Pilots – behind the cockpit door

OK – I confess. I will watch any kind of behind-the-scenes airline or aircraft documentary, drama, re-creation, or even possibly manga series.

My av geekiness knows very few bounds in this department. I don’t find Air Crash Investigation as seductive – maybe that’s because I like to see the successful operation of an aircraft, rather than the unsuccessful. Strange, as my schadenfreude is unbound when it comes to shows like Border Security.

FUNFACT: EasyJet uses New Zealand as a training ground, as its geography reflects the diversity pilots will face in Europe – but without the airtraffic

Most of them concentrate on airlines or airports, and I will be highlighting some of these over the next few weeks. But a behind-the-scenes-with-pilots is a much rarer phenomenon.

Easyjet: Inside The Cockpit produced by ITV in the United Kingdom is outstanding in this genre, even though it seems restricted to just two episodes – which I have linked to above (Ep 1) and below (Ep 2). They run about 45 minutes each – so settle back.

For me, travel is not just where you are going, but how you travel there. I'm not one of those people who say, 'I'm perfectly happy in economy'. Anyone who does is stupid or lying. I far prefer a suite to a room, and first over cattle class. Some people say I have attitude.
