A CENTURY HAS BEEN SCORED, David A. Banmiller – President of the Falcon Group

In today’s 100th milestone episode, who better to have as our guest other than ‘The Airline Doctor’ himself. I am talking about David A. Banmiller – President of the Falcon Group based out of California and Ireland. Probably the best man to have around in a crisis and the Author of Turbulence. A book that tells many stories and takes you through so many experiences as well as what CEO’s cannot say to media or the flying public. The list of airlines that have benefitted from David’s experience is too long to mention. He is the ‘Red’ Adair of Chapter 11 Carriers. A man who knows that you need a fast brain and a slow mouth when under pressure. David knows where the calm zone is — and I am not talking about Gibney’s in Malahide – Dublin!
