They have announced they are not doing it. Based on quality but based on race and gender is gonna fly united. And if you don't let them know why i had a.

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

United will buy two hundred boeing max family airplanes as well as seventy airbus a three twenty one. Nieto's the new. Airplanes are part of a plan by united to gross domestic capacity by thirty percent over the next five years. But not everyone in aviation came out a winner. United glance stopped flying fifty seat regional jets at. It's major hubs arche another blow to that struggling sector of the industry joining me to make sense of all this. Our aviation weekenders yen's flow tout and fan goldstein ben. Let's start with you. Tell us about this united order yet. Joe so the order was united's largest ever it was also one of the biggest orders We've seen in the past decade Particularly in in recent years You know it's for one hundred fifty seven three seven max aircraft Breaking it down. It's a hundred max. Tens and fifty. Max eighths as well as the seventy eight three twenty. One nieto's united already had an order placed for one hundred max tense so this ups their commitment to two hundred and fifty. Max tends making it by far the largest operator of of the type which is of course the the largest max variant these. These planes are all due to arrive. between twenty twenty two most of them between twenty twenty two and twenty twenty six and is really going to ramp up pretty quickly in twenty twenty three. They're going to be taking a one hundred thirty eight aircraft so that some really about one plane every three days so a lot of capacity coming in and at the same time as they're taking these these new jets they're going to be retiring more than two hundred fifty seaters. This is going to amount to a really big increase in capacity at united

"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.

