That’s rough for the pilots. They’d have to get up at about 1 or 2 AM for that departure time

Nice shots! I agree with @Captain_Emergency. I want to be a pilot when I get older, and those early morning flights will be rough. Coffee is your friend.


Yep! I have the same aspiration to fly in the future, and yes, caffeine is definitely our saviour haha

Here in Minnesota, lots of passengers and crews are loyal to Caribou, which is based here.

Thanks for all the likess!!

If you want to see more photos, let me know!!

depends on where they live and other factors

SWA policy is pilots have to be at the airport 1 hour prior to departure time. Factor in a drive and getting up and getting ready as well.

True. For where I live, they must arrive about 30 mins (minimum) before their time to start up the aircraft.
