Let ’s admit it! Long-haul flights can be a real nightmare! They are definitely not fun at all and no one enjoys them. I mean just think about how stressful it is to spend hours flying between the heavens and earth while uncomfortably sitting in a small and enclosed space.
Besides in addition to the fact that long-haul flight is stressful, they can also be deadly boring! And guess what? You are definitely not the only one who experience this but pilots too! However, pilots are smart and that’s because they have found many fun and interesting ways to cope with their boredom to survive long-haul flights.
Many pilots love to challenge their mind and stimulate them to constantly work and think. Hence, they choose to spend their in-air downtime playing mind challenging games like crosswords and Sudoku puzzles.
Most of the long-haul pilots admit that these mind challenging games are less distracting than watching a movie or reading a book.’’They won’t pull you for too long’’, they claim.
Study For School
This might be the weirdest and the most unexpected thing to hear, but yes, pilots feel guilty about the time wasted in the airplanes and decided to do something about it!
So, instead of breaking the boredom and watch Adam Sandler movies or simply flipping through useless magazines, they choose to get studying done!
One pilot has said that one of his colleagues have actually learned quantum physics during his several transatlantic flights between the United Kingdom and South America.
You might have heard many pilots saying that they are not allowed to read while onboard but guess what this is not true! A pilot even confessed he is never patient enough to sit down and enjoy a good read whilst on the ground! He added saying that the reading experience is more fun and enjoyable when he is up on the air!
