Podcast: Ramping Up International Operations

April 5, 2021

As more companies resume or increase international travel, how should aircraft operators prepare for such trips in a rapidly changing environment, which includes not only COVID-19-mitigation measures, but also changes to the North Atlantic tracks system and implementation of Brexit? “Plan, plan, plan – early and often,” said John Tuten, chief pilot for Honeywell International. “Look at every scenario and really spend the time to work through all the details that are involved with the trip, whether you do it in-house or have an external trip-planning company.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Shawn Scott, co-founder and principal, Scott IPC
  • Steve Thorpe, senior captain and director of standards and training, Merck
  • John Tuten, chief pilot, Honeywell International
