Preflighting an aircraft takes place when no one’s looking, and yet, it’s a critical step before flying. NBAA’s new PREFLIGHT initiative offers several steps for you to continually “preflight” yourself in the workplace – so you can be your best professional self – especially if your resources are limited. “You should always be seeking areas to identify for improvement,” says Mike Whannell, chief pilot for a small flight operation. “[That] means embracing ‘to err is human’ and that you should never be satisfied with your most recent performance.”
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
KK Harvey, chief pilot at Lionheart Holdings and a member of the NBAA Small Flight Operations Subcommittee
Mike Whannell, CAM, chief pilot of Jack Henry & Associates and a member of the NBAA Small Flight Operations Subcommittee
Throughout February, NBAA has marked Black History Month by recognizing the significant aviation contributions of African Americans and emphasizing the importance of ensuring our industry is open and welcoming to people from all backgrounds.
The FAA has been working with NBAA and others to address privacy concerns with the Privacy ICAO Address program (PIA), which recently was expanded beyond the contiguous U.S. to include overwater routes.
