Social Media has killed many peoples careers. We all live in a “fishbowl”. Always do your best to act professionally whether in OR out of uniform.
A Regional Pilot / Growing YT channel recently posted a video about the 777 engine failure. Although I didn’t see the video, many pilots who did were talking about it today & said it was poorly done, in bad taste, and speaking with very little knowledge on the 777.
On this channel the pilot is either in uniform talking about airline life or in skimpy clothing talking about vacations and working out.
The video has now been taken down but I’m sure it can still be found in some places. Apparently there are already memes about it. It is also being said that many United pilots are angry & now United, the Pilots Airline, and their Union all are aware of the video.
This very well could cause serious career issues for this pilot… all to grow a YT channel that maybe makes $5/m.
So beware of what you post on Social Media and how you act generally in public.
