Bitching Betty is a slang term used by military pilots and aircrew when referring to the overly calm female voice used by the aircraft warning systems. Depending what Betty has to tell you it can cause an adverse reaction in the cockpit…even with Marines! Bitching Betty doesn’t discriminate though, and can cause panic in Air Force, Navy and even some Army pilots.
All branches of the U.S. military have recently been faced with a pilot shortage, partially because of competition with commercial airlines and the other services. Bonuses in the USN, USA, USAF, and USMC vary, but the Corps offers qualified pilots up to $200,000 bonuses depending on their years in service and what they fly.
