Tahun 2038: Dunia Butuh 804 Ribu Pilot Wanita

first_img(Pilot Career News) Pilot perempuan pertama yang berlisensi di dunia adalah Raymonde de Laroche. Dia mendapatkan lisensinya 110 tahun lalu pada 8 Maret 1910. Namun bila berkaca pada masa lalu, di tahun 2020 ini, hanya ada lima persen pilot perempuan dan 1,42 persennya adalah kapten. International Society of Women Airline Pilots mengatakan, jumlah total kapten penerbangan wanita di Eropa bahkan tidak memenuhi kebutuhan di penerbangan Boeing 747.Baca juga: Deborah Lawrie, 67 Tahun, Pilot Wanita Tertua yang Masih Aktif di Maskapai KomersialPadahal maskapai melakukan upaya bersama untuk mendorong perempuan ke kokpit. KabarPenumpang.com merangkum thepointsguy.co.uk (8/3/2020), dalam Perang Dunia II, wanita memiliki peran penting yakni The Women Airforce Service Pilots atau WASPS mengangkut dan menguji pesawat militer pada awalnya. Tahun 1960-an Bonnie Tiburzi sangat ingin terbang untuk maskapai komersial meskipun ada beberapa yang mengatakan tidak mempekerjakan wanita sebagai pilot. Namun akhirnya Tiburzi mendapat pekerjaan sebagai pilot American Airlines wanita pertama. Dia tidak menghadapi tentangan dari rekan pria tetapi menerima surat dari istri seorang pilot yang menuduhnya mengambil pekerjaan dari seorang pria yang membutuhkan untuk memberi makan keluarganya. Saat ini, sebagian besar maskapai mendorong wanita untuk bekerja di kokpit dan diperkirakan sekitar 804 ribu pilot wanita diperlukan untuk memenuhi permintaan pada 2038 mendatang.Jika maskapai benar-benar ingin mendapatkan persentase pilot meningkat, mereka perlu mengatasi hambatan nyata yang mencegah perempuan mengambil kursi di kokpit. Beberapa maskapai yang menyadari hal ini, menempatkan pilot wanita mereka sebagai teladan yang terlihat. Kapten Qantas Helen Ternerry mengoperasikan penerbangan Project Sunrise tanpa henti dari London ke Sydney. Ternerry diketahui sudah terbang bersama Qantas selama 31 tahun.“Anda tidak bisa menjadi apa yang tidak bisa Anda lihat. Daripada membicarakannya, kita meletakkan gambar di sana”, kata Trenerry.Di luar operator legacy Amerika Serikat, United Airlines memiliki jumlah pilot wanita tertinggi, yaitu 7,40 persen persen. Pilotnya berada di depan anak-anak di kelas untuk menginspirasi imajinasi mereka dari tahap awal. Maskapai ini “melibatkan gadis-gadis di seluruh dunia ketika mereka mulai memikirkan masa depan mereka sendiri sehingga mereka dapat memastikan masa depan yang kuat bagi para wanita di industri ini.Media sosial juga membantu generasi global digital asli yang dapat melihat kehidupan perempuan dalam pesawat terbang, seperti Eva Claire Marseille (@Flywitheva), yang membawa 153 ribu pengikut dengannya saat ia menerbangkan Boeing 747 di seluruh dunia. Tetapi ada dimensi yang sangat nyata dan sering tidak disebutkan tentang menjadi seorang wanita yang dapat membuat wanita percaya bahwa menjadi pilot mungkin tidak melengkapi rencana hidup lainnya, yaitu memiliki anak.Bahkan ada pertanyaan apakah menjadi seorang pilot dan sebagai ibu bisa berdampingan? Mungkin ada yang berargumen bahwa sejumlah pramugari bisa mengelola waktu mereka meski karir seorang pilot sangat berbeda. Namun, kedua peran itu penting untuk memastikan keselamatan dan kesejahteraan penumpang. Pilot memiliki jalur yang lebih panjang dan lebih keras untuk dipekerjakan dan tetap dipekerjakan oleh sebuah maskapai penerbangan.Mereka menjalani pelatihan dan memeriksa sepanjang karir mereka, termasuk sesi simulator penerbangan intensif dan pemeriksaan jalur tahunan. Jika maskapai penerbangan serius dalam meningkatkan jumlah pilot wanita, kebijakan kerja fleksibel mereka perlu memenuhi kebutuhan wanita. Perwira pertama senior Virgin Atlantic, Adelle Roberts, terbang lama dan menghasilkan daftar 75 persen, yang cocok untuknya.“Adalah mungkin untuk menjadi pilot dan ibu. Saya melakukannya dan saya dapat dengan jujur ​​mengatakan bahwa sepanjang karir saya, saya tidak pernah memiliki keseimbangan kehidupan kerja yang luar biasa,” kata Adelle.EasyJet telah membuat kemajuan besar dan mengatakan itu sesuai dengan tujuannya untuk 20 persen dari semua pilot yang baru direkrut menjadi perempuan pada tahun 2020. Saat ini, India menjadi pemimpin dunia yang memiliki pilot wanita sebanyak 12 persen dan dua kali lipat lebih banyak dari Amerika Serikat.Baca juga: Madeleine Schneider, Pilot Cantik yang Punya 1,1 Juta Followers InstagramSebagian alasannya adalah meningkatnya pertumbuhan penerbangan komersial di India, dan sebagian adalah kurangnya kesenjangan gender dalam pembayaran berkat mandat serikat pekerja, tidak seperti di industri lain di India. Organisasi pelatihan juga ikut serta dalam aksi tersebut, dan mengambil sikap aktif dalam menangani perwakilan perempuan dalam penerbangan yang kurang.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedDeborah Lawrie, 67 Tahun, Pilot Wanita Tertua yang Masih Aktif di Maskapai Komersial09/03/2020In “Featured”Pertama di AS, Pilot Pengidap Diabetes Terbangkan Pesawat Komersial03/07/2020In “Featured”Covid-19 Bikin Pilot Banyak Nganggur!

