In our very first interview on Squawk Ident, Av8rTony has a wonderful discussion with Captain Roger. They discuss everything from how Roger started down the path of an aviation career to the many hurtles he had to overcome. From student pilot to multi-engine instructor, from airline furloughs to cargo operations, we even talk about a bird strike or two.
