Swissport International Ltd., which provides ground services at Logan Airport, has an ad on Craigslist for people looking for jobs de-icing airplanes in cold weather.
Headlined "Hardcore Gamer? We may have a job for you at Boson [sic] Logan Airport," the ad says de-icing airplanes requires the same skills as mastering a video game:
As a professional deicer, you will be deicing aircraft with state of the art equipment to insure safe flight for our customers and theirs. In this role you will sit in a pod perched high above airplanes, sit in front of a control panel, and, in simple terms, use a joy stick to spray the deicing fluid onto the airplanes.
Two possible problems for actual hard-core gamers: The job requires you to get up in a bucket in some of the coldest weather winter can throw at you and it requires you to be able to lift 70 pounds. But, it does pay $15 an hour.
