A highlight from No Challenge to Difficult Lessons in Resilience from a Lone Survivor
"Welcome to the Dr. Fitness USA show exercises medicine, strength training and stronger medicine with your host, Batista and myself as the co -host, Dr. Fitness USA. Today, we are so honored to have as our guest, Joy Cooper. She has an amazing story. Joy Cooper is a number one best selling author, keynote speaker, operations manager for United Airlines with a Master's in Aeronautics and a pilot. Her story was featured in CBS TV and she has been interviewed on top rated podcasts. Joy shares her experience as the lone survivor of a fatal plane crash. When others told her she would never walk again, she proved that she would do more than that. She would dance again. The plane crash broke every extremity, threatened to destroy everything she had worked for. Joy's journey brought her through paralysis, multiple surgeries and accident investigations. For her, mediocrity is synonymous with failure and limits are something to be redefined and concurred. And today, our topic is no challenge to difficult lessons in resilience from a lone survivor. Welcome, Joy. We're so honored to have you on our show today. Thank you, Batista. I'm so honored to be here. So to get started, why don't you tell us a little bit about what brought you to aviation? Aviation, it's kind of been in my blood since my dad was a pilot. And after hearing his stories of what he did and had to go through to get all of his licenses and ratings and the flights that he took, my little brain said, well, the best and smartest and most adventurous people are pilots. And so, of course, I want to be a pilot. And we were also raised with lots of history and documentaries and World War Two, World War One, all of the beginning of aviation introduced in the really rapid growth of that. And I thought, I'll be a fighter pilot because if you're going to be the best of the best, you might as well go for it. Unfortunately, I talked myself out of that or maybe it's fortunately. But I went on the path of becoming a pilot because I wanted to test those skills. I wanted to prove to myself that I had that skill and that ability. And also, I love that adventure, that just rush of taking off and then the freedom of just flying through the air with, well, pretty much no restrictions, but just kind of coasting up there. It's just a whole nother world. It was beautiful. And that got me into where I am now, working almost 10 years with the airlines on the ground. I didn't do much as a pilot. I found that I actually enjoyed the operational aspect of running an airline and all the tiny little things that go into that to be able to get you to your airport, to your plane, to your destination safely, and with all of your luggage, because that's a thing. Doing all that nitty gritty sort of stuff really is what I enjoy doing, all the small things behind the scenes to make everything else look really good. I love that aspect of it. Everything about aviation has always fascinated me. I love it. So Joy, can you relate the story of what happened in Alaska when your plane crashed and you became the sole survivor? Yeah. So when I was in flight school, my flight instructor said, Look around. One in four of you are going to be in a plane crash, and most likely it's going to be fatal. I thought, he's just trying to get us to study harder. It's a ploy, it's a tactic. And unfortunately, he was correct, or very close to correct. I never thought it was going to happen to me. I was on vacation with my best friend and her uncle who lived in Alaska. We were coming back from one of their remote properties. They had owned that property for over 20 years and flown back and forth multiple times a year, so it's a very comfortable, normal place. As we were flying back, though, a wildfire that had been about 300 miles to the west of us, the wind apparently had picked up and blown that smoke into one of the valleys that we were going through. So it went from perfectly clear to we couldn't see anything. We couldn't see our hand outside of our face if it was outside the window, of course.
Companies Brace for Supreme Court's Affirmative Action Ruling
"Brace for Supreme Court rate ruling on affirmative action this came out last week in the Wall Street Journal a Decision on race conscious college admissions could have implications for corporate Diversity programs you mean like United Airlines which said that it's reserving half of its flight school places For women and racial minorities Do you really want your pilots to be chosen on that basis Well It's it's fascinating that three justices Actually thought that it was constitutional what those justices did is Confuse what they would like to see with what is constitutional. They're not the same things US companies are preparing for a Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action To present new tests to their hiring and other personnel decisions The outcome of two parallel cases Which involve admissions policies at Harvard University and the University of North Carolina? Won't directly affect employers practices and policies which are generated by a different statute than admissions but Lawyers and business leaders say they expect that any decision restricting or Could lead to a moral to more legal challenges to company hiring and promotion decisions
Pilots at United picket for higher pay as pressure builds before summer travel season
"Pilots at United Airlines picketed for higher pay at major airports from coast to coast. They were wearing their pilots uniforms, hat included holding signs that read families first fix our schedules and four years past due. We've reached a point where management is stuck on denial and delay. And we're frustrated. Pilot Garth Thompson was at O'Hare airport in Chicago. Pilots like arzu delp in San Francisco say united should reward them for helping the airline survive the pandemic. And we feel it is now time for the company to step to the plate. And to give us a contract, acknowledging the sacrifices and the contributions that we have made. A united spokesman says they're working with the pilot union on a deal, a strike is an unlikely, but pilots at American and Southwest have voted to authorize strikes, Delta Air Lines reached a deal with its pilots earlier this year.

