"As well. So using this approach when you're breaking down a problem is going to make it much easier for you to package and deliver your story. I'm going to pass it over to Amy right now to jump into how to do that successfully. Awesome. Thanks, Ellie. So now that you've done your research and analysis to clearly define the who, the what and the why in terms of the problem you're trying to solve for. Now it's time to start thinking about how you can package all this content so that it's ready to share with others. If you've done the work to have a solid understanding of the opportunity you're solving for and understanding why it's important, then the delivery of the story is going to be much easier. So let's talk about how you can prepare for evangelizing your story. Now before you dive right into making a PowerPoint or a really in depth presentation, start by taking a moment to make sure that you can clearly articulate the basics of your storyline with little supporting materials. Here are some practical tips to make sure that you know your story. First, you can start by writing a rough outline and just plain words. When Ellie and I were actually starting to work on this webinar together, we started with just a basic word Doc that you see on the screen here. And just may notes as we made our story outline and talked about our narrative over the phone. And we started this way because we wanted to make sure that we really aligned on the central message we wanted to communicate and got the foundation set for this storytelling experience. Another easy way to outline your story is just using sticky notes. So you can create an outline putting major points or different sections on each sticky note. And then easily move them around to have your story make more sense. At this stage, it's most important to focus on getting the content and the message right versus spending a lot of time and energy on making the perfect slides or polished visuals. Another great tip is just to sit down with a coworker outside of your working team and share your story. Although they might not have all the background on your customer group or your product space, they should still be able to grab to grasp the what and the who and the why. And let them ask you questions. This could really help highlight areas that you either have considered or areas where you need to adjust your storyline to make more sense. I always like to tell my team to use what I call the Linda test. Linda is our chief technology officer. And if you were to run into her virtually now, and she asked what you were working on, would you be able to articulate the what and the why in just a couple of sentences? So if you find yourself struggling to articulate your story in a more informal setting like that without reading off of slides or having notes in front of you, that's probably an indication that you need to do a little bit more homework and spend some more time really knowing your story. Remember, you are an advocate for your customers and what they need. So if you're struggling to tell others your story, clearly, and enthusiastically, it's going to be a really tough sell to get others on board. Now, I want to take a brief moment to circle back to a point that Ali mentioned earlier. Depending on what point you are in the product life cycle, you may have a really thorough understanding of the customer problem you're trying to solve, but you might not have the solution yet. And that's totally okay. You still might find yourself in situations where you need to share your story before that solutioning phase has taken place. And it's important for those conversations to go well. Try to resist the urge to start pitching solutions too early. And instead, focus more on framing the problem and talking about what a successful solution would achieve and how the team will move into the solutioning phase. Again, it's only human nature that we want to fix everything and have solutions for every problem right away. But as PMs, our job is not necessarily to come up with all the answers and solutions to everything. Our job is to make sure that we can identify and articulate the right customer problems to solve. And then mobilize our teams to help drive the overall solutions. So once you feel like you've got your story down, you should identify the key players that need to hear your story. Now, based on your organization, there may be a standard process or forum for p.m. to socialize their customer problems or opportunities statements. But for others, the path forward may not be as clear and that's okay. If that's the case, you can ask yourself or your manager, these basic questions. First, who do I need to get buy in or approval from in order to move this idea forward? Another good question to ask is, who is going to be part of the core working team to help drive the solution and execution? How can I set them up for success? The answers to these questions will help you understand who needs to be in the audience when you share your story. When preparing for these conversations, do your homework and know your audience. This will help you figure out which parts of your story may be more or less emphasis. Knowing your audience can help you anticipate their questions and proactively address them upfront. Some good questions to ask about your audience include things like, what are they already know about what I'm going to tell them? How does my story align with their goals or objectives? Well, concerns might they have. There's nothing worse than being in a meeting or when you're presenting and you can tell that someone in the audience is completely unengaged. Their mind is somewhere else or worse yet they're getting frustrated by what you're saying or you can tell that they really disagree with what you're saying. And so doing your homework and tailoring your pitch based on who's in the audience can really help avoid those not so fun situations. All organizations and teams are different, but based on my personal experience, if you're presenting to higher level leadership, they tend to think more big picture and want to understand how your product aligns with the overall company goals or objectives. And they may not need to understand every single detail of your product or experience. On the other hand, if your audience consists more of your core working team, so engineers, testers, you access, they'll probably need a little bit more detail to understand what their solution for and what it needs to achieve. And you can probably skip more of the background information since they're already very familiar with your product. Another group to consider is external stakeholders. So external to your working team, another department, maybe outside of your company. They typically need a little bit more background to get grounded in your product strategy, what is current states, and they may have very different goals from you. So for this group, it's very important to make sure you try to relate your goals to theirs in some way. Next, you can think about what's supporting materials will help you deliver your story. Again, this may depend on your organization, but here are some common materials that PMs use to help tell a story. Something like a product memo is usually less visual, has a lot of details in it. And that's meant to be stunt as a pre read before a meeting. And then it's kind of referenced as you meet with a group. Slides, like we're using today can be helpful, but with slides, you always want to remember that less is more. Avoid complicated data visualizations and long paragraphs of text because it's really hard for people to listen and read at the same time. You can also consider mediums like prototypes, demos, videos, and those may be appropriate depending on the setting and how they're going to be used. But whatever medium you choose, it's important to not lose track of the basics of this stuff. So remember some of the key sections that Ellie outlined earlier and making sure that those guide your pitch. So thinking about starting with the customer and working backwards, who are you trying to solve for what is the problem? What is the opportunity? And then that letters up to more of the solutioning. These are the key questions you want to make sure that you answer as you're telling your story. So now you have your story. You know your audience and you've prepped any supporting materials. That means it's story time. If you get nervous presenting, just remind yourself that you are the expert in the room. And you've just spent a great deal of time analyzing researching your customer and your story and you have all the supporting data you need to tell that story effectively. It's okay if there's people in the room who have questions or may not agree, you've done the homework to either defend your stance or form an opinion on other ideas that may get brought up. It's also okay if you don't know the answer to every question during your research and analysis, you have probably identified other subject matter experts who will be working side by side with you. And you should feel comfortable calling on those on those folks to add their expertise or let the audience know that you'll bring the questions back to the team. Most importantly, just be confident and let your passion and excitement come through. People are usually more likely to listen to someone who really believes in what they're talking about. So we've walked through a lot of different techniques and tips to help tell great stories, but we love to hear from you. So what has worked for you in the past? What great storytelling experiences have you been a part of either as the storyteller or maybe someone in the audience? Let us know what stood out for you. I'm sure there's a lot of other great techniques that we haven't had time to cover today. So feel free to share your ideas in the comments below. Also, at this point in the webinar, you may be feeling like what we covered is overwhelming or we'll take too much time. And you may be wondering, is it all worth it? Yes. It's worth it. The truth is that it is a lot of work, but it becomes second nature when you train your mind to focus on the problem first. And it's also worth noting that based on our experience, spending the necessary time upfront, framing your problem and the story can make the design and the delivery of the solution, move much more efficiently. And finally, don't feel like you need to follow every single step that we've covered here today. This was meant to arm you with various tools that you can keep in your toolbox and apply them where it makes sense. So as we wrap up our story today, we'd like to leave you with a few takeaways. So I'm going to kick it back over to Ellie. Thanks, Amy. I'm about to read straight off of slides, which I'm sure is not recommended and delivery, but hopefully helpful when it comes to key takeaways. So number one, remember that storytelling is critical at every point in the product life cycle. Number two, while it might be tempting to solution right away, you always need to start with your customer and the problem and work backwards. Number three, it's okay to tell a story that you don't know the ending to just yet. That's part of developing the problem statement. Number four, different people need different parts of the story to be told to them. Be sure to tell your tailor your message to the audience. And finally, number 5, this may all seem like a lot of work, but it's worth it in the end. The prep work you do will lead to conviction in your solution and ultimately a really.

