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.

Recorded on the 31st of August, 2020 On Episode 54 of Squawk Ident, Tomcats, Top Gun, & Recurrent Sim Rides,  we have much to cover. Since our last show a litany of events have filled each day with a rollercoaster of anxiety and emotional pitfalls. We will dive into what has transpired in our industry and how it has added to these stressful times. We also explain how it all occurred while I was in the middle of my recurrent training cycle, and what it all means for the future of the pilot profession. Also, joining us on today’s show RobD and Captain Roger help introduce a phenomenal pilot and more recently my sim partner. We discuss how his journey in aviation has allowed him to experience the trill of being an F14-Tomcat driver, a Top Gun graduate, a Cargo Operator Flight Engineer and Pilot, a corporate pilot, and currently a Legacy Airlines Captain on the A320F. He holds multiple type ratings on the A4 Skyhawk, F14 Tomcat, B-757/767, A-320, B-777, G-200, Falcon 2000, & 900EX.

Recorded on 5th of August, 2020 On today’s show, I am joined by Squawk Ident crew member and co-host RobD, who is taking a break from pouring money into his new yacht to join us today. 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. He shares his journey in aviation with us and explains the challenges in building your own aircraft.   Join RobD and I as we welcome to the show Mr. Jonathan Gruber. references: AI Systems, Inc - Redmond, OR Lancair Legacy website @Lancair_Legacy on Instagram Civil Air Patrol website Thank You for Listening!

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...