Country Star's Pregnant Sister Forced to Clean Up Popcorn on Flight
"Jump in here. The first one is, is the story that is developing developed early in the week, Jesse James decker, who is a country music star, fan, her sister in law's married to a Major League Baseball player. She's undoubtedly flying. United Airlines, she has two small children. She's pregnant. And united stewardesses and sewers on Dali gave her some popcorn for the kids to eat. I guess to keep them, you know, as you would, you know, try to keep them past 5. Anyway, as young kids will do, the child, you know, through the popcorn or drop the popcorn, however you want to say it. And this is the part that I don't understand from this. And maybe James, you can help me understand. The story goes that Anthony bass is the pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays. And this is who it happened to. But it's also Jesse James decker's sister in law. And so anyway, they make her come back in the story goes. Is it the flight attendant came back and gave her some wipes and said, you have to clean this up per the captain? Right. So I read that to you where they gave her that trash bags or something. Whatever they gave her, yeah, to clean it up. But they blamed it on the captain. Yeah. She tried to pass it off on the cabin. Have you ever heard of a captain who gave one, you know, would have actually known unless it was somebody fighting in the back about somebody spilling something. I mean, I've been on planes before and people spill stuff all the time. I had so many scream on a plane, bloody murder in the captain didn't move. I don't think he cares about spilled popcorn. Listen, I have, all right, tell me how you feel. Tell me how you feel about this because I'm a little confused for a couple of reasons. First, I don't want to make it like the stewardess job is to clean up, but it kind of is. Right? Yeah. And this woman, it also depends on how the woman the mom treated the staff. Because if she was awful to them the whole trip, then I could see the maybe being a little bit iffy about it. But you gave a woman with who's pregnant with two kids popcorn. What did you think was going to happen?

And this person has a family, this person had a future, this person should be loved, should be appreciated, but what happens is, is not the pressure from the outside world. It's that instead of thrust in these young people into transgenderism, we should probably spend a lot of time effort and energy and intelligence to get them to help they deserve.

Oath keepers founder Stewart Rhodes returns to court for his trial on charges related to the capitol riot. Rhodes graduated from Yale law school. He was a clerk on the Arizona Supreme Court, but for people he worked with like Matt Perry, Rhodes came across as angry. I made the jokes about Stewart having being the next Hitler. I really meant that he was going to lead some kind of charge against the government, just like Hitler did at the beer hall putsch, get arrested, be in jail, and that was going to be it. And that was going to be the end of Stewart. Perry told the AP roads alienated his Republican boss and the Arizona Supreme Court and eventually left the job. Jim Arroyo was president of an oath keepers chapter in Arizona. Stewart will. In my opinion, go down as a person who created one of the greatest organizations this country has ever seen. And then destroyed it single handedly. At the same time. Arroyo says roads wanted to send oath keepers to the Mexico border in an armed operation to support border patrol.

President Biden is said to announce a new initiative aimed at allowing travelers to see the true cost of airline tickets. The White House says the transportation department's new rule would stop airlines from hiding things like baggage and change fees. That would help consumers save money upfront and encourage more competition among airlines to offer better fares. The president this afternoon will push other agencies to take similar actions, focused on boosting transparency on hidden fees that can balloon true costs. The administration's taken similar actions on bank and credit card fees. The moves come as The White House looks for more ways to lower costs amid high inflation. Kindergarten will not be mandatory in California. Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed legislation Sunday Night that would have required children to attend kindergarten before entering the first grade at a public school.

Unvaccinated Pilots File Lawsuit Against United Airlines
"Friendly skies. Interview with an unvaccinated pilot suing United Airlines. Roger Simon is the author of the piece. It is about Tom Floyd, a United Airlines pilot. And here is the report he is among 30 unvaccinated pilots flight attendants ramp service workers, and other personnel who, as of January 19th, are suing United Airlines because in the words of their complaint they have been fired, placed on unpaid leave or otherwise had their careers at United limited or terminated without just compensation. In this regard, I don't believe united has been worse than others, but when it comes to destructive policies and wokeness and cowardice United Airlines is near or at the top, they also vowed last year or the year before, I believe it was last year that they would reserve half their places in their flight training school, their pilot training school for women and non whites. So you should just know should you decide to fly the fly united. That they are terminating qualified pilots, and they will be hiring presumably some, not all, some unqualified pilots.