"Allow you to one better advocate for your customer. Two, it'll help you earn trust with leadership and your stakeholders and Brie, it'll accelerate your adoption from the end users. Stories are powerful tools because they engage your audience. Humans make decisions based on emotions. As much as we all want to think that we're rational people that are driven only by logic and data, emotions drive much of the decisions that we make. And while data is going to be key and telling your story, the art of constructing the narrative will be just as important. Stories also streamline information. As a p.m., you're going to spend a ton of time researching your customers problems. And determining what is most important to self, as well as how to solve them. Well, it's incredibly important that you do a really good job at this. It's also equally important that you distill this information down. Into an easy to understand package for your audience. Depending on who you're telling your story to chances are, they don't need to understand the sausage making. They just want to understand why the option that you've chosen is the best solution for your customers. Finally, stories can be repurposed. This may all seem like a lot of work, but we're about to go through here. But the best storytellers can create a narrative and use it for many different purposes. Done correctly, these approaches are actually going to save you time. And ensure that there's consistent messaging across your stakeholders and for your solution. Now that now we're going to jump into just one approach that I have for developing content that we found to be successful. So if there was ever a quote to describe product management, it's this one from Einstein. If I had an hour to spend to solve a problem, I'd spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about the solution. As a p.m..

Amazon senior product manager Ellie Newell in united senior product manager Amy Rohan are here to share their stories of experience so you can better advocate for your customers and get to solving the right problems. Hi, everyone. I'm Ellie. And I'm Amy. We want to welcome you guys today to the product school's webinar on product managers and the art of storytelling. So Amy and I have actually been friends since high school and we both been in product management, the majority of our careers. I'm a senior product manager at Amazon and Amy's senior product manager at United. We're really excited to share with you guys a little bit more about our experiences today. So I have about ten years of experience in the digital space and most of that has been in ad tech primarily focused on internal tools, external tools, some API integrations, social and content platforms, and attribution solutions. For the last couple of years, I've been working on video solutions for Amazon's retail space. And now I'm working on internal tools for Amazon associates. Amy? Thanks, Ellie, and hello, everyone. Thanks for joining us today to share a little bit about me. I'm also a senior product manager with just about ten years of experience. I've been lucky to spend my career at two great companies. I started out at discover card focused on the mobile app. And during my time there, I branched out to a few other product roles supporting various parts of the business. And then about three years ago, I decided to switch industries and I moved to United Airlines where I currently work as a product manager responsible for the digital account experience. So now that you know a little bit about us, let's talk about storytelling and what we're going to be covering today. Our material can be broken down into three main sections. We're going to start by talking about the value of storytelling and why it's an important skill for product managers. And we're going to talk about how to develop the content for a good story. And the last piece we'll cover is how to take that story and effectively share it with others. Our hope is that you leave today's discussion with some new techniques and a better understanding of how you can use storytelling to be a more effective product manager. And with that, I'm going to hand it over to Ellie to jump right in. Thanks, Amy. Before we dive too far in, I decided to give everyone a chance that this recording will be available on the product schools, LinkedIn after this event. So if you want to go back to any of these sections, you'll be able to do so then. All right. So we'll get started today by talking about why storytelling is so important as a product manager. So I don't think it's an over exaggeration to say that storytelling is critical at every point in the product life cycle. It's a p.m.'s job to advocate for their customer and to ensure that the rest of the organization understands why you're focusing on this problem versus the hundreds of other problems that are plaguing your customers..

"I'd like to talk about United Airlines and a new policy that the airline is instituting of training as pilots. More women and more persons of color. Now, I guess in these depressing days of today you should be glad that they aren't adding all kinds of other groups. We're going to try to make sure that there are more transpile and so on. There seem to be limiting it to women and persons of color. Let me say a few things about united. Debbie and I fly on united all the time. I used to be delta medallion member and that was when I lived in California. And I mainly took Delta flights. But since I moved to Texas, I'm now a united one K member because I fly a lot. And it's really cool. Very often I'll say often that I'm on the airline and with Debbie, one of the pilots will come up to me or stewardesses or stewards will come up to me and they'll be like, wow, we really like what you have to say. And they usually say this and kind of Soto bode kind of a low voice. Why? Because they know that united is kind of woke as an airline, but there is a strong movement of conservatives in united. And apparently there's even a kind of patriotic group that has been formed inside of united and it's kind of funny. They have little signals that they can make to each other. So they know that they're all members of the group. I guess sort of like gay signaling in the old

"I think there's actually a more dangerous virus than the Chinese coronavirus out there. The media, that's pretty good. I gotta say. It's hard to disagree with that. It's the virus, and there's a lot of different words to describe it. Woke ism, diversity equity inclusion, critical race theory. And it's everywhere. At Columbia University, they have black only graduation ceremonies. At western Washington University, they have black only dormitories. United Airlines is now announcing that 50% of all the new pilots they're going to hire are going to be black pilots. I don't know about you. I don't care about the color of the skin of my pilot. I hope he can or she can land the plane when they need to land the plane.