For some NCAA tournament teams, road to Indy started overseas

first_imgThe catalyst of Notre Dame’s ACC tournament title — and its Midwest region 3 seed in the NCAA tournament which begins this week — is two-fold: Its team’s chemistry, and its veteran makeup.The reasons No. 1 overall seed Kentucky remains unbeaten and sits six games away from completing the first perfect season since 1976? Its superior talent, and its mental state.Both of these teams got a head start on developing what would ultimately make them Final Four contenders. They did so by going on foreign trips in the offseason, setting the stage for their slightly more cohesive, experienced teams to find success once college basketball’s regular season began. The Irish went to Italy last August; the Wildcats played exhibition games in the Bahamas that same month. USA TODAYKentucky head coach John Calipari uses lessons from his playing days to push No. 1 Wildcats The trip to the Bahamas allowed Kentucky coach John Calipari to mix returnees from an extremely talented group which reached the title game last season with a new, extremely talented group of freshmen. He experimented with a “platoon” system, the concept and subsequent execution of sharing minutes almost evenly between 10 elite players in two separate units. He got a chance to see both his roster’s talent, but also its psychological state — whether a team with 10 projected pros could play unselfishly.“We needed to do this to see if the platoon system would work,” Calipari said, acknowledging that he tested this without Willie Cauley-Stein or Trey Lyles healthy. “And not only would it work, would they buy into it and would they allow it to work? And we got all answers were yes on that. And that’s where we knew we could do this. … “We did it without wins and losses in mind. … Then we got down there against these guys, and we start winning, and all the sudden it’s a little bit better than what we thought — as a matter of fact, a lot better. Our team spirit was unbelievable, and we could see that we had a little special sauce that was going to work.” USA TODAYKentucky’s Bahamas trip came at hefty cost USA TODAYHere are the bracket tips to win your office pool — maybe The Bahamas was also where the players admit they first started thinking that they were capable of a historic season. Right now, they’re 34-0, and playing their best basketball of the year.For Brey and Notre Dame, the foreign tour served a similar purpose — but with a vastly different roster makeup. Brey took a veteran team to Italy, one that was reinserting Jerian Grant after a suspension related to an academic matter forced him to miss the second half of last season. Last season, its first in the ACC, Notre Dame finished just 15-17.“We had this one to Italy scheduled,” Brey said. “Little did I know Jerian Grant would be coming back after being dismissed. After a tough year, if you have a foreign tour, it’s absolutely medicine for the sick. There’s no question. It was for us.”Brey, like many coaches, felt the biggest benefit of the trip was the 10 extra days of practice that come along with it.Georgetown’s John Thompson III also is proponent of foreign trips. He took his team to China prior to the 2011-12 season, in which his Hoyas emerged as one of the nation’s surprise teams and ultimately made it to the NCAA tournament’s round of 32. This season the Hoyas are the South region’s 4 seed.”(We could) kind of re-teach and re-stress things,” Brey said. “The key is, I think it’s the key in any foreign tour — but I got to coach Demetrius Jackson and Zach Auguste as starters in July. I did not have to wait until October. So I thought their progress was really sped up, feeling like, ‘Man, I’m a main guy.’ That really helped us get off to a good start. I think they’re essential.”“The team starts to establish their identity sooner,” Thompson said. “As a coach, you can start to figure out — freshmen coming in, I think Billy’s going to be able to do this — you find out sooner what they can do. Obviously, the cohesiveness. They become a team unit faster. The times we have gone, it’s been good years to follow. We’re going to Italy this summer.”Both Brey and Calipari hope that the rule will change in the future, allowing coaches to take their teams on foreign tours more frequently than once every four years. Brey believes that restriction will “go out the window” someday soon. Both coaches believe every two years would be better.“You can start to mold your group, build your chemistry and get guys confident in July, instead of waiting until October,” Brey said. It’s just so helpful. … Man, I’m a big believer in it.”GALLERY: CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS Other teams that took preseason trips and reached this year’s NCAA tournament include: Ohio State, Xavier, ​Cincinnati and Georgia State, Indiana and Mississippi. And UAB, a 14 seed that upset third-seeded Iowa State in the second round, went on a preseason trip to Spain. After the win, Blazers coach Jerod Haase credited the trip as building a successful foundation for the team.Often, it seems, the seeds for a special season are planted in a foreign land.Of the 36 power conference programs that have taken foreign tours in the past five years and responded to an inquiry by USA TODAY Sports, 20 won more games the season immediately following the trip than they did the previous season. Five teams posted the same win total, and 11 won fewer games (though in many cases, the drop-off was because of injuries and/or surprising pro departures). Two teams — Louisville in 2011-12, and Wisconsin last season — reached the Final Four the season immediately following their trips.Coaches plan foreign tours for a variety of reasons. By rule, they can go only once every four years. Most coaches like to schedule these trips for years they know they’ll have a young team, or a big freshman class, in order to expedite the players’ building of chemistry and also to familiarize players with that particular program’s system and its coaching staff’s expectations.last_img read more

