Podcast: Planning Tech Stops in the COVID Era

Business aircraft operators flying overseas continue to face virus-related challenges that can vary greatly from country to country and require careful planning and continuous monitoring to overcome. “Passenger testing is probably one of the biggest hurdles and challenges – trying to figure out who needs to be tested, when they need to be tested,” said John Tuten, chief pilot for Honeywell International. “Then, as far as tech stops are concerned, the biggest challenge is deciding which country will allow you to enter from another country.”

  • Russell Bunger, Lead Mission Advisor, Universal Weather & Aviation
  • Brandon Sladecek, Master Trip Support Specialist, Universal Weather & Aviation
  • John Tuten, Chief Pilot, Honeywell International
