Why I Want to Be a Pilot
I want to be a pilot when I grown up because it's a fun job and easy to do. That's why there are so many pilots flying around today.
Pilots don't need much school, they just have to learn to read numbers so they can read instruments. I guess they should be able to read road map so they can find their way if they get lost.
Pilots should be brave so they won't be scared if it's foggy and they can't see, or if a wing or motor falls off, they should stay calm.
Pilots have to have good eyes to see through clouds, and they can't be afraid of lightening or thunder because they're closer to them than we are.
The salary pilot make is another thing I like. They make more money that they can spend. This is because most people think plane flying is dangerous, except pilots don't because they know how easy it is.
There isn't much I don't like, except that girls like pilot and all the stewardesses want to marry pilots so they always have to chase them away so they don't bother them.
I hope I don't get airsick because I get carsick and if I get airsick I couldn't be a pilot and then I'd have to go to work.
