What I’m feeling is indescribable. I just met the most remarkable woman that saved the lives of 148 people, on April 17, 2018. Southwest Airlines Captain, Tammie Jo Shults one of the first Naval female aviators of the F/A18 was incredible. We developed an immediate connection and even listened to snippets of my podcast The Traffic Pattern. In November of last year I sat down with air traffic controller Cory Davids from New York Center which assisted Southwest flight 1380. Season 1 Episode 3. SWA1380 suffered a catastrophic engine failure mid flight and miraculously landed in Philadelphia. Today, Tammie and I discussed the events of April 17th and her latest book, Nerves of Steel: How I Followed My Dreams, Earned My Wings, and Faced My Greatest Challenge. It is currently available for pre-order on Amazon. Huge thanks to Tammie Jo, and W Publishing Group! Thank you to so many for the words of encouragement and genuine support.