West Ham give up on striker transfer, couldn’t match club’s demands

first_imgThat’s it. West Ham United have reportedly given up on signing FC Porto striker Moussa Marega. Even though a couple of Portuguese newspapers claim that today is a decisive day for the case, outlet Record says there’s no more chance for the transfer to happen.According to their report, West Ham have not shown capacity to afford the player’s €40m release clause which was demanded by Porto.The Hammers have even put some other options on the table, trying to pay for the deal on different dates, but the Dragons have closed the doors to that option.The difficulty imposed by Porto is what convinced West Ham to go for another target for the position.That’s why they were quick to work on a deal for Arsenal striker Lucas Perez, who’s joining the club for about €5.5m.Now the Portuguese media believe that Marega will not be returning to the Dragons’ squad so easily. He must convince the board that he regrets his actions when trying to force his way out to the Premier League.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comFind out where single guys are hanging out in Tung ChungDating.comUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

Pele asked to light Rio pyre, checks with sponsors

first_imgPele has been invited to light the Olympic pyre for the Rio Games on Friday but the Brazilian soccer great is checking with his sponsors to see if he is free to lead the torch ceremony in the Maracana stadium.“I have a contract that I am bound to fulfil,” Pele told Globo TV late on Tuesday, adding that he was consulting the U.S. company that holds the rights to his brand name whether he can take up the invitation from the Olympic organising committee.“As a Brazilian, I’d love to do it,” said the 75-year-old, who helped his country win the World Cup three times and would be launching the Games in the stadium where he scored his 1,000th goal in 1969.Pele later told reporters that International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach and the head of the Brazilian committee Carlos Arthur Nuzman had personally asked him to light the pyre and that he would have an answer on Thursday.He said he would have to cancel a trip organised by his sponsors.Pele, regarded as the greatest player of all time, played in four World Cups and is the only player to have won it three times: in 1958 in Sweden, when he was just 17, in 1962 in Chile and in 1970 in Mexico.last_img read more