"But we needed to create the product that customers will choose to fly united airlines. You have the largest or the oldest fleet right now at more than sixteen years for the average age of your aircraft. But you're going to be taking what one new plane on average every three days and twenty three by the time we get to twenty twenty three one or new airplane every three days. Which i don't know of any airline in history. That's even come close to that but this really is about as we come out of covid and as we have confidence in the future being able to rapidly change the airline for customers. You're not playing list price for these aircraft. I know people always say that. They're like are they. Spending and list price would be somewhere around thirty three thirty five billion dollars. Clearly you're not paying that much but the critics will look at this and they'll say this is an airline that already has heavy debt and there are a lot of questions about how you're gonna pay that back in addition to whether or not business is going to come back both in terms of corporate as well as international. What do you say to those critics. Joe well i on the second point. We believed back in april of last year. We were unique early. The only ones it believed that business travel international ultimately come back every day. Two point as we've gone through crisis mix. That gets stronger and stronger today and today you know. It's an understatement. Am confident that business travel is gonna come business. Travel is gonna come back. It's going to be a little bit different. Some of it will be people commuting instead of driving to work They'll be things like that are different. But we've seen a huge accelerate even the last few weeks and real quick. Before i toss it to joe and i know you got a question joe when you say business. Travel is coming back. Where are we at right. Now in wendy. You think that we're at more than or back to nine thousand nineteen levels so we're down to about sixty percent now literally ten weeks ago. We were down close to ninety percent that tells you something about the acceleration and all the anecdotes we hear from customer is once we get to september. They're going to be back on the road particularly for client facing visits. I don't think business travel comes back. One hundred percent probably until two thousand twenty three but i think we have a big step function increase in september another one in january when people have budgets again but but we absolutely think it's one hundred percent. Joe go ahead thanks. Scott planes are important. Obviously but i think airlines that. I think about how daunting what you do. Actually is and that makes your people so important across the board from ticketing agents the pilot's flight attendant anybody that maintenance everything and i still cause a mold. I still think continental and united. I think of of the separation in the culture trying to put those two airlines together and some of the issues that i guess it's been years now and we've been through the pandemic labor issues The culture clash between united and continental one airline. Everybody happy everybody's united so to speak. I think we all are united. And i don't hear that at all. Of course i wasn't here at the time of the merger but we are united as single airline. And i think we were getting there. before under oscars leadership as we went into the pandemic but particularly coming out of the pandemic everything we went to the amount of pride united airlines for the role we played in the global humanitarian response and flying thirteen thousand cargo flights carrying over a billion tons of equipment around the world. The us -tarian response in india. Most recently that pride has created a sense that united airline that it's our destiny to be the leading airline in the world and this orders. Another part of the even the rumors of it when i flew in yesterday employees. We're incredibly excited trying to get me to spill the beans on what it was going to actually be But our people feel really good. And i think that's in our past seat back entertainment and somebody brought up on the call yesterday. It used to be if you mentioned it to an executive at united say three or four years ago. No no no no no no no you download the app and that's good enough. You realize the value of the seat back entertainment correct. I look see back entertainment. I think is one of the most important things we can see it. In our data you know every all of the customer service scores get massively better just from having seat back entertain. People like the food more like you know. They don't care as much about the flight delays. Everything is better with seat back entertainment. Walk through a cabin. You see sixty percent of people using it. I flew this month in my seven year. Old son had seat back entertainment and he was bouncing up and down to tell me when we got off the plane how he played battleship in two games and lost only one on the flight and mean. Just it's such an improvement in the experience for customers. Let's talk about international travel. It sounds like you believe. And i know on the call yesterday. You guys said that you think next year is a record year for transatlantic travel. What about asia. So we think asia's going to take a little longer to recover combination of they had much closer to zero tolerance on cova a different place than we are here in the. Us were in europe. And so we don't think asia's coming back probably for eighteen months until it really comes back. The good news. Is you know all of our airplanes. That were flying asia. We've added it a lot of new service to india and africa and that service has done really well so we have the ability to to wait. Strengthen your next year. Africa india other places and wait for asia to to get back to full. Probably eighteen months from now joe. Thanks and we've talked about airlines lot. Andrew pointed things out. A lot's got about you know just how to make sure that that airline's keep enough in reserve for for things that really only affect the airline industry that i think nine eleven i think about it. We can't guarantee that there's not going to be another pandemic. So how do you ever keep rainy day fund so that you're not going to need any assistance again in the. Is it ever possible that an airline can be totally impervious to future government assistance given the nature of your business. Is it ever possible to expansion to be more like a utility. Or i don't understand how you do that. And how you can ensure that. That won't happen again with such It is perilous. What you do. Yeah we are. We are more subject than most What we call black swans Although i hate the term black swan because of black swans happened once a decade. They're really not a black swan. They're just different events You know historically we thought of it if we could survive something that was twice as bad as nine eleven which was by far. The worst thing ever happened to aviation Than we were. Okay of course covid through us something. That was an order of magnitude worse than even nine eleven was from a financial perspective The fact that we made through and thanks to the bipartisan support in congress and the administration to help not just aviation but the whole economy the fact that the whole us economy made it through as strong as it did for this event you know is a testament to what they did in washington hub of radiation in particular. You know while. I hope we'll never have another event like this. You can't obviously guarantee it but we can position ourselves Even better in the future davidge stronger balance sheet so that we can get through the crisis. We're going to have more cash on the balance sheet. We're going to pay down debt. You know the amazing thing about this plan that we're announcing today while we're buying thirty billion at list price worth airplanes By twenty twenty six we actually expect to have our lake relevant ratio below two and a half and it was three point. Two coming into covert. So it's gonna take time. It's not gonna happen immediately. But we're well positioned for the future and and it really is good that you know the response to see the whole economy not just aviation the whole economy responding like it is coming out of covid talk to you about staffing levels. We know the problems that american had recently where they had to cancel a lot of flights because they just didn't have staffing there were some storms came up to The philadelphia chapter of the american pilots association has said that what they've seen initial forward-looking data suggests that management has published and sold the schedule through december of this year that it probably doesn't have profited proper staffing to execute. Is that a problem. United is facing and What.

