Our main topic today is an interview with Tom Wachowski of the Private Jet Podcast.

  • Tom discusses currency in the planes he flies, some of the technologies used and the rules surrounding them.
  • Tom and Eric discuss the differences between being current and being proficient.
  • Letters of Authorization and other things needed to stay in compliance with corporate jets, which are more difficult than smaller planes.
  • Tom's career path into Corporate Jets.
  • How the scheduling works for corporate pilots: scheduling ahead of time versus being on call.
  • Rick asked about plane ownership versus renting, which led to a discussion on using corporate jets and the organization No Plane No Gain, which crunches the numbers on why corporations need planes to save time and money.
