Check out Aviation Coronavirus News for breaking news on the aviation industry.

Avination, welcome back to the Pilot to Pilot podcast. Today, I am interviewing someone who has played a major role in my life, my dad. My dad is currently a major airline pilot and has seen a lot over his career. From deregulation, multiple airline mergers, 9/11, the financial crisis of 2008 and now, coronavirus. Ironically enough, my dad and I talk about how we don't think the industry would ever see a downturn as bad as 9/11 or 2008. We couldn't have been more wrong, it's crazy how fast things can change. Just remember this too is a temporary moment in what will be a long and great career.

Have faith and stay safe!

Avination, I wish this was a regular Tuesday interview-style podcast. But, with Coronavirus doing its best to disrupt our economy, health care, and aviation industries, I figured it was necessary to have an episode (maybe more) about the FACTS.

We talked about where the industry is today, what we have been through in the past, and what the future could hold.
