Female Pilot Gets Sexist Note From Male Passenger

A passenger on a recent WestJet flight left a crude, sexist note scrawled on a napkin denouncing the flights female pilot.

To Capt./WestJet, the note says. The cockpit of airliner [sic] is no place for a woman. A woman being a mother is the most honor not as captain Proverbs 31 (Sorry not P.C.) P.S. I wish WestJet could tell me a fair lady is at the helm so I can book another flight! Were [sir] short mothers not pilots Westjet.

The genius passengerwho, by all indications traveled safely from point to point on the woman-piloted flightdid not leave a name.

The pilot, Carey Smith Steacy, posted the note to Facebook where it began its viral journey across the Internet. On social media people have been offering words of support for Steacy.

WestJet said, We are enormously proud of the professionalism, skills and expertise of our pilots and we were disappointed to see this note.
