Podcast: NBAA’s New PREFLIGHT Campaign Asks – Are You At Your Best When No One Is Looking?

March 7, 2022

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
