Once I learned that the drama's premise was an airline pilot with a drug and alcohol addiction, I dismissed Flight altogether. Why should I endorse an insulting portrayal of my profession? Our pilot union was quick to publicly rebuke the premise. But when it came out on DVD, I couldn't resist. Not only were nonpilot friends commenting on the film, but so were flight attendants. And the feedback was positive, which I found disturbing. I felt the GA readership of this magazine was owed an explanation — not that one was really required, of course. Flying's readers are intelligent people with the ability to separate basic fact from fiction. But I want to have a little fun with Hollywood. After all, the filmmakers had fun at the expense of my profession.
