Pilots On Food Stamps is a true to life account of the current pilot shortage facing the United States. The author uses real time-lines and actual pilot wages to demonstrate how airline flights are being cancelled and passengers left with few options. While airlines make billions of dollars in profits, the American taxpayer is paying for the food stamps that many airline pilots qualify for.
