Episode 3 of the Learning To Live Podcast is all about aviation! With two interviews this week, we follow Captain McCasky, a passionate pilot who is now the Managing Director of Flight Training at a major airline, and Steve Butler, Maintenance Supervisor of Simulator Operations at the world's largest flight training center.  Capt. McCasky walks through his "becoming a pilot" story, and he gives advice for overcoming the many challenges in that process. Then, Steve Butler talks about falling into the flight simulator world through the Air Force, moving to United Airlines, and gives tips on becoming a simulator technician!
