Flight 48 - Airport Bums & Bandeirantes

By Av8rTony

Recorded on the 13th of July, 2020 On Episode 48 of Squawk Ident, I am joined in the mobile Av8r Studio on the 7th floor of the Georgetown - Marriott Hotel in Washington D.C. by an aviator that is sure to impress. His four plus decade journey in aviation started out with a ride on a cross country flight at the age of 10, where he joined his father on one of his flight lessons. From airport bum, to mechanic's helper, and later A&P and Airline Line Pilot, his journey is filled with stories that focus on friendships, loyalty, and opportunity.  His leadership and experience has been a true inspiration to learn from.  Having the opportunity to fly with Captain Dave is an experience that I am very grateful for. His journey in aviation is sure to inspire.  references:  144th Fighter Wing - Air National Guard West Air Airlines EMB-110 Bandeirantes  Jetstream 31/41 Reno Air Episode 48 chapters: [03:00] - Introducing Captain David LeTourneau  [05:25] - CRM with Dave  [08:42] - Dave's First Flight  [15:30] - Test Pilot [20:00] - Loyalty [25:00] - Home of the 144th [33:05] - Scabs?
