Last week on Industry Review we got a huge reaction to our interview with travel agents who’ve been greatly impacted by the pandemic.

It did get us thinking that the nation's pilots have also seen their sector of the economy decimated with foreign travel almost completely wiped out.

So, to get an insight into how pilots have been affected by Covid, Bobby was joined by:

  • Captain Andy O’Shea, founder of the ‘Airline Pilot Club’ and Chairman of the EASA Aircrew Training Policy Group
  • Philip Smythe, Safety Director and Senior Flight Instructor at the Atlantic Flight Training Academy School at Cork Airport
  • Margie Burns, Managing Director of Aviation Selection Consultants and Mental Health Wellbeing company Flourishing.ie
