RFT 403: MORE Aviation Videos!

This week we continue with our offer of FREE aviation videos. Here you will find videos that will help you prepare for a career in aviation or help you prepare for your airline checkride. These normally sell for $49.95 and, once again, you can stream these for free for the duration of the pandemic. The subjects are How to Get an Airline Job Airline Interview Power Successful Simulator Training Supercharge Your Scan Turbojet Systems Made Easy B737-300 Checkride Maneuvers B727 Practice Oral B727 Checkride Maneuvers On to another subject: the topic of RACE, especially as it applies to African-Americans, is occupying the news. According to OBAP, African-Americans are 13 percent of the American population but only account for 3 percent of professional pilots. Of the approximately 200 aviation professionals interviewed on the Ready For Takeoff Podcast, 18 of my guests have been African-American. That comes out to 9 percent. It’s less than 13 percent, but a LOT more than 3 percent, and I feel really blessed to have connected with these professionals. Here’s the list of the episodes, which include 2 Tuskegee Airmen. 374 Christina Thumper Hopper 366 Walter Watson 298 Keith Reeves 292 Gregory Poole 267 Beth Powell 266 Jason Harris 259 LeRoy Homer Foundation 241 Frank Macon 240 Willie Daniels 190 George Hardy 139 Otis Hooper 109 Todd Curtis 099 Lawrence Chambers 073 Brian Settles 068.5 Karl Minter 045 Dick Toliver 017 Donnie Cochran 015 Brenda Robinson These are some amazing people, who in many cases overcame extreme prejudice and hardship. Do me, and yourself, a favor and pick one or two of these episodes to listen to this week. If you want to reach out to any of them, you can send an email to and I’ll forward it for you. Here’s a link to what should be an excellent town hall at 1500 Eastern Standard Time today.
