United Aviate Academy – Better or Worse than College Programs? Episode 103
United Airlines just launched its own flight school. Does United Aviate Academy offer a better option for would-be pilots than college aviation programs?
Greg, John and Todd share first impressions. The program appears to be more expensive than other ways of earning pilot credentials and stops short of ATP certification.
They talk about why the program may be better or worse than college programs and private flight schools.
The new road rage? The Flight Safety Detectives also talk about the continued incidents of cabin disruptions caused by passengers who refuse to comply with federal mask mandates. Flights are being turned back, risking the safety of crew and passengers.
From the WTF files, Greg shares a recent incident where a pilot in NC swerved to miss a coyote, left the runway and hit a sign. What would you do – hit the sign or take out the coyote?
