Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Welcome aviators to another episode of Aviator Peter Cast. My name is Chris. Palmer has my pleasure to have you here. Hope that you are well wherever you're at and you are taking steps forward and aviation to reach your goals thousand dreams and aspirations whatever they are whether that before getting a flying job or just for fun whatever it is now. Today's going to be a little bit different because I am going to speak and want to speak directly to your spouse your significant other year Your girlfriend boyfriend. Whatever your partners okay? Hey those people in your lives that are meant to be supporting you in aviation. This can be a confusing world for them sometimes. 'cause they don't quite understand so I want you to invite them to listen to this. You're welcome to listen with them. They can you can just kinda stand by and auto agreement as I go through some of these things and they can maybe get a little bit more insight into why you want to become a pilot or how and really and how they can support you in doing this so I'm going to paint a picture throughout this on. Why why you want to do this for them? So sparks discussion. Hopefully that the two of you can talk about on on wire wanting to do this in maybe maybe Enlighten them a little bit on this process. So I'm going to try to discipline myself throughout this. I'm going to attempt to speak directly to the spouse okay and I think the most common thing here here is probably a spouse some that married and the most common thing as well is The the mail going through the process us and not the the wife Even husband in some cases. So that's what we're GONNA do so we're going to go through that process us of just simplistically me talking to the spouse and Assuming that the the flyer is a male okay. So there's something we talked about in aviation and it is my controls and I even use this with my wife and And when we are flying an airplane we make sure that someone is flying the airplane at all times and so when someone else wants control they say my controls and then I'll say your controls actually be something out the other set and the says your control so it's a three way process so in other words Mike Controls. I'm taking taking this away from you. Usual podcast listener watcher and is my controls. I'm GONNA be taking the controls here for or the spouse okay and this is going to be exactly for them so all tempt to shape it in that way. This is helpful for you in understanding your your significant other. Okay where you're so in this. podcast cover several topics that Kinda landed on where your loved ones passion for flight. May they come from. 'cause that's what matters the most is. Where is this Dr for flying even coming from sometimes it comes out of the blue it seems like maybe even after after many years of being married and suddenly they're excited about this? Why aviation make complete your loved one in a lot of ways? So that's an interesting thing. Have you know they. They've been incomplete this whole time. But I'll talk about that. It's it's fairly interesting. Some interesting interesting insight. The role of time. This is where a lot of discussions going to come in the role of time money and dedication to becoming a pilot and how you as a spouse can help The truth of aviation safety because I think at the end of the day we want our loved ones to be saved. We wanted to return home. We don't want them to do anything inherently dangerous So the the truth of aviation safety and how directly it is connected to quality training. So we'll talk a lot about that. That's probably GonNa be where spend the meat of the time here. 'cause I got some good questions from you spouses in the community and Where why your role as a supporting loved one will make make or break their dream? And that's kind of a big statement but you really are the catalyst the cornerstone to make this happen or four or break this process so I know that there are many of you out there. That are supporting your spouse. I think you for that. This is something that is very very deep for them deeper than they probably know or have articulated yet in a lot of cases and and I commend you for allowing them to follow their dreams and pursue this. Because I know that that's not always easy to do. I know that for my wife and I don't want to necessarily speak for her but I think that she would find. This accurate is that my wife does so much behind the scenes to support. What I'm doing in aviation that that I can't even begin to thinker? 'cause I could not do what I do with this company with my flying without my wife. You know there are times that she's at home with the babies and I'm out having fun flying and it's my job but I could not do without her so I really appreciate appreciate and honor those of you. That are supporting your spouse's so I wanNA start there in in thanking you for even entertaining this. 'cause I know that it can be a little a bit scary and odd and weird and you're not quite sure where it's coming from and And you know you need a little bit of knowledge to kind of understand. So where does this his passion come from from your loved one Strangely enough it really goes probably deep into the past now. Passion is a word that I use a lot in. I think a lot of people in aviation use it because it's something that we definitely feel with with aviation as one of the best word to explain it and I actually looked at the definition and it said a strong and barely containable emotion and that is definitely true when it comes to aviation shen. It's also hard to define why we are so excited about it but that is that is the passion of aviation we. We really love it. We don't necessarily know why but I want to maybe shed some light on the UAE Possibly this passion is such a thing for your loved one so it probably goes back to an early age in probably a lot earlier than they realize. I've thought of this myself self and where it came from and I'm not sure exactly when it started but I know that when I was a young boy I played outside a lot. is Kinda before the video game era and I got the airplanes flying over my house all the time and it just kind of fascinated me to see the airplanes on the same path every single day one after the other landing at our international airport in always fascinated me. I remember seeing the lights off in the distance lined up to land on the runway at our International National Airport as well and then I really enjoyed at an early age World War Two and the story of Aviation World War Two and and how there's that fight fight of good versus evil and of course you know every young boy seems to like battle and and And those those stories of heroes and things in so I connected with that quite a bit it can also be something that came because of a family connection which is always a very powerful emotional. Oh connection maybe your your loved one had a grandfather A great uncle father would ever be. That was a pilot of some kind and feel like they want to honor that part of of their heritage by becoming a pilot or they feel that it is in their veins and in this actually just came to mind myself but I just realized that my mother reminded me that my grandfather took some flying lessons and back in the fifties and really enjoyed aviation. I don't ever remember talking about that when I was a young boy with my grandfather. He apparently gave it up for a family. But I just you know it can be a deep family connection it can take just one or two flights or or going to the airport and looking through the fence that can connect the child to aviation I also remember when I was about eleven or twelve years old old going on my first small airplane flight with my dad and a colleague of his to go look at some real estate and I remember being the back very cold but I really enjoyed way too
