Podcast: Celebrating Black History Month

Feb. 1, 2021

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
