"To Capt. / WestJet," the note, written on the back of a napkin reads, "The cockpit of airlier [sic] is no place for a woman. A woman being a mother is the most honor not as "captain" Proverbs 31 (Sorry not P.C.) P.S. I wish WestJet could tell me a fair lady is at the helm so I can book another flight! Were [sic] short mothers not pilots Westjet."
Captain Steacy responded on her Facebook page saying that if he was that offended he could have gotten off the plane as soon as she identified herself as Captain before takeoff. This opinion, while surprising to some, does illustrate that though we have taken great strides in terms of equality, there are still those who prefer to live in a pre-World War II construct of the world.
Captain Steacy is a 17 year veteran pilot... and yes she does have two children which makes her long successful career as a pilot all the more impressive.
