Female WestJet Pilot Receives Sexist Note From Passenger

| by Emily Smith

A female WestJet pilot received a sexist note from a male passenger this weekend after a flight from Victoria to Calgary.

Pilot Carey Steacy had just finished her trip when a member of the cleaning crew brought her the note written on a napkin. It was written by a David in seat 12 E.

“The cockpit of an airline is no place for woman,” the note read. “A woman being a mother is the most honor.”

The note went on to insist that the country needs more mothers, not pilots.

Steacy, who has 17 years of flying experience, posted the note to Facebook and received mass amounts of support.

“You were more than welcome to deplane when you heard I was a ‘fair lady’. You have that right,” Steacy wrote. “Funny, we all, us humans, have the same rights in this great free country of ours.”

WestJet issued a statement noting that the company is proud of their pilots’ professionalism and expertise, and disappointed to see the note.
