Leadership From the Cockpit
Capt. Bob Schneberger (US Airways, Ret.) remembers when he first laid eyes on the 1934 Stinson Reliant SR-5A in the summer of 2013 at the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh fly-in and convention.
The former Eastern, Trump Shuttle, and US Airways pilot immediately fell in love with the airplane and introduced himself to the Stinson owner, Keith Swalheim, to inquire about purchasing the airplane. As a result, Schneberger became the next in a long line of the airplane’s titleholders.
As the largest airline pilot union in the world, ALPA is uniquely committed to safety, in large part because of our founding members' determination to build safety into the core structure of the Association. For more than 85 years, generations of airline pilot representatives have maintained the integrity of ALPA’s motto, “Schedule with Safety”.
Happy April Fool’s Day! On a day typically filled with practical jokes and hoaxes, we’re taking a look at five amazing aviation world records. No joking around here; these pilots set out to achieve the impossible, and made it happen. (Really!)
