Change is good. It leads to innovation and in aviation, hopefully a cheaper, safer, faster, and better flying experience. Tonight's show dealt with the changing environment in aviation. Al and Marc talked about scheduled 135 operating companies and other "uber-like entities and how they are changing the industry. The conversation moved to new student pilot rules, which get in the way of an old and wonderful tradition of soloing on a pilot's 16th birthday. And then on to a discussion of how Icon Aircraft is working to set a risk mitigation precedent with a new buyer contract with many interesting caveats.
Marc and Al finished strong by checking in with sometimes co-host, Tim Rylko, who is about to complete his three month training with his new employer. In a matter of a couple weeks, Tim will be flying with passengers in an EMB 175. Very exciting!
Thanks for listening. Blue Skies and Tailwinds.
