Today, the airline industry faces an unprecedented slowdown as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Aviation will rebound but it will take time and support from everyone in the industry to overcome this together. While a 5-leg day of flying might not be realistic for the next few months, we will be back on track soon! Flying has been, and will always be, an exciting career. Hopefully, this video gives you a little insight into what my daily life is like.

You guys asked for a “day in the life” video, so here it is! We flew 220 passengers on 3 airplanes between:

  • Chicago, IL to Appleton, WI (AA3366)
  • Appleton, WI to Chicago, IL (AA3366 Deadhead)
  • Chicago, IL to Lexington, KY (AA3980)
  • Lexington, KY to Chicago, IL (AA3980)
  • Chicago, IL to Dubuque, IA (AA3904)

    I can’t thank you enough for your videos and educational support especially in Boldmethod. You have inspired me to get my instrument and commercial ratings! Continued success. I moved from NJ to Orlando to get more flight time and I love Chicago! Look forward to meeting you one day!