The ftc failed to prove its main contention. The facebook holds monopoly power in the united states over personal social networking markets. The court chastise the agency for failing to provide an estimate for facebook's market share at any point over the last ten years saying it is almost as if the agency expects the court to simply nod the conventional wisdom that facebook is a monopolist. The ruling does leave the door open for the ftc to shore up the week. Parts of its and file an amended complaint in the future. I believe that has to be done in the next thirty days. But andrew this definitely strikes a blow Against the regulatory efforts to try and rein. Facebook end it. Does i have to tell you. The ruling is fabulously written ruling. I mean i just thought. The rationale with which the judge explained it affected by the way throws out the state's case completely. The state's case has gone almost impossible for that to come back the case. We'll get Refiled he does make an interesting heels lays out the what the ftc would need to do with they. Try to repeat this case if they do what you have to imagine they will. But it's true. We all say we all. But i think a lotta people unfortunately simply say sizes. If you're big your monopoly we regurgitate. What a lot of these politicians and activists say if it's just it's just truth and the truth is that the law is very clear and different. Perhaps then within what people think now by the way there's lots of people who think the law should change and interestingly either and isn't very interesting sir test case either you think facebook is monopoly or you think the law should change. It's sorta hard to believe that can be both at the same time so this'll be a very interesting sort of test case as to all how things play out. But if you're into kind of reading it's it's absolutely worth it. Because the judge makes him very very interesting now not not even bold or wild radical views but explains the law in a way that. I don't think we often do do enough jewelry. Labs agreed to pay forty million dollars to the state of north carolina to set a lawsuit that alleged that the cigarette maker had targeted underage users. Now also the ledge that you will designed and marketed those e cigs to attract teenagers and misrepresented the potency of their nicotine. Joel did not admit wrongdoing as part of the settlement the funds. We'll go to support scientific research to curb you vaping. Thirteen other attorney generals have now sued the company after regulatory pressure increase in two thousand nineteen jewel halted most us advertising releasing its over t overseas expansion. A stopped selling sweet and fruity flavors evaluation plunging from thirty eight billion dollars in two thousand eighteen. Just about four billion dollars right now the fda currently evaluating whether gills products can remain on the us market and. I don't know as the debate closed yet on vaping guys were talking about that when when when you when you said joel at the thought joe. We both thought joel. They say means nothing. I never talked about this. I thought about it. And so long. I mean i remember that. There's a tv guy who was like on break like doing that was like what are you doing. I just think you meet a nicotine delivery system. What's wrong with you. I don't i don't know who does it. Just don't don't do it then. You won't need it right. You don't need if you don't we. Don't drink your coffee right. There were all group of people who said it was a lot healthier than smoking right relatives not i knew people and they were doing it and putting it flavored and marketing towards kids and they were creating new users not somebody using it to to quit smoking tobacco. I should not have value judgment. I see people doing it. And i think less of what i do know this. You can't see their face. Ernest preferable to tobacco and i give them that. It's just the way they went about doing it. Instead of trying to just look at the market of people they could cure from tobacco smoking. They were looking at a bigger trying to create users. People want to do it. That's personal freedom. Whatever they wanna do. I'm fine i'm good. I hope it does not judgmental so. I'm trying i'm trying. I'm trying. i'm trying and it's a contraption to isn't it and what do you do it's like metal in you but you're right we all have our no sorkin. What's is it a look metal contraption. I've seen ones that have a usb connector in that you plug it in charge at. This is hard for me. I don't i. Honestly i. I'm a lotta when it comes to being or any of these kinds of i mean i don't know anything but look at. It's good if people are going to quit tobacco we'll say that just you know you don't need to instill a new addiction from scratch..

Hey adam hello there. Why don't you start by telling us. Because it's such a neat idea. That kind of showcases both sides of this tell us about what united airlines is. Yes this is a fascinating example. And it's especially interesting to me because it's it's a a. I'm not sure how to say this in the right way. It's a non-state actor right. It's not a. It's not a government using this approach right so united airlines out of desire both to encourage people to get vaccinated against covid nineteen and also a great deal of self interest after a lot of conversations internally what they adopted. Was this idea that if that anybody who flew and who signed up for mileage plus which is their frequent flyer loyalty program you know you get miles points for every time you fly and uploaded their vaccination card in the us. You get a little card that says you know people sign the pharmacist. Who ever sign says. Yes you got your shots. Bright would be entered into a sweepstakes a lottery and the prize.

The united flies in united's like super first class up in the front of the plane that nobody ever gets. Cause they close the curtain. Where there's good food. And i don't know really nice stuff. It's really nice. I wouldn't know about. I don't know i've only heard rumors. Apparently it's pretty great and so that that became the inducement. What united wanted to do is say yes. We want people to fly again. We want people to get vaccinated. We want people find united. Here's the reward. the you might win these fabulous prizes.

