Last weekend, Asiana Airlines Flight 214 struck a sea wall at the edge of San Francisco’s International Airport. Miraculously, and I say this after seeing some of the amateur video footage of the crash, everyone one survived the event save for two people.
While the NTSB is busy trying to piece together the events that led to this crash, I wanted to get a pilot’s perspective on life in the cockpit. Our guest, Trip Marshall, has flown in and out of San Francisco on several occasions and kindly walks us through the series of events & activities that take place in the cockpit prior to landing.
Through conversation, knowledge is shared. I trust you’ll find this episode/conversation as educational as I did.
About Trip Marshall
Trip Marshall grew up on and around airports – his dad ran one for several years. He started taking flying lessons in 1999 and became a flight instructor in 2005. As an instructor, he worked as Check Pilot for a PART 141 school, and then went one to serve as Chief Instructor for 1 year.
He spent three years as a pilot for a regional airline. His primary aircrafts were the EMB-120 Brasilia and the Bombardier CRJ200/700/900. He left the world of regional airlines late last year to further the growth of Flying Software Labs, a software company he’s a partner in. Flying Software Labs and their MyFlight™ software product offerings are designed and developed for flight schools and other aviation businesses.
Trip currently lives in Salt Lake City with his wife, two children and a dog.
