"The thoughts and views expressed by Korry Franke on this podcast are his alone, completely independent of any United Airlines affiliation. United Airlines has not contributed or endorsed the content in any way.” 

in 2013, Korry Franke became the youngest captain then flying for United Airlines. Now, the pilot, author, and speaker merges his years of airline leadership experience with the creativity he's honed as an accomplished jazz pianist, the discipline he's developed as a two-time marathoner, and the real-world business acumen he's gained as a Penn State University MBA graduate to lead people and organizations on life-changing journeys toward success and fulfillment. When Korry isn't flying or focusing on inspiring others to embrace their own captain's mindset, he's usually hiking with his wife, reading books to his young daughter, or volunteering with charities such as United We Care, where he serves on the employee relief fund's Board of Directors.
