Welcome on board Flight 125 of the Squawk Ident Podcast - Seniority is not Everything, It's the Only Thing

Today’s episode marks the first Squawk Ident flight of season 5. 

Alex and I recently had the honor in sitting down with a truly remarkable aviator who’s journey in aviation started in the early 1970s. That is when our featured guest’s decorated military veteran father paid the steep cost of $600, for him to achieve his Private Pilot Certificate. With the passion for aviation growing within him, he went on to become an aircraft washer, a line fueler, a Gold Seal flight instructor, a trained dispatcher and 727 flight engineer, a corporate pilot, and an airline pilot as well. From flying Apaches, Turbo Commanders, and Twin Otters to commanding DC-10’s, Super-80’s, 75s/76s, and 737’s, his remarkable journey lead him to build upon an aviation career that has seen many challenges. In 2013, at the age of 65 years young, he retired from American Airlines.

I was honored to be invited into his home, where he and his son, (a 3rd generation pilot currently flying for “Sandpiper Regional”), sat down with me to share his story.  This is an interview from the 8th of January, 2023, with retired American Airlines Captain Greg Daigle and his son Alex.
