A300Capt's post about the United pilot got me thinking (again) about something to fallback on should I be put into the same situation. Going through MAPD at ASU, I'm forced to get a four year aviation degree. Fortunately though, It does leave me time to study something else. A few things that I have considered are substitute teaching, programming, and maybe something health-care related. Basically something that isn't very difficult to learn and isn't hard to keep up with. If anyone has any ideas I'd like to hear them.