United Airlines Pilot Placed on Unpaid Leave After Being Granted Exemption From Vaccine Mandate

"I am going to be joined in this segment by captain sherry walker and captain Dave Morgan of airline employees for health freedom. They happen to be United Airlines pilots, and they are pretty good at what they do. 7 87 international 7 67, these guys are experts. They keep us safe. They make the skies friendly. They get us from point a to point B and now they are going to tell us their story about their experience with these vax mandates that have been spreading across the country. There is news today that osha has now at least temporarily sidelined this plan of vax mandates, pending circuit court, judgments that have fully put a stop to it, at least for the time being. So we're going to keep monitoring that. Dave Morgan, thank you so much for joining us, captain sherry walker. Thank you so much for joining us. Tell us a little bit about what you guys have been going through the floor is yours. I've got some tape, by the way, that we can play at some point in the segment of the CEO of United. I know you're not speaking on behalf of United here, but I do have, I think it's partner to what we're discussing. So I do want to get to that, but tell us what you've been going through. Tell us a little bit about your background. Are you guys getting paid right now? I went on unpaid leave a week ago on Friday. I'm a pilot for United Airlines. I was hired in continental airlines in 1998, so I've been here 23 and a half years. We've spent many years out in the island of Guam for Micronesia and three years ago, just before the pandemic, we moved from Guam to the great state of Arizona, and I'm on a fly 7 87 out of San Francisco. Pandemic came down the pipe and we pressed on. We are the front lines that we're willing to do whatever it took. What we are team of many, many people, and I'm just representing I'm a voice representing thousands who I wish also could have this opportunity to speak. But we work through this thing. And with a really can do cooperative spirit of let's get through this because I was also a pilot during 9 11. I remember that vividly. We worked through that. And then suddenly, on the back side of this, here comes this vaccine mandate. And those of us who pressed on and made the wheels turn airplanes fly, the people who were able to fly for point a to we were there to get them there. And all of a sudden, Scott Kirby says, we're not safe anymore. You're done. So as of last Friday, I've been placed on unpaid leave, and they've basically cut my cord. I have no insurance, no benefits. I can't retire. I have no access to anything. They have shut me down and to make it worse. I can't pass travel. I can't even jump seat on other airline jump seats. So I'm scrambling right now to see what I'm going to do with insurance. I have three boys, 12, 16 and

"Segregation was wrong in the 1950s. And segregating children in the Georgia public schools, which is what's happening right now is wrong again. And it goes even further than that. Whether it's not just graduation ceremonies, it's not just dormitories, but also I'll give you another example. United Airlines has come out and they have said that they are going to be hiring pilots based primarily on based on the color of someone's skin. Now, I don't know about you. When I'm flying in an airplane, I couldn't care less about the skin color of the pilot. I care can you land the plane? And this emphasis on diversity for diversity's sake comes with a price. And when you elevate diversity over competency to try and fit some sort of esoteric political agenda, then there will be a price to pay

Biden Announces Vaccine Plan for Employers

"Vaccine requirements just announced by president biden are not out of the blue. They're not even the first ones we had for. Covert nineteen as new york times notes today. We've already got experience with large employers starting to require vaccination at among other things. But we've learned from that experience so far. Is that the requirements work. They succeed at their goal of getting more people to get the shot last month. For example the pentagon announced that active duty military personnel would have to get vaccinated that has just been announced so far. They haven't hit a deadline for it yet. But already the proportion of active duty personnel. Who had the shot has gone from. Seventy six percent to eighty three percent. Same deal with the. Va seven weeks ago. The va told its frontline. Health workers they had to get the shot since then the number of va frontline workers who've been vaccinated has gone from seventy seven percent up to eighty two percent and still rising same deal at private sector employers like united airlines for example employees. There were told last month that they'd have until october. Twenty fifth to get vaccinated. Well s- only september tenth. Now there's still plenty of time before that deadline hits but already just since laying out that eventual requirement the majority of united airlines workers who weren't vaccinated before that announcement have since become vaccinated. We know it works and we've had plenty of other vaccine requirements throughout our history. That have also worked. But as the president indicated today we also know that republican governors and republican elected officials will sue and try to stop these new policies as if they're totally novel as if this is some brand new idea. The united states supreme court has ruled multiple times going back more than a century that it is not unconstitutional to require americans to get a vaccine. Even if a person doesn't want to in the context of a serious public health threat you can be required to be vaccinated. They ruled that way back in one thousand nine five in the context of mandatory smallpox vaccine requirement in massachusetts. They ruled that way in nineteen twenty two in the context of vaccines being required of students if they wanted to attend

"And marching orders from management. When we got off the plane luvell. I think there was one flight attendant. I'm now remembering. She didn't say anything. Fancy just said sorry and you could tell on her face that maybe that's not what she was allowed to say or not supposed to say. Urban told don't comment on the situation but you could tell she was upset. She was upset at how things were handled. So yeah even if it if it's not super elaborate and it doesn't necessarily six the issue it's still can communicate care. If that wasn't wild enough it was what occurred afterwards that continued to send shockwaves to the rest of the world that warrant their initially united airline. Ceo oscar muniz issued sort of damage. Control statement that day explaining the situation of an unwieldy passenger placing the blame on doctor dow however after the video surfaced all over. The news. Muniz issued a public statement. The very next day he was quoted saying this is an upsetting event to all of us here united. I apologize for having to re accommodate these customers. What did he just allude to dragging him off. Unconsciously as re accommodating it sparked a fury with many accusing united of being completely tone deaf with his carefully chosen. Words videos were circulated and shared over eighty seven thousand times and viewed by over six point. Eight million people. Many threatening to boycott united some speculated and questioned whether this would have escalated this far had doctor dow nop an asian united airline stock fell almost four percent amid the backlash and the company's market value took a nosedive by one billion dollars. It was such a moment of ridicule that others joined in with comical criticism like emirates airline who posted fly the friendly skies with the real airline and quote. It wasn't until two days later when muniz came corrected with a more appropriate response in which he then addressed the situation with more empathy. This time saying are continued to be disturbed by what happened on this flight. And i deeply apologize to the customer forcibly removed and all the customers aboard no one should ever be mistreated this way but by then the response seem disingenuous. Sloppy to say the least issuing three apologies. Two days in a row seemingly very unrefined and disorganized coming from one of the largest companies in the world. So what could united airlines have done better in response to this crisis. Well for starters it seems that having the ability to quickly shift into crisis mode would have included away to immediately address or even acknowledge the collective trauma that passengers witness on the tarmac. As emily had anticipated during that flight and then following the incident having a clear consistent thoughtful message that number one admitted the mishandling of the situation number two included a thoughtful plan on how to rectify that going forward for doctor dow for his fellow passengers and for those who are horrified and triggered by what had occurred because what people want most especially in this case of mistreatment of a human being is leadership and recognition. That something like this will never have to occur again. How can a business succeed in planning for crisis when things don't go as planned. What is the question that people in service based organizations should be asking themselves in a case like this when people get upset when a customer gets upset or even you as the person working for a company or organization when emotions are getting high. How deescalate that situation to where it doesn't always blow up with somebody getting drug off a plane. How do you de-escalate dad and still be good at your job and serve people well. The incident that occurred on flight thirty four eleven many may have forgotton but for others. It struck a chord for me. Personally there is never a time. When i see the united airlines logo. Where i don't think about what occurred with doctor dow if nothing more the past several years have taught us how fragile situations can be how quickly escalations can arise and though more efforts are being made in training nothing is ever hundred percents as it relates to crisis communications and i use the term loosely as every situation requires thoughtful and tailored planning on a general basis. The three main rules of thumb. Our plan ahead respond quickly and be transparent. You don't have to over share or make excuses. But admitting to the mistake and assuring the mistake won't be repeated is pretty powerful bomb and he's always have your organization's ethical compass drive that plan. United airlines was proof that when it comes to a crisis plan. It's probably not wise to fly by the seat of your pants special.

