“The cockpit of an airliner is no place for a woman.”

Carey Smith Steacy, a Canadian airline pilot with 17 years of experience, apparently received a blunt and critical letter from a distraught passenger recently. But the issue was not the pilot’s flying style, penchant for finding mid-air turbulence or poor bedside manner.

The issue at hand was the pilot’s ovaries, and the fact that she was not at home doting on children. Where, apparently, she is supposed to be.

“The cockpit of an airliner is no place for a woman,” reads a letter written on a napkin left aboard a Calgary flight to Victoria, B.C., obtained by Metro News. “A woman being a mother is the most honor. Not as ‘captain.’ Were (sic) short on mothers, not pilots WestJet.”

The letter further contained reference to a biblical verse and concludes, “In the end, this is all mere vanity.”
