Recorded on August 4th, 2020 This is episode 51 of Squawk Ident, recorded from the mobile Av8r sound studios on the 14th floor of the Prince Waikiki Hotel on the island of Oahu. We are under Hawaii’s mandated limited airline crew isolation while recording this episode. I can't think of a better way to spend time in isolation than to produce the Squawk Ident Podcast with all of you. Today, I am joined by Captain Chris in the studio and my Squawk Ident Crew (Captain Roger and RobD) from across the Pacific via the magic of the inter webs. 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. Hood. All this and more on this the 51st episode of Squawk Ident. references: Viking News Flaps Up/ Gear Up (video) WARN letters, what are they?

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.

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?

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.

Recorded on 21st of May, 2020 On todays show, we will be discussing load factors and the outlook for pilots looking ahead to October 1st. The president doesn’t seem concerned about the aviation industry, should we be? Also, with the reduction of flights throughout the country, the 5% increase in load factor, according to the TSA’s report last week, has started to become evident with aircraft that are starting to become "uncomfortably almost full." We will also explore in the WTF segment face mask shaming, seriously…yes, seriously. There has also been some flight deck mask push back, why is that, we will discuss. And finally we will explain Distance Learning. To help me navigate these topics, I am honored to be joined by a group of aviators that I have bribed generously to be on today’s show. Did you guys get your Squawk Ident stimulus checks yet?

Recorded on the 2nd of April, 2020 On this episode of Squawk Ident, I am joined by my co-host RobD. Together we discuss what it has been like out on the flight line. We talk about how our schedules have been disappearing out from under us, how flights are going out empty, and how airports seem like they have been abandoned. We hear how Av8rTony got a call from his chief pilot informing him that one of his passengers tested positive for CoVid 19. We also discuss SAFOs, NOTAMS, DOT bailouts, FAA Medicals, and social distancing with family. And let us not forget Pickle Ball. references: SAFO - Safety Alert For Operators DOT Bailout - Investers.com  AA Gate Agent loss Slowing the Virus - nytimes.com   FAA medicals amendment Thank You for Listening!

Recorded on 17th of March, 2020 On this episode of Squawk Ident, I am joined by an aviation couple that have shared their journey in aviation together. I first met Jeri in 2017, when she was just getting back into the airline world after 13 years away from the profession. She and her husband Ty have been able to navigate the many downturns and celebrate great accomplishments in their careers all while raising a family. From sound engineering to space camp to civil air patrol and more, they both have been an inspiration to me for many years. Today, I was able to interview them. Their journeys have been filled with love and sacrifice. At a time when what we need more of is positivity and celebration, I am honored to share our discussion with all of you. ref: (click to link) Captain Roger Victor - The Acronym Song Wings Field, PA Aviation Challenge Space Camp Women In Aviation FAA LOSA program Thank You for Listening!
