To kick off NBAA’s celebration of Black History Month, three African-American members of the business aviation community share their professional experiences and offer advice for the next generation. “Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask questions just to learn about what you don’t know,” said Mike Johnson with the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Office of Aeronautics. “Just have conversations with people, listening to their experiences so that you can learn things you can use to move forward in your own career.”
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Mike Johnson, UAS program planner with the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Office of Aeronautics
Jordan Larkins, a Part 91 and 135 pilot
Shanita Polk, a Cessna Citation Excel first officer
Three winners of NBAA's NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Outstanding Achievement & Leadership Award discuss the lessons they have learned as they ascended in their careers and how every scheduler can apply those principles.
