i was just wondering

Postby Craig. » Fri Feb 28, 2003 12:37 pm

since i am looking to have a career as an airline pilot, i was just wondering if they have a problem with guys with long hair?? i mean is it more like military style buzz cuts or short style, or is it not much of a problem? i personally dont mind if i have to cut my hair but would rather not if i dont have to. thanks guys for any advice

Have you ever seen an airline captain with more than 1/8" of hair poking out from under his cap ?
