061 Realities of Recovery

061 Realities of Recovery

2020-11-0502:24:49

Recorded on the 2nd of November, 2020 On today’s special episode of the Squawk Ident podcast, we are very grateful to have the opportunity to speak with an aviator who has navigated some rather challenging obstacles along his fantastic journey in aviation. His exceptional story tackles a topic that is often too uncomfortable for many pilots to even discuss. He shares with us how his disease nearly put an end to his aviation career and how his recovery, thanks to the HIMS program, saved his life. Hopefully, someone out there listening will hear about his journey and decide that it is time to take that first step and ask for help. Joining us from his home in Eagleville, Tennessee, is Mr. David W. references: MTSU website Skip Stewart  747-LCF HIMS website Fairchild 71 Thank You for Listening!

Recorded on the 26th of October, 2020 On todays show, I am so very fortunate to be joined by my magnificent Squawk Ident flight crew members, Rob D and Captain Roger. The three of us have been texting back and forth over the last few days because of a few aircraft accidents that have headlined aviation news. We aviators usually pay close attention when we hear of an aircraft issue. Not because we like to chase fire trucks, but more so because any incident that occurs on the flight line is an opportunity to improve upon our understanding and knowledge on the best way to tackle an inflight situation. We will also discuss what we have learned from these incidents and how Flight Deck Distractions can lead to some disastrous results. Plus, through some feedback from a loyal listener we will explore some aviation films to hit the silver screen.

Since our last show a litany of events have filled each day with a rollercoaster of anxiety and emotional pitfalls.

We are recording as breaking news has spread around the aviation community just hours ago that a group of Senate Republicans are potentially backing the extension of the CARES act for an additional 6 months with an additional $25 billion in payroll assistance for U.S. Airlines. We will discuss what this potentially means for airline crew here in the US. We also have the opportunity to speak with a phenomenal aviator, fabricator, and motorcycle gear head and racer who will join us from the AI Systems Inc. hanger in Redmond, Oregon, where he is currently taking a break from the build of his Lancair Legacy.

We discuss flight training in the King Air and the human factors involved with in-flight emergencies, we explain WARN letters and how many aviators have been affected by them, and RobD tells us about his recent weather related diversion into Ft.

Recorded on the 23rd of July, 2020 On today's episode, I am so very excited to sit down with a phenomenal aviator whom I first met a few years ago, while flying a 2 day sequence together. I can remember that I was intrigued the moment he told me about the rigors of his Team USA triathlon training schedule. He was preparing for an event that he would be participating in just days after our flight sequence together. He is an accomplished Legacy Airlines Captain, a retired Naval Commander and E-2 and ES3A pilot for the US Navy, and an award winning USA Triathlon Team Member. He is an SBR Sports Ambassador, an F2C Nutrition Ambassador, and a USA Triathlon Certified Coach. Today, I have the privilege in speaking with this amazing aviator about his fantastic journey, right here on the 50th episode of Squawk Ident. It is with the utmost privilege that I introduce to the show, Captain Kevin Elmore.

049 Vikings Take Flight

049 Vikings Take Flight

2020-07-2001:33:40

Recorded on 17th of July, 2020 On episode 49 of Squawk Ident Captain Roger and I have the honor of speaking with a pair of aviators that both have an impressive international footprint in aviation. They both started their aviation careers in Iceland and eventually came to America to build flight time in Cessnas and Pipers at a little flight school named Tailwind Flight Centre, LLC, in Chandler, Arizona.  Their journeys have since allowed them to build upon impressive resumes of flying positions around the world. They have flown with operators based in Austria, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, and Iceland. They share their accomplishments in aviation and what the future holds for them in the wake of this global pandemic with us. Join Captain Roger and me as we speak with some true Icelandic Vikings Sigurbjörn (Sibbi) Ragnarsson & Rúnar Ingi Ásgeirsson on this fantastic episode of Squawk Ident. reference: Euro Vison Song Contest  IMDb: Eurovison Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020)  Slátur  chapters: [04:10] Flying Vikings [07:50] Tailwind & Time Building [21:30] How JAA pilots licenses convert into FAA PPLs [42:20] Legacy Iceland and Furloughs [53:50] Hurtles to Overcome [1:01:30] Favorite Overnights [1:15:10] The Backup Plan [1:22:10] Slátur!

Recorded on the 13th of July, 2020 On Episode 48 of Squawk Ident, I am joined in the mobile Av8r Studio on the 7th floor of the Georgetown - Marriott Hotel in Washington D.C. by an aviator that is sure to impress. His four plus decade journey in aviation started out with a ride on a cross country flight at the age of 10, where he joined his father on one of his flight lessons. From airport bum, to mechanic's helper, and later A&P and Airline Line Pilot, his journey is filled with stories that focus on friendships, loyalty, and opportunity.  His leadership and experience has been a true inspiration to learn from.  Having the opportunity to fly with Captain Dave is an experience that I am very grateful for. His journey in aviation is sure to inspire.  references:  144th Fighter Wing - Air National Guard West Air Airlines EMB-110 Bandeirantes  Jetstream 31/41 Reno Air Episode 48 chapters: [03:00] - Introducing Captain David LeTourneau  [05:25] - CRM with Dave  [08:42] - Dave's First Flight  [15:30] - Test Pilot [20:00] - Loyalty [25:00] - Home of the 144th [33:05] - Scabs?

047 Airline Apocalypse

047 Airline Apocalypse

2020-07-0801:28:09

Recorded on 6th July, 2020 On episode 47 of Squawk Ident, Captain Roger, RobD, and I discuss our flying schedules, events from the flight line, and getting in a workout here and there to fight off the isolation weight gain.  We also dive into how diet and nutrition is a crucial part of any aviator's ability to perform. Is eating a safety to flight issue? We argue Yes, it is. We discuss long lines at airport food courts, Av8rTony's upcoming recurrent training, the middle seat argument, and the alleged Airline Apocalypse.   reference:  US Senator Plans To Introduce A Bill Banning The Sale Of Middle Seats - SimpleFlying article The Coming Apocalypse for U.S. Airline Labor - Skift.com article Episode 47 chapters: [03:23] From the Flight Line Intros [12:45] Fighting Isolation Weight Gain [23:01] Back to Back trip sequences, On the Run, & Off the Plate [25:55] Kelly's Roast Beef, Food Courts, and Long Lines [29:10] Meal Breaks and Safety to Flight Issues [44:09] Recurrent Training Part 91 vs. Part 121 [57:35] Long A$$ Lines, Why?

These pilots are good examples of confirmation bias. The chat about Covid shows they don't see morbidity as an issue, thinking infection rates not important, without recognising long Covid.

The chat is great. Loving the background on piloting and US industry situ. one small comment - vaccine re Covid will hopefully be released when proven safe - if done before suitable result data (as Trump trying to do) high risk of impact not just on take-up of this vaccine bit also grow the wider antivax movement. it's not bureaucracy that means it takes time to release meds - it's the issue of safety. See Boeing 737max for details...
