Podcast: Staff Scheduling in the COVID Era

As business aviation flight departments continue to adapt to the COVID-19 environment, many have reduced staffing levels to minimize the risk of exposing other employees and spreading the virus.

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

  • Don Chupp, president and CEO of Fireside Partners
  • Greg Hamelink, chair of the NBAA Maintenance Committee and senior manager of flight operations and maintenance at Stryker Corp.