"Regional banks get tomorrow, but we get a lot of those industrial companies, you know, like the trucking companies like JB Han. I think we get prolonged just a big warehouse company as well Alcoa. Of course, it's a big aluminum maker. So I think we're going to get a much better sense here of how certain pockets of the economy are holding up. And if the results are similar to what we got out of united, this could be the all clear for a certain type of investor. And this is the skew really because what you just mentioned, the JB hunts of the world, the Alcoa of the world. That's probably a much better read of the economy, but then you think about big tech reporting next week. And the sway that has over the stock market, if you think about the benchmark math, maybe that's more consequence. We care about Netflix the way we used to. Is that going to be the bellwether? I don't know if Netflix is the bellwether necessarily, but it is, you know, the unofficial start I do care about the new ad supported tier to the extent that how ad spending has been because we saw the reporting earlier this year that they weren't actually able to satisfy the number of views that they said that they would be able to. And we've had so much weakness in the advertising market over the last few months and it's at social media companies. So that's interesting to me. But I agree, it's not necessarily market as brutal on Netflix is going to learn that the hard way. But you know, look, we know they have the content and they obviously have a good base. So maybe they'll make it work. Well, and I do wonder how much of the mark is going to be kind of cut into different sectors, right? Something like United Airlines. I feel like that's old economy to some extent versus a Netflix or some of the tech names that were just couldn't do anything wrong during the pandemic. It seems like Netflix has had quite a bounce. How much of the optimism is already built in. So how they do, do we see the stock move higher or lower based on that? So I don't know, I really do feel like we're back to a market where you really have to look at a company, company specific industry specific and really look at the fundamentals. Can I bring you just another quick redhead crossing the wire? This one Moderna shares up about 5% in after hours trading. The company saying that that phase three study of that RSV vaccine candidate has met targets. Again, this is coming specifically out of Moderna. Basically announcing that their MRA 1345 that a lot of people have been tracking didn't meet the primary efficacy endpoints here. So this is obviously it could be a big deal for Moderna, which of course is trying to sort of expand on the technology that led it to that COVID vaccine and apply that, of course, to other applications as well. Yeah, right now, Moderna up about 7% in the after hours, interactive boker up about 2.6, excuse me, and then of course we're seeing the airlines all move up on that United Airlines report. All right, lots of earnings to come this week will be all over them. Guys, that's a wrap across platform coverage, radio TV, YouTube, and of course on Bloomberg, quick take. We will see you again.

It might have been the most important speech he ever gave. Will it will it be reflected upon when he's running for national office? Oh, I think that this speech will appear in a lot of different places to try and motivate and encourage people of like minded persuasion to get involved in politics in the future. He has a very strong pack operation that's trying to recruit people who actually take their oath of office seriously. It's been interesting to me Jeannie to watch Democrats warm up to Adam kinzinger. Will Democrats listen to Adam kinzinger now? He does make a really important point about what Democrats did in this election cycle by supporting these trumpian far right candidates in the hopes they would be easier to beat

rates in neutral by the end of the year Moving purposefully to a more neutral stance that does not stimulate the economy that is clearly demonstrated it can self sustain is a top priority And this is where the question of timing comes in How quickly should we get there So accounting for the risks of being too fast or too slow I see an expeditious march to neutral by the end of the year as the prudent path And San Francisco fed president Mary Daly made the comments at an economic conference in Las Vegas Well despite the rise in inflation and interest rate hikes Karen Bank of America CEO

There's a New Diversity Program at United Airlines and Not All Employees Are Fans
"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
Joe Biden Makes Poor Joke About Freedom and Vaccine Mandate
"All right Jim you got 6 Here is the bag of bones the Pino president name only Say nah he's vaccine mandates freedom Schmidt I'm not kind of stuff Check this out I waited until July To talk about mandating because I tried everything else possible The mandates are working All the stuff about people leaving and people will have you have everyone for United Airlines to spirit all these airlines We're not going to get all 96 97% of the people have gotten the vaccine All the talk about all these folks who are going to leave the military If they're mandated not true you got about a 90 some percent vaccination rate I mean so the idea is that look the two things that concern me one are those who just try to make this a political issue Freedom I'm the freedom to kill you with my COVID No I'm freedom Screw you Now you don't That's how Arnold feels Notice how dangerous that argument is One how ridiculous and absurd it is which is everything that emanates from the soup cooler of Joe Biden That argument could be used for anything If you don't eat your broccoli and you then in turn get obese and have a heart attack and take away my room in the hospital when I need an emergency room did you take away my freedom If you smoke or decide to drink and then drink and drive which is obviously a very stupid thing to do when you take out a family of you know three and four kids and mom and dad Did you take away their freedom You took away their life

