Episode 153 – Steve Taylor – Commercial Pilot

Capt. Steve Taylor (Ret.) joins host Craig Price to discuss his life as a commercial pilot. Not many people get to fly commercial jets for a living so when Craig had the chance to get Steve Taylor on the podcast to discuss his latest book “Wheels Up: Sky Jinks in the Jet Age” he was sure to ask about how Steve became a pilot, why regional airlines have such young pilots, why the military fosters cockiness in their pilots and where is some hairy places to land. Craig also learns that Steve has a very narrow view on what “dangerous” really means and how close a “close call” must be before Steve even thinks it’s a problem.

The stories in “Wheels Up” are not made up. They are the real deal true antics of a jet age pilot in the high-octane environment of the cockpit. Some will give you pause and make you think, some will knock the wind out of you, and some will make you throw your head back and laugh. From the hallowed halls of The Citadel to the sometimes dark skies of Vietnam to the pranks and high jinks of a game-faced pilot, Captain Steve Taylor will fly you to places few have seen.
