Okay, folks, it’s serious question time.

Would you go up in someone’s private plane for a joyride?

This mom definitely isn’t comfortable.

Let’s see what she had to say…

AITA for not letting my 11 and 13 yo daughters fly on a private plane?

“My youngest daughter recently had her birthday and turned 11 years old.

As a birthday gift my brother and his partner wanted to fly the girls to Alpine, Wyoming, for hiking and to play in the river.

They own their own small plane, my brother’s husband was a marine pilot and flying is now his hobby.

The trip is a little less than an hour by plane, so this would be a day trip for them.

Ummm, no.

The problem is I just don’t trust this plane… it’s so small, only 5 people fit in it and that includes the pilot.

That means either myself or my husband could go and my husband has been trying to persuade me since he LOVES planes and he’s telling me how safe it is.

Now what?

I think he just wants to go as a treat to himself, and he told me I just don’t want to let them go because I’m controlling.

We got into an argument over it and he’s very upset that I won’t even consider it.

Does that make me an ******* to be worried about this?”

This one could go either way.

I’m sure her intentions are good.
