+ lots of perks...
I see also Air France has lowered its entry requirements: BAC + 2, good at maths, but spectacles permitted.

Despite constantly hearing 'every little boy wants to be a train driver', it is one of the things that I have never, ever wanted to be.

Hurtling along at 100 mph (or more or less, n'import) on steel on steel is my worst nightmare. Give me rubber on tarmac every time at a stately 60 :lol:

Now aeroplanes, a different matter, if an engine fails you can float them back to earth and pick your spot. What puts me off is the hours of instruction trusting someone else's skills, I am a very untrusting person. :YMPRAY:

OK, I had to learn to drive, but I made sure I grasped it in the least possible time and have hated the co-pilot's seat ever since. :))
