This is probably one of the most random and bizarre questions asked on the forums, but i’m also curious to know the ratio of airline pilots that continue to wear their officer caps to work. Personally I think they’re awesome, they make you guys look even more professional, and make you stand out easier from the rest of your cabin crews in the airports. Why would you want to get rid of them?
I’m sure it’s personal preference for every pilot, but a person with half a brain knows that fashion evolves overtime. An example with hats in particular, every guy wore a fedora from the 30’s on to the mid 50’s, until the early 60’s. Some historians believe JFK helped influence the end of fedoras since he was an iconic President of his time and ironically every recent President before him wore one. Now it’s all snap backs and ball caps for sports teams.
It would be sad to see the same thing happen to Pilot officer caps in the near future, I personally don’t see them surviving much longer as the new generation of pilots come through. You obviously have no crystal ball, but what do you think?