"In thirty four episodes of the great fail. We've spent most of our time covering the epic meltdown and scandals that have brought entire companies to their knees. But today i wanna look at a situational. Great failed though. It remains an iconic company. The details of united airlines brutal actions had me floored when the incident on flight. Thirty four eleven occurred over four years ago because crisis management is something that many companies will face in their lifetime being adept at handling it gracefully as well as grace under fire is a skill set. That requires proper planning intriguing. It seems like a no brainer. That companies would have some sort of plan of action against crisis because reputation is directly tied into a brand value. But what's crazy. Is that seventy percent of executives will face a corporate crisis and studies still show today. One in four companies doesn't even have an adequate crisis communication plan twenty five percent of companies. Don't even discuss how to meaningfully deal with crisis which could be a death knell to accompany at any stage of their lifetime. Some communicators and executives have admitted that although many of them have a crisis strategy drafted. They're only minimally confident. In being able to actually manage it effectively and united airlines seemed to have fallen into that bucket on april ninth. Two thousand and seventeen. Here's how that day unfolded that sunday evening. All the passengers of united airlines flight thirty four eleven were fully buckled and minutes away from taking off. When four united employees arrived at the gate they needed to board the aircraft as they were due to work on another leg of the trick. An announcement was made that they needed to bump for passengers off the plane at first. No one responded so the flight attendant us some concessions to entice offer a four hundred dollar voucher hotels day and another seat on the flight the next day. no takers. Then they came back with eight hundred dollars and still. There were volunteers. They waited some more. And that's when a united manager came aboard to inform everyone that they would now randomly select four passengers to be removed. Dr david dow and his wife were two of those that were handpicked to leave the plane. But when doctor dow found out that the next flight wouldn't be until the day after he refused saying that he needed to see patients the next day so there was some commotion and aviation security was called in to deal with the situation and that's when things went from bad to worse in a matter of seconds. Emily powell who was seated next doctor dow on the plane witnessed the entire ordeal and describes here the initial moments when he's got involved Air marshal in david is still buckled. So there's a little bit of a jerking motion that happens. It's almost like if you've ever taken a toddler out of a car seat and you realize oh they're still trapped in around their waste and so it's just kind of a little tug two or three times but it was a lot more. Mileage is trying to get a child out of a car seat so it was about to hard jerk from the air marshal to david. Who's sitting buckled in seat. And then i don't know if he ever just like made the quick most unbuckled or got ripped out but in the process those polling out from all the way to window seat now. I'll hit his chin or his lip and was bleeding and it just continued to bully down his his shirt and so now he's lying on his back. Doctor dow sustained injuries to his head and his mouth. His face was cut and two of his teeth were knocked out. His lawyer would later say that. The injuries required reconstructive surgery. Another blow this time against an palm rest knocked him. Unconscious dow was then dragged down. The aisle by the arms and out of the plane pass row after row of onlookers causing distress amongst passengers. That moment when david being drug off there's a lot more comments from other passengers of all my guys like no he's bleeding and a little bit more of like vocalizing what we're all feeling. This is really uncomfortable. You don't treat people that way. Why are you doing this more of those kind of comments and there's a few people that were crying and just kind of just in shock. It was a startling scene and hard to digest and unsettling for many others took to their phone to record what they were witnessing to post on their social media feet and is laying on his back and being pulled by hand by the air marshal down the aisle drug out with his feet hanging. It almost looked like this is something you would see in a cartoon of somebody being drug off a plane like this and then you realize these are employees. This is somebody who's a law enforcement point people out like this so again just a little bit of feeling of shock like oh it escalated that quickly to where we're not willing to negotiate with anybody else to give up there seat. Why does it have to be this man. And his wife. Essentially videos from twitter and instagram trickled into.

