So, there we have it. The unemployed professional pilots' "Final solution". Witness the Appointments Wanted section (Flight International, 19-25 March). Some troubled and desperate soul (aren't we all) offers self and 737 rating for free. What hope is there for any of us?

In light of recent events and the way the job market is now, some of us think that we will not work again in aviation, but should the opportunity occur here is one monkey that will not work for anything less than peanuts.
