hearing. The Chairman vehemently defended the teaching of critical race theory at West Point and, referencing the January 6 Capitol riot, said, “it is important that we train and we understand ... and I want to understand white rage.

Kamala Harris seems to be met with protesters wherever she goes.

But I’m thinking that wasn’t the photo op that she wanted. The Hispanic, Trump-supporting group of protesters also gifted her with a new nickname, “Que mala,” which would translate to “how mean,” or “how bad.” A great, short expression of “how bad” she and Joe Biden have been for the border — and for the country in general.