Some communicators and executives have admitted that although many of them have a crisis strategy drafted, their only minimally confident in being able to actually manage it effectively and United Airlines seem to have fallen into that bucket on April 9th, 2017. Here's how that day unfolded. That Sunday evening, all the passengers of United Airlines flight 34 11 were fully buckled and minutes away from taking off. When four united employees arrived at the gate, they needed to board the aircraft as they were due to work on another leg of the trip. An announcement was made that they needed to bump four passengers off the plane. At first, no one responded. So the flight attendant used some concessions to entice an offer. A $400 voucher, a hotel stay, and another seat on the flight the next day. No takers. Then they came back with $800. And still, there were no volunteers. They waited some more, and that's when a united manager came aboard to inform everyone that they would now randomly select four passengers to be removed. Doctor David Dow and his wife were two of those that were hand picked to leave the plane. But when doctor Dow found out that the next flight wouldn't be until the day after, he refused, saying that he needed to see patients the next day. So there was some commotion and aviation security was called in to deal with the situation, and that's when things went from bad to worse in a matter of seconds. Emily Powell, who was seated next to doctor Dow on the plane, witnessed the entire ordeal and describes here the initial moments when authorities got involved. The air marshal came up and David is still buckled, so there's a little bit of a jerking motion that happens. It's almost like if you've ever taken a toddler out of a car seat and you realize, oh, there's still strapped in around their waist. And so it's just kind of a little tug, two or three times, but it was a lot more mileage than trying to get a child out of a car seat. So it was about two hard jerks from the air marshal to David, who's sitting buckled in his seat, and then I don't know if he ever just made the quick motion and unbuckled or got ripped out, but in the process of pulling him out from all the way to window seat to now the aisle, he hit his chin or his lips and was bleeding and it just continued to bleed down his shirt and so now he's lying on his back. Doctor Dow sustains injuries to his head and his mouth. His face was cut and two of his teeth were knocked out. His lawyer would later say that the injuries required reconstructive surgery. Another blow, this time against an armrest, knocked him unconscious. Dow was then dragged down the aisle by the arms, and out of the plane passed row after row of onlookers, causing distress amongst passengers. So at that moment, when David is being drug off, there's a lot more comments from other passengers of, oh my God, no, he's bleeding and a little bit more of like vocalizing what we're all feeling of. This is really uncomfortable. You don't treat people that way. Why are you doing this? More of those kind of comments and there's a few people that were crying and just kind of just in shock. It was a startling scene and hard to digest. An unsettling for many. Others took to their phone to record what they were witnessing to post on their social media feed. And being pulled by his hands by the air marshal down the aisle. Drug out with his feet hanging. It almost looked like this is something you would see in a cartoon. Of somebody being drug off a plane like this. And then you realize, these are employees, this is somebody who's a law enforcement and he's pulling people out like this. So again, just a little bit of feeling of shock of like, oh, it escalated that quickly to where we're not willing to negotiate with anybody else to give up their seat. Why does it have to be this man and his wife essentially? Videos from Twitter and Instagram trickled into the media showing the doctor's body, limp, bloody shirt, halfway up his torso, glasses, lopsided on his face. At the same time, all the passengers were ordered to deplane in order for the crew to clean up the blood and bodily fluids. An hour later, they were back in their seats. So once we got back on the plane, it's super stoic. It's super somber. The flight attendants don't say a word, and the four seats that are now empty are taken by united airline employees, which probably was the original thing that they were trying to do anyway. They need to get their employees to a certain airport, so they had to put them on that plane, which I think they would reserve the right to do anyway, that they can do that, but it just feels like a cheap shot considering everything that happened. And somebody had to get hurt because of it. Emily waited, probably like many other passengers. For something, some sort of consolation or comfort or even acknowledgment, but that never came. The lack of response was so piercing, it hung over the flights like a dark cloud. Once we got back on the plane, I think the pilot said a few just standard things of getting things up in the air and different safety precautions, but there was no apology from any representative. There was no apology or just some type of soothing comment that could have been helpful. I think for the rest of the passengers on the plane, from anyone. I feel like if I'm a flight attendant and I'm trying to serve these people on this plane, I don't want things to be tense. So what can I say to help repair the relationship? None of those things happen. There was no effort, really, and everything was very cold, very stoic, and it could have been that these united employees are also following orders of don't talk to anybody. Don't make a comment about what just happened. But it seemed like this could be a great time for somebody to apologize and to make it up to the other people who.

Are you still excited about outlook in this career Everything that you've seen would still recommend people to go after it full. Go and make a career of it i would. I would definitely continue to recommended. is it is definitely had its bumps in the roads in road to say the least it of obstacles that Not just saw at all of us have had to overcome to get to where we are where. We're gonna go but i would. I would highly recommended in. I say that to those that i do check rides for that are curious about is not all of them. Know that i'm in airline pilot as well when they go a check ride but some of them do and they'll ask me and that's my answer is without a doubt i wouldn't i. I wouldn't do anything. I don't know what else i would do. But yeah you're gonna have. You're gonna have setbacks. It doesn't matter you're going to have some bumps in the road but you gotta keep pressing on because it's a. It's a great career a lot of fun anyone's listening to this right now. And they are northeast. Ohio or hieaux and general or pennsylvania. They wanna make the trip out to northeast ohio work. Can they go to sign up to take check with you. Actually justin because i do check runs all over the place but they can go to my website pilot dot com and i have a online scheduling feature. There is they can Can check reschedule. They can actually book the appointment in when the team that gives them all details as well as it kicks narrow cross country and wink balanced problem. So they can do all that online Without without necessarily tracked me down which they're always welcome to do by just give you know. Give me a call. But the websites got great information not just for book in a check ride but also a lot of things that we talked about. Actually remember using. I'm on the website. Now it's like. I remember full well using this when i was looking at checkout mccarron northeast. Yeah i definitely went through this as well. Looks like at war examiners on there too so that's exciting. Yeah i actually was that You know three or four years ago you know. I really started looking at how fringe calls from all over the country. Hey can you might check right down here in fort lauderdale or san diego. I started thinking. Well if i get smother examiners to be on the website so if there are any listening out there any salmon that wanna be able to simplify their scheduling and have a one stop place for them for their students in nc to go in book appointments they can certainly do that by clicking league on the homepage belief on tv info or they can always call me directly your or a brenly so stewart pile. Check dot com so again that setup. It's kind of a nice deal where we can Get other examiners onboard. The website in make it really easy for more and more people around the country just scheduled there absolutely and it can be difficult to schedule check riot. It's kinda like a old man's called feel like to where they have all these flight instructors kind of on the payroll per se. But you know what i mean like. It's like this flight school. Only this check rides with him. You know that doesn't have. That's not how it has to be. You can take a check ride with pretty much over you want so i mean depending on what you're doing but yeah so i think the websites cool and i hope the continues to grow. I appreciate that it's It's really been well received than the last one. At least we're talking earlier about how you're going to come out with a podcast here soon. Correct i have. You have inspired me. So i've been listening to you. Matter of fact. I think we were talking i. It was something that you mentioned on the checkout. I gave you and i of course anything about cast. A lot of people didn't even wasn't that long ago but it was still something that i wasn't into but as i've been a kind of test or simple the waters a little bit as you know people tries in search for check right information so i thought A podcast regarding chang cried so the pilot check ride. Podcast is become our very close to getting episode. One out and my goal is to just be able to vice an insight in tips and interview. People that have to check rides are getting ready to take check. Rides other examiners and see if is to really get some great information about the practical test process in how that works training as well can cover all probably spring maryland in there but Yeah to be available wherever you find your chest go. I love him in. that's exciting. I think there's a mute for that. So let me know if i can help anyway but stewart i appreciate you. Coming up podcast. It's crazy to see how life can come full circle and you're giving me a check out a couple of years ago. Now i am in power. See interviewing you while. I'm glad to be here in the lead to be able to to give you the time to To talk to you. It sounds great. Catch up yeah any time.

