Ladies and Gentleman welcome aboard Flight 87 of the Squawk Ident podcast - 60 Knot Overtake. On today’s flight, I am proud to be joined by a fantastic Squawk Ident crew member Captain Roger. Our journey today will have us discussing how Wichita, Kansas became the home of competing Cessna and Beechcraft manufacturing. We hear some ATC audio from a 60 knot overtake situation into DFW and we also explore how the U.S. Department of Defense recently informed several U.S airlines that it has activated the Civil Reserve Air Fleet (CRAF). Our “Legacy Airlines” Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) have also had a recent update to include such destinations as Ramstein AB, Sigonella NAB, Bahrain AB, & Kuwait City, just to name a few. We also just found out that Piedmont, PSA, and Envoy Airlines have announced the largest pilot retention bonus program in airline history. We will find out about the EMAS systems and how to find out if your runway has it in place. This and more on Flight 87 of the Squawk Ident podcast.
