Before anyone dismisses “management” personnel as a bunch of replaceable desk jockies, let me tell you about my office at the airline I was laid off from. I sat in a cubicle in what we called “safety row.” I went to college for aviation and have a dispatcher certificate. (Cont.)
The woman on one side of my cube went to Riddle and she’s a commercial rated pilot. On my other side was a former flight attendant. Across from me was an A&P and former USAF maintainer. Down the row was a new Purdue grad going to Blackhawk flight school for the National Guard.
There’s a lot of people under that management umbrella with aviation in their veins. Model airplanes and sectional charts decorating our cubicles. Passion for safe and efficient air travel.
