Flight 49 - Vikings Take Flight

By Av8rTony

Recorded on 17th of July, 2020 On episode 49 of Squawk Ident Captain Roger and I have the honor of speaking with a pair of aviators that both have an impressive international footprint in aviation. They both started their aviation careers in Iceland and eventually came to America to build flight time in Cessnas and Pipers at a little flight school named Tailwind Flight Centre, LLC, in Chandler, Arizona.  Their journeys have since allowed them to build upon impressive resumes of flying positions around the world. They have flown with operators based in Austria, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, and Iceland. They share their accomplishments in aviation and what the future holds for them in the wake of this global pandemic with us. Join Captain Roger and me as we speak with some true Icelandic Vikings Sigurbjörn (Sibbi) Ragnarsson & Rúnar Ingi Ásgeirsson on this fantastic episode of Squawk Ident. reference: Euro Vison Song Contest  IMDb: Eurovison Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020)  Slátur  chapters: [04:10] Flying Vikings [07:50] Tailwind & Time Building [21:30] How JAA pilots licenses convert into FAA PPLs [42:20] Legacy Iceland and Furloughs [53:50] Hurtles to Overcome [1:01:30] Favorite Overnights [1:15:10] The Backup Plan [1:22:10] Slátur!
