When it comes to the need for speed… he’s the real deal.
As a fighter jet pilot for the United States Navy, for nearly 25 years, he flew the F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet and the F-16. He accrued almost 4,000 flight hours, over 700 carrier landings, and served as both a TOPGUN Instructor and Air Wing Operations Officer.
Today, this family man flies for one of the major airlines and hosts his own awesome podcast called, appropriately, “The Fighter Pilot Podcast.” There, he explores the fascinating world of air combat: the aircraft, the weapons systems, and most importantly–the people. And you should absolutely subscribe.
I’m excited to chat with this amazing man, and fellow podcast host, about all things jets, life in the skies, what it feels like to be in control of something moving 1,200 miles an hour… and what his experiences around the globe have taught him about life back here on Earth.
