The aviocaptain takes all responsibility of the aircraft upon himself, evaluates its route, gives advice to his crew, reassures the passenger, reorganises his baggage and mood, he blesses births and unions while airborne, redeems controversies and feuds, checks the purity of the fuels and the quality of the menu, he makes sure that the climate on board is appropriate and that the wing holds up by applying the proper protocol.
He’s one of us, among us, but above us all and deserves our respect.

L’aviocapitano si assume la responsabilità dell’aeronave, ne valuta la rotta, consiglia l’equipaggio, rassicura il passeggere, gli riordina il bagaglio e il morale, benedice le nascite e le unioni in volo, redime controversie e faide, controlla la purezza dei carburanti e la qualità dei menù, si assicura che il clima sia appropriato e che l’ala regga applicando l’opportuno protocollo.
Egli è uno di noi altri, tra di noi, ma al di sopra di noi e si merita il nostro rispetto.
