There has been much discussion in the flight instruction community over the past several years concerning the dearth of professionalism among newly minted CFIs. One complaint showing up frequently in surveys is that today’s flight instructors just don’t know the value of dressing for success. Which is to say, they all too often show up for job interviews dressed more like homeless people than paragons of aerial education, set to fill the skies with the next generation of captains and first officers. As a prime example of this, Contributing Editor Joe Klunkerman offered this snapshot of a likely candidate from his days at Hooter Air, a now-defunct charter company that flew canceled grocery coupons from Walla-Walla to Katmandu. According to Joe, despite her obvious lack of sartorial judgment, he hired her. What a surprise.
