Fair, Reasonable, Transparent. That’s all we want right? The FBO business is near and dear to all of us. 

In this Episode, FBO Manager Randy Pitti tells us about how his company has taken a stance against Fees.

At the center of the unreasonable fees issue, returning guest Anthony Tamburrini gives us an insider update on how ACI has fared since taking over from Signature about a year ago.

Episode 015 | The Millionaires' Unit

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 8.28.35 AM.jpg



Enjoy a deep dive into the documentary filmmaking process with Darroch Greer and Ron King as they discuss their film The Millionaires' Unit. 

The Film tells the unsung story of a group of Yale college students who took the initiative to learn to fly in preparation for America’s entry into World War I and became the founding squadron of the U.S. Naval Air Reserve.

The award winning film’s VOD release date of February 15, 2018 was chosen to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of First Yale Unit member Albert D. Sturtevant, the first U.S. Naval Aviator killed in combat, when his plane went down in the North Sea on February 15, 1918.

Narrated by Academy Award® nominated actor Bruce Dern, grandnephew of one of the aviators, the feature length documentary charts the romantic, little known story of the origins of American airpower and features very rare archival footage and thrilling dogfighting sequences filmed air to air with replica WW1 planes, some with original engines.

Inspired by Marc Wortman’s book The Millionaires’ Unit the film has been developed and produced by descendants of the First Yale Unit, including filmmaker Ron King, producers Harry Davison and Mike Davison, and narrator Bruce Dern who are all grandnephews and grandsons of FYU members.



The relationship between instructor and student is paramount. As is the relationship between you motivation and your ultimace success. Businessman and friend Marc Dean joins us to talk about his experience getting his Private Pilot License. Things weren’t right where he started and Marc’s gut feeling was that he wasn’t in the right place. Are you in the right place? Listen as we talk about common issues like: Student/Instructor relationship, Flight School vs. Flying Club, Concentrating on the process and craft vs. “beating the numbers.” 

Sometimes a little mentorship goes a long way. Marc needed some and I’m glad we met. 

Congrats to Brian Juarez for winning the iPad Airway Manual Case! Look forward to more Patron and non-Patron giveaways in the future!

If you’re listening to this podcast, I’m guessing you’ve heard of Shaesta Waiz. But on the off chance you haven’t, she's the youngest woman to fly around the world. Solo. Only 6 WOMEN (of any age) have ever done it before her, in the history of aviation. But she didn’t do it for glory, she did it to help children all over the world become interested in STEM concepts, and in aviation as a career. 

She is the first Afghan woman to earn a civilian pilot’s license. 

She’s the first in her family to attend college.

She’s the founder and President of Dreams Soar Inc. A nonprofit she founded still in her 20s to help women all over the world land careers in STEM related fields. Her organization provides inspiration, outreach, and scholarships for young women with dreams of careers in fields involving Science Technology Engineering, and Math.

From her birth in an Afghan refugee camp, she was groomed for a traditional life as a mother and founder of a large family, more than the founder of a non-profit with global reach. But she decided to break the mold and travel the world encouraging young women to do the same.

Although she does still love to cook...