"A you know a away for a new hire i i went into the ops said worse and worse jeff i just did his I'm seen him like Three weeks just finished up his training with me. All you didn't hear. Yeah you get hired at united like what i just. You know that just really ovalles is okay. I got to get the heck out like what's wrong with this picture. Yes just just was a new era translates the now he's And i own sure what his background was that allowed him to move that quickly but nonetheless yadda kind of kicked me in the right to within the last couple of questions would rather fly piper cessna piper as i have as i have told others Remember boeing to make a high winger if they did. It'd be a bully. If you add to be a passenger on a cr j or an er j what would you choose. Estimate even easy writer. What about if it was a one. Seventy five pretty comfortable. 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. 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.

"But Traffic pattern procedures in landings in there every once in a while so Maneuvers like slow flight installs st turns so kind of The no i would say top of the list would be traffic pattern. Procedures in landings particularly short field or software. Leaning is also soft and Or they just get mixed up. Getting back into the pattern is recheck. Ride without a doubt top of the list is holding patterns and after that would be a some wanted approaches. Problem usually announces approach. Either step down. Blew through the and commercial Same thing landings pattern procedures and every once in a while on the new for big usually. It's it's the same thing back in the in the airport area pattern. What about coming up to the more like eight delivery often. No no. I do not do very often. Especially now that the airlines when they are hiring which they are now are usually getting Gals that are trying to get. Atp get hired right so This usually happens but still get them every once in a while and a lot of times. It has to do with clarity. With the aircraft's time in the airplane. I think you could probably speak to that right. So if you haven't flown airplane and we are doing a single engine. I less or just just a regular unless you're on the base and we need to get this thing slowed down and you go plastic question. It's not It's just because you're not as familiar with your claim that you have been flying with whatever regular job you've been doing to time or or get authors commercial pilot transition the degree it was for me. It was very difficult to find the time to fly to prepare for the check ride. It wasn't so hard to learn the systems. Because i mean system those kind of systems in a. They're not very complex. You know they're pretty simple. You can pretty much read the manual and know that in a couple of days that we studied pretty hard but the flying part was definitely especially because at the time i was doing like ten on four off and were northeast ohio in the wintertime. We got the check writing. I think the runway was closed for half the day. If i remember correct correctly because of snow and then we could push it off near the check. Those mess right. Yeah like the runway was was full. Yeah it was. Yeah all the allback conditions going into. Luckily it cleared up for us. But i think only had one or two flight one or two flights in the airplane before it took the check ride and never felt comfortable enough to take a check. I but it's kinda like the we'll see how this goes. I need to get this done Luckily everything went well but it was a. It's awfully really hard. Kinda go back and learn to fly that airplane. 'cause airplanes are very different. I was pc twelve which is much different than what we're flying but it's still going a little bit faster you gotta slow down like it's just your mindset is very different in a multi engine plane was just as as crazy and i'm glad it's over with now there's a lot of stress at checkout but it went well and here we are talking about it so pretty well did yeah other than other than the heat or not tripping freezing to death that was overall pretty good Pretty good check right now. I think we're both happy when that was over and we could land and be like. Let's go inside. I do remember that we were just Darren peel ourselves out of the airplane frozen. I got a section for you. Want this i'm gonna do rapid-fire section for you and then talk a little bit. What what you got going on on the side as well from your united hustle. The dp and other stuff you're doing so you keep busy. That's for sure. But i got a rapid fire questions section and it's just aviation theme questions and you answer the first question. Are you answer. The question of the first thought that comes to your head thanks. Okay all right. Oh too hard you ready. let's go. What's your favorite airplane of all time. A long delay. I know i'm gonna go triple seven. I flew the trouble. Seven percents For about three or so years in it was be my overall my favorite of all favorite corporate jet. The lear lear jets probably illing clear. Sixty or seventy series would be pretty awesome. They check out in. I'm sorry say again. Favorite plane to do a check ride in. So what's the ugliest airplane you've ever seen Something i know. I was gonna was like wait. A second. asterik is not a beautiful airplane. Just a truck that's for sure. Yeah what's something you wish you knew before. He became a pilot boy I guess the The financial side in time side of the you know the commitment was require ino. But because you don't you just go right into in just trying to figure it out as you go along. Sometimes people have a very in maybe a better plan but yeah that's One who's been the most influential person in your career. She's always been she was. She's always been there. She always wants to know still today. She always wanna know where we're traveling city. I'm laying over what i'm doing in the early on through flight school and everything she was you know whether it was soon senate mia in quick letter or anything. She was encouragement throughout the process. What's something artists at one person in there. Who is one person in the industry. You'd like to meet most could be someone like bob. Hoover charles lindbergh or could be a sullen bird or someone. That's alive still today. Probably lindbergh or the right brothers. I would love to bring Down dinner with them and just talk about those early years. Geez just what they had to go through to be able to join the luxuries. That you and i enjoy now. We love to see their reaction to getting on like eight hundred fifty or seventy seven and seeing the technology that's airplanes. What the heck we had no idea. Yeah yeah exactly. That would kind of probably defaulting instrument. But if you had that opportunity don't think any any pilot would pass it on. What's your favorite thing about aviation freedom being able to To just have leon on the freedom that it gives. You is the hardest approach. You've ever flown. Ooh.

