8:30 - 9:30 Zombies, Vampires, and Superheroes

 Presented By  Pat Daily

Sometimes aviation begins to feel as if you’re living through a season of The Walking Dead  – ¬ the enthusiasm has been killed, the lifeblood of the flight department seems to have been drained, yet the undead people keep going through the motions, waiting for the professional equivalent of a bullet to the head.  In this session, Pat Daily will invoke lessons learned from pop culture myths and relate them to real-world issues in aviation and lessons for flight departments today.
