TURBULENCE with Mr David A Banmiller, Retired Airline Executive and Author (intro)


No truer word to describe this year almost over – 2020.
From Crisis to Care has been a common thread running through many of our podcasts and digital events.

Now, we have just started a running review of the book Turbulence written by a true character and personality of the aviation Industry – Mr David A Banmiller.

It is a journey along the career and incidents, experiences, learnings, and benefits of a half-century of reflection and great memories within the Aviation Industry.
David has experienced incredible challenges and rewarding outcomes with Pan Am, Sun Country, Air Cal, American and Aloha.
We navigate through the book chapter by chapter and from Prologue to Epilogue.
Areas covered in this first episode: reference to:
• Cuban Hijacking
• Lockerbie bombings
• Sept 11 – 2001
• Tech disruptions
• Random acts of treachery and corporate intrigue
• The raunchy era
Why is our industry miss represented, miss judged and miss promoted?

Join us as we proceed through chapters that focus on People, Infrastructure and the business itself.
