Although the previous description is accurate most of the time, it is important to remember that Robbie Rangers can be any age or gender. In fact many of them are older men who are lost in their mid life crisis. Many of them have left their computer industry careers, or are using a GI bill to fulfill their pipe dream.
When conversing with a Robbie Ranger, he will often tell you that he flies the most difficult helicopter to fly and it's made him a better pilot.
Hot Chick: OH Wow thats so cool! I've never met a helicopter before!! So you guys get paid like a $100,000 a year right?
Lifeboat78: Yeah thats what my flight school told me, but I just love to fly so much that (HOT CHICK INTERRUPTS AGAIN)
Hot Chick: Umm, so you aren't actually getting paid?
Lifeboat78: Well not right now, but I'm going to fly to this safety seminar on Saturday and I have an empty seat...
Hot Chick: Oh, thats like so cool, but my friend just texted me soooooo yeah, I have to go. Later Robbie Ranger.
