Couldnít agree more. The other factor that gets dismissed too easily - donít forget why most of us got into Aviation - passion for flying. The lifestyle that it brings is just the icing on the cake.

We will need lots. All the naysayers that said covid would be the end of aviation forgot that itís just another cycle.

After a boom thereís a bust, and after a bust, thereís a boom. Be ready.

True - lifestyle is a mix of a bunch of factors. Some like the quick command, others the lifestyle of a legacy airline. Not much use for the command if it pays less than you need / want.