"Sharp and he was doing a good job as some people just have bad days are like one. Bad moment i failed. My interim checker aydin similar. It's just i just. I don't know what happened. Said this one point in time. I was kinda like rainfall fart and didn't know what i was doing anymore and allies it And we talk about a positive experience in a cheque right. That's really hard for the student fails to think about getting a positive experience. But at the end of the day this is still a training environment per se. Like there's still something you can get out of it. You have a lot more knowledge and usually the person you are giving a check ride to. I'm sure there might be an odd circumstance where it's not true but most times you are the person with knowledge of everything so it's still okay to get some information outta this check right if you fail a chuck right. It's not the end of the world. it's important for you to realize that you can still get a job. I still got a job. People fail check rides and still get jobs. And how you're the airlines. You'll see your like we said earlier. Like how the heck did this guy get a job. But it's still possible if you have good career. Don't hang your head up on it too much. And i'd imagine like you said earlier. You don't really wanna fail someone. I'm sure that can be awkward for both you. And it's it's not the it's more paperwork. It's not the best experience forever and involved. Yeah no it's it's not. What i it's not what i want. I want everybody to make it through. Want everybody to have a positive experience in the you in maybe lot blah through. That is at our listening to give check rights and i think i'm mccain sending this even those that have have failed or check ride with me after we do the re-test or even the second retest a lot of times they'll come back to me In just confide insane stewart that was. I am such a better pilot because i failed that. Check ride and it was. You know i was pretty upset upset with you a little bit. was really upset with myself but at the end of the day is i'm glad happened because i'm a pilot. I learned my In what was going on. I had no idea what i was doing. Was prepared group. That up and the ashley was thanking. You know for for the experience. That's a good thing. Yeah i mean when you fail a check ride. There's a lot of embarrassment in your pride hurt so initially. You don't wanna take the blame yourself when you want to throw that outward person i failed you you know but then hopefully a day or two goes by and you're like oh wow are. I really didn't mess up like i deserve to fail. And it's okay to fail like we've been saying now. I've got a lot of people that are doing. Check with me on a career tracker in the aspiration to be a corporate tile near line pilot and. They are just devastated. And this is not going to get my adult interviewer. I'm not going to be able to absolutely not true. I mean just you fly with all types That have failed check. Rides or or. I'm sitting next to people that have failed. Check rides a united That are in the right. Seat of my airplanes is a. It's a normal process as you said it's part of training is a normal process of going through this aviation training career and i'm not saying everyone should just want the failed check ride but it's it's also good to to have some kind of adversity to show to an airline like i'm sure when united looks at applications and they see past past past past past past past like one they probably think probably could pile but like what are they going to do when crap hits the fan no. They haven't really shown any adversity in their life. They haven't shown how to handle anything like every single flight isn't perfect. What are they doing things. Go wrong what do they do when they mess up. When the plane messes up in the account on the haven't really facing adversity so it might and it could give you a chance to kinda show what you do when you have adversity interface. I actually use that exact ida. O'may look it. This is a positive. This is a story that you can turn into a positive during any interview experience process so be able to bring that up during that panel interview or that one on one interview process explained what happened lessons learned in and Turnage will good day appreciate that. Yeah i would highly recommend you never lie like if you have anything failed. They're going to find out. If you want this job. They would much rather you tell them. Upfront yeah i failed to check ride so to say failed one when the failed to like. Just tell them the truth. This is your opportunity to turn this positive like you said and tell them the truth and come clean and just say take ownership. I'm sure they would just love you to say. I messed up. Don't blame don't be like oh stewart corey's fault how dare him for for failing me. They're not going to want to hear that they're going to here. I must up. And this is what i did to fix it absolutely. Yeah you can. You can definitely just turn it around and Take ownership and turn it into a positive. That's all good so as an examiner you know that there are a lot of nerves going to check rides. It's not necessarily the most comfortable place for the first ten fifteen minutes. And as you as we kind of said in kinda talked about ten fifteen minutes can really set the tone for how the check rights gonna go. What kind of tips or better question is what does an examiner do. Do you feel obligated to kind of set the tone as a chill environment or very professional environment like try to make it kind of a friendly one on one in ease the nerves or is that more on Just kind of the pilot needs to understand. This is an important flight. And it's either pass or fail type deal because i mean at the end of the day at airline check ride. They're not going to baby you. It's you either can perform. You can't perform but as an examiner as an examiner. How do you go through that process. So yeah that's a great question. And it's something that i i really strive to to set a good environment in a good environment. I needed positive environment that allows the applicants to performance their best and not feel too stressed nervous. And what i do is one as you mentioned. Set professional tone in vienna. Let them know that. This is a check ride. It's kind of a big deal and it's a is something it's a milestone in in their aviation training career and when we get into the briefing and we started getting into the paperwork i still then try to create those those common areas things that we can chat about that start to loosen the apple can ups loosen them up a little bit to be able to to just calm nerves i i don't lose sight of how nervous i was during check rides or the testing and i don't remember having sailed that really cared whether i was nervous or not. They're just like i'm gonna start asking me questions and you can be over there sweating and shaking whatever you wanna do. But i think some enjoyed to. They're like got him squirming are now. Yeah i mean you hang around this stuff rely you run into some pretty interesting characters and and so so hang onto that. Knowing what i what. I experienced some of the i would say it was negative. It just wasn't the way it should be your could be being able to provide A more relaxed tone but still know that it's the professional I try try to his best cater to get them to get them because then that way before they're going to be a little more relaxed they're going to be able to To have access to the brain If you will be able to link all the stuff leaking out of their ears but of nervous It's every two or three questions it's colon teeth trying to get an answer out of them and it's not because they don't know it just because they're nervous and that's okay in my tell everybody is okay. I mean doing paperwork on akra in there sitting near and they just flat out. I'm really nervous laughing. Yummy to our or something like that. That's okay so mean even even now go out to the training center in denver is okay to have a little bit of nerve shallow today. Anxiety be able to know that You know there's.

