    RIP The Aviation Industry (as we know it)

    The coronavirus pandemic has completely altered life for a large portion of the planets population, and as of this podcast (3/24/2020), is beginning to severely affect places in the United States, most notably New York City and it's surrounding area.

    Will things ever return to normal? Some words of caution, and some words of advice during this historic time for modern human civilization.