"A line year Trying to get everybody settled down. It's something that's gotta be tough because like we said it's you have to perform like you can't baby someone you can't force feed them information If you do you're only setting them up for failure in the future. You know it's like you need to fix it now and teach them the right way or or or sometimes fail them. One question i wanted to know does what is the faa's involvement after you kind of have your training. Do they do a yearly checkups. Do they see your pass fail. Ray and all you blake as stewart. Looks like you had a ninety nine percent pass rate when you did a bump that down to eighty five or what. What's their involvement with you when they're done with the training out there their interaction with me is they don't they don't keep tracking that early. If they do not never been told that. I'm sure they keep an eye on that. They probably do have a pass fail that they can pull off pressure they do and i don't i certainly don't keep track of it yourself but what they do is They're required to come out at least once a year sometimes twice a year for vacation. So they'll come out in sitting on the check ride. Obviously they're gonna find an airplane. That's gonna fit three of us so if it's a private pilot chair gardner one fifty two. That's not happening. But if it's in on in a twin like a multi engine rating or your atp that could easily come out in the same room So that's that's something they do at least once a year. Sometimes i'll do it twice a year and they also have some other things that were required to do like return training and i touch base with them quite often just to give them a heads up on certain things that i see out in the field because let's face it. The faa inspectors. Just don't get a chance to get out there. There are already protests treated themselves with with their daily stuff so so the moral of that story you just told. Is that if you don't want the faa to check ride only take check rides on one fifty two. Would you do for your commercial aired initials fine do not need a complex aircraft or larger phone to take those charite so if anyone wants to get anything out of this podcast. It's a one fifty two. That's what i got out of this. Yeah yeah you do. Not what the sas now actually you can imagine. It's a it's a bit of a tour to try and get Trying to get the student or applicants hold off on a new prep pilot checker tomorrow on one. Seventy two and Just put a things because the f. as gonna come out right were with us. Yeah i don't know if i'd enjoy that too much like i'm not feeling too good today. Stewart's iran how 'bout A month for now in of course they're usually okay. Thank spy in about ten minutes later. I get phone call from the by a store We're going to cancel that. Check writing as you think. The faa likes having that kind of like nervous power over people that they like. Whenever the phase name was pulled up it merely kind of has people cringe and wanna run away. I mean i don't know. I don't doubt that's what they wanna go for. But that's kind of reputation. They have no think they they don't mean they and they do their normal guys and gals they are normal people. That are just trying to do their deal in. It's unfortunate that there certain times that you've kind of that image or mentality about. Oh you're a but all in all they're they're just doing their job. They're not. I tell it can try to look watching me watch you. They're not a. This tank is sitting over the corner of the room but the fa batch. John is not have any bearing on the outcome of this shepherd trusting in a hunger here to tell you and everybody else's listening if i can done with the check ride I usually walk over and say did really nice job immunity. Brief this this this swimming past they just can. You're not like okay. They're just out there to monitor and make sure that. I'm i'm checking. All the boxes that are required to do what. I'm supposed to conducting net impractical test. Yeah you say that but even if aid shows up for a latitude check. I'm still like i don't wanna do that. Yeah yeah exactly old down in on the jump seat at the united absolutely yeah. You're like i'm senior. I'm going to drop this trip. Someone else can take right. Unfortunately we don't always get that that long-term noticed her notification. No definitely not in pry for good reason because everyone would never fly it in the trip would never get done so your whole experiences an examiner has it been as good as as good as you would have thought from. The beginning. hasn't been different. I know we kind of touched on a little bit about who you are as an examiner but the whole process and journal. Are you getting out of it. What you thought you would as been beneficial and kind of as impactful as you thought overall. Yes i i really. I really have. We still do. I still do thoroughly enjoy. It is just a great. And i likes next. You know being able to have the airline experience and then be able to come back in constantly be in and out of join the asian be involved in general aviation aircraft and just the test side of it because even though we're not allowed to teach or instruct during a check ride a debrief is is where it can really astles amass information in being able to give these people Something that they may not have had the day before. I showed up so it really has overall been a great experience in in the same thing goes with working for the vise the recommended these guys and gals check right being able to do back to them debrief there what what instruction they're giving or not giving her in possibly change so good time with it along. Did it take for you to feel comfortable giving check rides. I'm sure there are some kind of imposter syndrome. I when you're doing it. You're like i am. I giving this haven't been cfi forever. I'm an airline pilot. Was it a kind of a learning experience. When he started took a couple of check rides to really feel comfortable or was it kind of a natural fit when he first started. No it wasn't a natural fit. And i wasn't checker trans states so they had evaluation Experience to be able to to give line checks as well as we at that level but nothing is just like being a new c. or being a new pilot until you go on that first. Pse cross country and maybe get into a little bit of weather or get turned around a little bit. that's not until you really know So you know the duration of time that popped in my brain when you said that his probably a solid year I don't know how many check rides i did in that year..