"We were doing a ton of flight training there. And then when i was finished with all my instruction from seven in the morning till lakes in five or six in the evening then i have two guys sitting on the couch wanting to time in wotton so we top off the tanks and We put them in the airplane. They i had to ride along for insurance purposes as the end the so they We fly to wherever you know. Turn around and come back. So i'd get done around eight nine ten even later tonight in wake up and do the next day so adults multi-mm` really fast and the examiner dp that came out to our flight schools at a oliver checkers happened. Also be that you've pilot for Commuter airline out of st louis and one day in the airplane out of the anger in sweating in east lake stewart. How much time you got. And i rattled off with iraq you remember. It was like la two thousand total inter multi is. How will our start a new class a couple of weeks once you throw me your resume. Some day we'll see. If i can work something out and there you go. That was that was moved foot in the door to Make meter experienced train. States are lines. Did you apply anywhere else. Or was it kind of just like that's what you're just gonna fight instruct until i figure out next route and just. Yeah that's funny. yeah. I mean. I is so weird like i just was. Drowning launches. didn't even really thought about what the next step was. I just knew. I had to bill time in. There wasn't a ton of hiring going on at the time. So i just knew had to build time in multi was was critical so To a lot of airlines back in. So i just so happened. If he would have mentioned probably would have been just doing the same thing You know for months more before. Finally you know. Got off my button. Start to What's map out there. Because i really didn't. I really wasn't looking. I didn't think that there was anything. I didn't feel that. I was just quite qualified at the time. Probably could have been more proactive. But you know how you just get that daily routine. Just wake up in the go to bed and get up and do it again. You just not not really thinking sometimes. long-term yeah. I think that that does happen. A lot with people in their in their time building it might be don't wanna say complacent but they also feel pressure from the company. Either add the companies can do a good job of making them think that they're the at the best place they can possibly be. They really want you to stay. So they're gonna use. Every tactic became. And if that you need to move on you need to go to bigger things like go after united go after delta go after netjets go after whatever you want because it's just there's better flying have and it's good to have those jobs as experiences for When i flew freight for two years or three years to build the time. But i encourage everyone. Continue to strive for the best job. You can possibly get you especially now In this environment today where it is always been competitive and always will be competitive but when when the hiring is fast and furious. It's important to try and stay ahead of it or at least keep the eye on the prize not get to like you said not complacent but just a comfortable with with kinda where you are in no that. Sometimes that's okay because we talked about this earlier about his kind of enjoying the moment. Soak it up a little bit. That's fine but if you ask yourself. Is this really what i wanna do. Fi resealed twins in saint louis area for the rest of mine. I don't you know it's not what we always signed up for. Alary translates for before united came calling the next opportunity. It was think about six years. Yeah end about six years and take myself here but They were just getting the win. Forty five on the property or wow. Was that a getting that kind of job. The dream job. I would say from continental was that one of the best things to happen to your aviation career. Was that like finally. I made it. I'm a real major airline pilot or have you always kind of. I mean i kind of struggled for awhile being like. I'm a real pilot based on all the jobs that i've had but was getting that job as a continental pilot of like the for you that i made it. This is i finally did it. I like him at the criminal crop. I'm on a real major airline pilot. Yeah yeah i would say so. I mean it was a it was a big deal. It was a it was amazing. I was I was pretty pretty excited about it. Especially at the time continental was really hiring alive. They were really doing quite well and the industry was going. You know going along pretty well so it was. It was definitely the job. That i never thought i'd have It was something that. I never thought i could achieve. As i said earlier it was just pretty much of an impossibility of attempting to work through. All of that in to that to that level was pretty awesome along continental before continental became united. Well how long was the merger so i guess it was by the wisconsin. Allow twenty two years so yeah so And of course you know so. It was all been been united twenty two years as we say so in the first whatever sixteen were common whatever the march was but yeah it was a that was kind of an interesting time the merger itself but overall it's been awesome. It's an awesome as in your on kyla to To do what. I do believe musc- so many things in the league if your craft and things to one thing that stuck out to me when we did our the atp check ride was the story of how. You became an examiner. At the time that it will happen. I think remember you tell me. Maybe you had an application on your desk. The best to do it in the furlough came in. You were looking for other things to do did you do. Landscaping is. That was between the furlough. If i'm right yeah. No i probably did. I think a little bit of that but yeah it was. It was after nine eleven. And because i've been with continental for three years two and a half three years and so things were just really picking up things. Were really rolling along. And when i on nine eleven on september anything around december by december i was furloughed and I think for like three hundred pilots and.

two years september three years twenty two years two guys Forty five Alary st louis east lake stewart today two thousand december two and a half united first sixteen five one day three hundred pilots delta

