    A day in the life of an airline pilot

    Carole is an aeroplane pilot. She usually works during the week and has weekends off, but she sometimes works Saturdays or Sundays. When Carol has to work, her day usually starts very early in the morning. She wakes up at 4 a.m. and gets ready for work. She has a shower and gets dressed. She wears a uniform. At 4.30, Carole has cereal with milk and drinks a large coffee. After that, she packs her flight bag for the day.

    At 5 o’clock, she gets in her car and drives to the airport. Before the flight, she meets the rest of her crew. The first officer helps her fly the plane and the cabin crew look after the passengers during the flight. They talk about the weather while they get on board the plane all together.

    During the flight, the cabin crew give food and drinks to the passengers. Carole talks to the passengers. She gives them some information about the flight. She tells them how long the flight is, how fast they fly and how high they are. When they land at their destination, Carole says goodbye to the passengers and meets her crew to check if everything is OK. After work, Carol drives home.

    Carol arrives home at 5 pm. At home, she does yoga for 30 minutes to relax. Then, she cooks some food and has dinner at 7 pm. After dinner, she checks her emails for 45 minutes. Flying a plane is very tiring and Carol goes to bed very early, at 9 pm. Sometimes, she reads a book for one hour before sleeping.
