Squawk 7000 – Special Episode Recovering Irish Aviation
Welcome to this special episode of Squawk 7000, this time; we are taking a slightly different approach to the podcast in that we are bringing you a panel of pilots who between them have extensive experience in aviation in Ireland and overseas and who also share valuable insight into the future of aviation.
There is a growing sense of urgency amongst those whose career is in aviation; by contrast, there seems to be little urgency and few plans from those advising the government on how to recover the aviation sector and the jobs it supports.
A group of aviation professionals have founded Recover Irish Aviation. It provides a voice for the aviation community in Ireland following the economic devastation caused by the events of the last 12 months.
Joining us from Recover Irish Aviation are four Captains, Louise Gilroy actively flying at the moment, Simon Moody awaiting a type conversion which has stalled as a result of the pandemic; Sarah Louise Gibbons, who was a Captain on the RJ85 and a former Chief Flying Instructor pre covid and Daniel Langan a former Captain on the RJ85 pre covid now awaiting a transition to the A320 as a First Officer.