"I'm slowly. yeah you've got to be able to have have those skills. The amount always be as sharp as they were when you did cross country maybe three months ago as you just just like anything Use you lose it. But you'd have to at least have some common knowledge to be able to To get that done to be able to even if it's just a fear lost or disoriented need to just get a hold of atc for some instead of a big deal absolutely absolutely now looking back at your training How was your training. Was there anything that you struggled with Other than to see calls. Maybe down a florida i or any kind of subject matter you struggled with our check is generally struggled with. I can't really recall anything. That was like super difficult. That really was a huge struggle. But it all it was. It always tough we. It's a lot of information and i went from. You know the private pilot when we got there. I needed adults across country time. And then i was doing this for. Training in from instrument is a crucial ally multi said months and it was so limited ton of information a lot already tests. And but that's all i did. It was it was just. I was just immersed in that. So even if i wasn't in the airplane in house standing in a flight school talking to for their guys and gals that were insane trying to trying to figure it out too. So i can't really think i guess. The training was probably the most intense as far as whether was holding patterns or china trying to get the aproach stuff wired in more than sixteen head of the airplane but it was all it was all pretty pretty intense pretty Pretty tough you wish you would've taken a little slower. You glad you it is sometimes i do. Sometimes i do wish it could have gone a little slower just because i could've enjoyed a little bit more. I think i still got out of it. What i needed i really did. And just like everybody says i. I turned around started beating instructor. And that's when you really start learning stuff. I think you would but when you start teaching when you really start grasping the importance in data in the details of it but it was. It was a good program you know. They had they part sixty one. Forty one in the deflate schooler. Dumb was kind of a combination of both depending on the program so I think i think it served really well in being able to get through it but there were times yet which would probably could have enjoyed a little bit more. Oslo slow process down that. Yeah i think. That's a big dilemma for everyone on trading. You know there's this whole seniority number. You gotta get this done as fast as possible. And i'm very much on the side of this argument or not really argument but kind of just Which way you choose. I'm very much in the way of getting this done as fast as possible and getting that scenario number has proven last year so so you already really does matter and can rule rule everything essentially but it is kind of a dilemma. How do you enjoy it. And how do you get it done as fast as possible. You know you wanna make sure you you enjoy your time because you're not gonna be able to fly single single engine planes a half done. I mean there's a lot of times. I wish i could still go serious. Or whatever it may be but You definitely need to get it done pretty quick to get to where you want to go. Yeah yeah and. I think there are opportunities. Even if you are an accelerated program there are still opportunities to to kind of take a step back in and so cut up a little bit. I think we all we all kind of do that. Even even the training or even on our regular slice and times for hustle and again flight off the gate or at the end of the air within reason But there's still times you can kind slow the process down a little bit. Enjoy it so i agree with you. There needs to be a little bit of a balance. Sometimes it has to do with just how the individuals wired so people are just Kind of fast paced nature being able to blast through. They still enjoy it. Others stay with through alley known interested. I don't even know. I remember my commercial check. Ride i fast. So you're right. It has to be a little bit of a bounce. There's not a right way a wrong way. It's whatever works best for you right like if it takes longer. It takes longer if you get it done. In seven months you had done in seven months o'leary could agree more. Yes just whatever whatever works for you and your schedule and everything else that goes with it. So what was your career path like getting to united. We kind of talked a little bit about your training but we are at the point where you got everything done in those seven months down in florida and now you are building your time. You're trying to get to united to a major airline. What was next. How did you get there. Yeah so. I thought when i was going through training when it got down to florida and i started going through insert commercial. Actually i got down there. I'll remember thinking was english degree from iowa and my vision is not that great and Nothing great at all. In if i it's credible twenty twenty and that's spell say and if i'm gonna be marketable or if i can at least if i can someday be an airline pilot. I'm need to do something else. And so in. Addition to taking the classes i mean the In the lessons at the flight school in rental actually had an outlet. Right there at the airport in executive in isos started looking at graduate classes there in so wasn't flying in the daytime building my time across country. I took classes in the evening For that offer their master's degree and just try to go through that. So after i finished all flight training in the seven-month period i still had classes to finish up the nassar's degree program while i was doing that than the guy hired me as an instructor so adult time. Instructing interesting is i would take is from providence rick commercial in and of course the next progression each other multi. But you know how to be. I the guy guy that on the flight school. His son was also an instructor so every time. The guy came up for multi trading. He would just give to his son. Because obviously multi time was everything especially back in So i never really a multi satellite to our two years of rules direction given in sandwich. Airplanes prejudice commercial very little multi time. So after i finished up the Graduate stuff at At real i went back towards the quincy back towards Hometown landed in saint. Louis which is just a couple of hours south of Of quincy and that's where. I end up finding another flight school. It had nothing but multi-engine like really short course program so you could go into saint louis and get your two or three day. Atp or multi rating or any. I in the also advertise tim. So people can come in and build montana block time as well if they bought in like a block of honored hours of multi time so i went there and instructed. Nfl multi time pretty quickly because.

"Know but most people don't know is you actually gave me my. Atp check cried Seems like forever. Go now in northeast. Ohio idea on a very cold northeast ohio day. That's right very very cold day. That was that was interesting I recommend everyone to make sure the heater works before you go take a check ride off. It's definitely fun in A good flight. that's for sure. I don't think i've ever been that cold in airplane. Yeah what's funny is an hour trying to line this up. I did that about Two or three months ago. I did a cheque right in that same clean and the heater tripped off during the flight in twin and ended up giving the his My gloves because he didn't have any clubs out. You know if you had clubs. Have i think i think transfer controls zala shit but we transfer controls for about ten seconds Period gonna during your check ride. So he's the is about. The cold was yeah it was. It was pretty rough so things things sometimes. Don't change that airplanes still active little bit. That's funny yeah. Maybe we should raise some money for them to fix the heater. Just a circuit breaker essentially as bad as the truth or cool before we get into kind of the examiner side. I want to know a little bit more about you and why you even wanted to be a pile in the first place. So what is What's your story. Why did stewart want to be a pilot as everybody seems to preface. It's pretty much the same by Just a childhood dream and really fascinated with aviation. Since i can remember and i really gosh it was probably when i was a teenager teenager. Maybe like twelve thirteen fourteen. We went out skiing. Because i was born in a little town in illinois so we went out skiing To my uncle's out in albuquerque in my uncle Had a to ten. And i remember going up there in the he took me out to the airport and show me the airplane and we even went for a flight in the mountains. Where they're you know just Flying around we actually took a flight up to two during colorado to do some steam. And i thought that was just about the coolest thing. So obviously very impressionable. It definitely stuck with me and the whole microsoft flight simulator and spend way too much time doing that in my A teenage years high school days at all to in the morning finding out of chicago. So yeah it was. Just one of those things that always That would be really cool but certainly was not something that cleaned it was. It was just such a far far off dream. There's no way that i could have. I could possibly do something like that. That would have been. That was impossible. So what took it from that far off dream into what is now your career. How did you go from just a kid that was up to ten one time and flying flight simulator. Actually making it to be a pilot. Yeah when i was ending sitting on the computer my dad came came by one day. Came by the or the computer room was lee said. Why don't you go out to the actual airport in. Take a flying less than he is. I know the guy that runs airport. I went high school with you. Know salute guy said the report manager instructor. And so i didn't. And that was. I think my senior year in high school and i went out there and took a lesson a couple of lessons with him. definitely got the bug thought that was just about the coolest thing and then ended up getting a regular flight instructor there right from the seo because obviously was little busy in an started from there so my senior year through that summer. After my after i high school was when i finished up my private pilot in in off from there but it was it was just really cool to be able to to go out to that airport middletown which is quincy illinois So it was a big airport but uncontrolled report. It was a had a runways which was probably good since i was learning to fly a wide runways between between that and then just seeing all the commuter couple commuter airliner step went in there the triple would come into now there and To check those out so it s started Quincy illinois i fly flown there quite a bit recently the job and a half now so it's cool. Obviously i live in chicago. So we We fly all over the place big airport smaller reports. Yeah yeah when you took that first. Flight erica intro flight deal at quincy or illinois. Was it an immediate. This is what i'm gonna do for my career or was it kind of like. Oh this is fun. Let's kinda see how this goes in where we can take it. It was more that it was more just heinous is kind of a cool activity. Maybe penal be private pilots needed. She meant but i really didn't think of it as a career thing really wasn't tracking that way in my tab there no one in my family. Other than my. My uncle who. I didn't see very often. That was a was just a private pilot out there. That was it. That's the only contact. I know My dad did have pilot certificate from way back. When i think others a couple of pictures of me when i was like two or three standing news to like assessing cardinal and so then he was busy with With his work in never did any flying. As i was coming up But i knew that he was was interested in. I think he. He enjoyed the fact that i was interested in but it was certainly just one of those can be kinda cool. Hobby released kind. How how started out you. When did you realize wasn't going to be a hobby for you..
