Summary
123 Sometimes pilots see something wrong, like a plane taxiing and pushing a tow bar, or with a pitot tube cover on, or in the runup area with a baggage door open. In these situations, something is clearly wrong, and pilots must speak up. But the situation is more tricky when you see a pilot head off to do something you know is risky, but which they might be successful at. Still you should speak up.

Mental Health and Stress and Pilots
In the news, Max talks about electric aircraft at AirVenture. Then he talks about the rate of depression among pilots, two recent pilot suicide accidents, and two stories where the death of a family member or friend resulted in pilots having in one case a fatal accident, and in the other a pilot deviation. Here’s a link to an FAA page on depression writen by Glenn Stoutt, Jr, who’s an Aviation Medical Examiner. And this is the FAA’s Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners on Psychiatric Conditions – Use of Antidepressant Medications.

Hurricane Irma Relief – Remote Area Medical – Stan Brock Interview


Remote Area Medical (RAM) is working to deploy it’s fleet of aircraft to Puerto Rico, which will be the forward base from which their Cessna Caravan will fly supplies to the islands hardest hit by Hurricane Irma. RAM was founded over 30 years ago, and has helped provide medical services to over 100,000 people. They are looking for volunteer pilots and healthcare professionals to provide services in underserved areas in the U.S. and the Caribbean. They currently need pilots who can fly their Caravans and their King Air 200. You can find the Remote Area Medical webpage here and their Facebook page here. In this episode, we interview RAM founder Stan Brock about the organization, and learned how doctors, dentists, optometrists, and pilots can help the organization by volunteering their time, or donating money.
