Flight 133 - Sick or FIT‪?‬ Squawk Ident - an Aviation Podcast

    • Aviation

Recorded on 02MAY2023



Welcome on board Flight 133 of the Squawk Ident Podcast - Sick or Fit - Recorded from the mobile Av8r Sound Studios, high a-top the 8th floor of the Sonesta Hotel in beautiful downtown Columbus, OH.



On today’s flight I am excited to be joined by a gaggle of the excellent Squawk Ident co-hosts. Captain Roger, Alex, Terry, Kyle and I discuss the start of the summer travel season, adverse weather, diversion choices, and “Bingo Fuel”. We also discuss a common choice that many airline pilot’s make to move to a cheaper state in an effort to achieve a higher quality of life. From flight training, to sick calls, to equipment changes, we explore our lives out on the flight line.



We also explore a headline that has been everywhere lately, ‘American Airlines Pilots Vote to Strike”. Did you ever wonder what that means? Are pilots refusing to fly the line? Not really. We will discuss this and much more on this episode of the Squawk Ident podcast.



So sit back, relax, and enjoy the rest of the flight.
