Recorded on July 13th, 2021
On Flight 83 of the Squawk Ident podcast we explore the recent controversy with a new FAA policy that limits for compensation in aircraft that hold special airworthiness certificates, including limited, experimental and primary category aircraft. We discuss how an FAA Drone advisory committee has recommended that airlines replace sexist terms with more gender neutral ones. Are Masks going away? The federal mask mandate is set to expire in September, how will that affect our operations here in the US? We also look at the mystery of why a 46 year old Rhoades Express B737-200 cargo aircraft, (operating as Transair Flight 810) ditched off the coast of Honolulu on July 2nd, 2021. We also take a look back at Pan Am 6 and its skipper Captain Richard Ogg.
