Fly Maui

Apr 20, 2020

Retired Alaska Airlines Capt. Kerri Ballard joins us to continue our discussion on preventing bad habits while flying. Kerri offers examples and real-life stories from her years of flight instruction and flying for the airlines. What are some of Kerri’s encounters with wake turbulence? What did she consistently see as bad habits in the flight deck? What did she learn from the airlines that she wishes she had known as a flight instructor? We hope the stories and discussion offers inspiration to become a safer pilot.