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

I'm announcing that the department of labor is developing an emergency rule to require all employers with one hundred or more employees that together employees over eighty million workers to ensure their workforce's are fully vaccinated or show a test at least once a week the president seemingly exasperated during a speech this week urging those who refuse to get vaccinated to reconsider my message to unvaccinated. Americans is this. What more is there to wait for. What more do you need to see. We've made vaccinations free safety. Convenient the vaccine is fda approval. Over two hundred million. Americans have gotten at least one shot president biden saying it's nothing new. Some of the biggest companies are already requiring this united airlines disney choices food and even fox news the president also addressing the frustration. Those who have been vaccinated may be feeling. You've been patient but our patience is wearing thin and you refusal has cost all of us. So please do the right thing. President biden also taking aim at state governors and other local officials who are not putting forth. Kobe mitigation measures in their communities especially in schools. My plan also takes on elected officials and states that are undermining you and these life saving actions right now. Local school officials are trying to keep children safe in a pandemic while they're governor picks a fight them and even threatens their salaries or their jobs talk about bullying

"For years. Now story core has been working with the national september eleventh memorial and museum to record and catalogue the voices.

Her mom said or drive up to new york and try to help. It was less than four hours from the dc area where they lived.

Duct-Taping on Planes Is Having a Moment
"When passengers are out of control flight attendants reach for last resort and he guesses duct tape well who thought duct tape would become an essential flight attendant tool. But we've seen in the news Duck taping used on unruly passengers. There was a woman on an american airlines flight. In july there was a frontier airlines flight with a man who allegedly groped and flight attendants and then more recently at american airlines cabin crew member had some duct tape during an incident with a young passenger. Although restraint cuffs were us instead The article points out it turns out this has been happening for years if i think they. They went back and looked and news. Reports from the past include united airlines passenger in two thousand three a woman on united in two thousand eight a man on icelandair in two thousand thirteen and a woman on american in twenty eighteen so duct tape as a as a restraint isn't apparently something brand new but we are seeing awful. Lot of it This year rob. What do you think is is this an effective Or advisable even method to subdue an unruly passenger. What do you think it's a funny thing. But when when i was flying for living i mean we. We never worried about this kind of thing because at worst we might have had somebody. That was a little inebriated or and they got a little little loud. Maybe a little mouthy with a flight attendant but but we never had People swinging at cabin crew. And and i. I mean if he i think that of course. I think the story mentioned that The restraints are only used with the permission of the captain. And i'd be the first one to say man tie that man that woman
"united airlines" Discussed on The Great Fail
"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.

Yes all other gamer there. Yeah that's the what do they call it. The regional heavy isn't always been up front us greater than it is a solid airplane. I honestly it's probably one airplanes. Be pastor on yes i would. I would agree. That looks comfortable. upfront is certainly A nice ride in the cabin. All right last question for you. This is not a rapid-fire question for you. But obviously this career is insane and has been proven this last year you have more experience with this as being furloughed in the past with nine eleven financial crisis andrew going through this pandemic as well and each one. You've probably seen different things. I'm not sure if you're furlough during the financial crisis or not but as your seniority grown you probably have a different outlook based on everything. What do you think about this career now. Like saying someone that's coming up right now you giving them their commercial check ride and they're really excited. 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.

"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.

"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.

This is the aviation report with Jay Ratliff brought to you by the Greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport on 700 Wlw. All right, Jay. Big news here that United Airlines has decided the future is here now. We're spending a billion dollars on 200 air taxis. These were Elektronik paratroopers, If you will, that would shuttle people to the airport to hop aboard a United Airlines flight. And Mike, if you keep in mind that United lost $7 billion last year, and they're looking at Having AH, year this year, That's gonna be more than challenging. It's a little interesting to see him spending this kind of money on this kind of technology now, but we'll see where it goes. Years ago. Plenty of cities, including Cincinnati, I guess tried heliports. You had the Western and Southern heliport. New York had them. Philadelphia had them and people just didn't bother taking a helicopter to the airport. It took a taxi. I wondered why this would be different. I don't know. I never mind me years ago when they built the Empire State Building at the top was going to be a transportation center for the You know the dirigibles that could can't park there And then they found out the window at altitude tent made a problematic so that didn't work out. But Of the year. Taxis air their technology that people are looking at that seems to have a viable future. And, of course, the airlines that they can use that it's also like back in the thirties, when American Airlines within the limousine to your house. Thank you have to take you to the airport. So I guess we'll see where all this leads. All right, then Allegiant find themselves under fire for booting four teams off of light. Now they were 16 and 17 years old. They're the group of four and they boarded makes Arizona and the flight attendants were having a time reminding them that they needed to keep the mask over their nose and their mouth. But apparently they were having some issues and finally decided T O kick the four ofus they've done to so many people so many different times for the exact same reasons. The four young men were African American. So it's becoming a racial issue now, saying that it has not been for their skin color, they would have been booted off. But again, they've got to be consistent with the policy and allegiance seem to be doing just that. Michael have the very least on that and more on the aviation block, which is sponsored is always for the greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport, offering fares to Miami around her for $64.