"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 I said, Well, if you feel all three, Adam, where three votes and if I go in person, I have four votes will hang and see you received unsolicited mail in ballots or did you receive Ballot request cards unsolicited. I never recorded. No, no, no, I got that They may. Okay, so, but what I'm saying is there are they actual ballots or are they Absentee ballot request forms, which a lot of different groups will send out which is legal, by the way for them to send. There are actual ballots. Send me a picture. Okay. I find when I get home. I look if you actually got three actual ballots, That's a big deal. If you got a request forms that look a lot like ballots but are not actual ballots, which marketing materials for political action groups. Then that's par for the course. So no, I'll send my fact. I'm I just bring them down. They give it to your radio station. You can We have the whole building's locked down cause Cove it, But all right, no problem. Yeah, but no, seriously. Gotta pav serious.

If their ballot request forms. Not a problem. Over the weekend. That thing happened. Would you see that chick to put that video out? Psycho? Look at this. Therefore, it's a pizza ballot with Trump's face on it. And it's an absurd video. It's a marketing piece, obviously from from Ah, right leaning pack, and it's a It's A It's not a ballot. It's AH, marketing material that is inclusive of A small card, which is the state. You know, I will re question an absentee ballot. Which is perfectly legal to send out to people. She was she did, she would should look it up and as results, you put this video out and then like Jimmy Kimmel, Bette Midler, they all retweeted it. Look like the jackasses. They usually look like Uh, anyway. Check this out. United Airlines. This is The New York Post version that originated from Bloomberg. United Airlines packs its planes. Its charter flights with young, white blonde, blue eyed female crew members, all chosen for their sexual allure. Whenever the National Football League and Major League Baseball take charter flights that, according to a new lawsuit This is delicious. I love this story. All right, so You have a lawsuit, and it was filed by two flight attendants. A black woman who has worked for the airline for 28 years, and a Jewish woman has worked there for 34 years. They say they have repeatedly asked to be assigned to the sports charter flights. Which is is a big contract. Obviously he's you know, a lot of money. United is final of these NFL teams to get thrown planes there sent, you know they're full charter flight. And maybe people don't realize is so if you want a private jet You can you can, you can do like NetJets or and they have a few of those different companies or because this is obviously a big problem in most of our lives, or you can literally charter an entire jet of any size basically threw the major airlines Yeah. Yeah, And so that that is the contract The United Airlines has for NFL when you charter a jet. You get to make choices. Whether it is NetJets. Or it is ah, a larger plane through a contract with United Airlines and those choices. R run the gamut. And so obviously when that is being requested, as it is, is pointed out in the story that that is the request, according to United Airlines that they're getting from the teams. Then chances are they're going to go on. Cause Here's the thing there's not. There's not a discrimination clause on hotness. Sorry. That's the reality of it. And let me tell you something. I've been. I've been very lucky on Nana Kate on one occasion, each To both be on a NetJet. Right? Not not it, Mike..
