    • Pietro,

      If there are any topics that you’d like me to cover in the free lesson material, please let me know. I love what I do and I want to provide material that pilots and controllers are looking for.

  • Very nice interview sad story about that f-16 I can’t imagine how a person can be found in 120 different parts. I think than everybody involved or not involved in the aviation industry should know something about safety and rescue.

  • HI. This is Jiehyen Lim from Jacksonville, Florida Stage College. I would like to interview with you for my project, but I couldn’t find the contact information.

  • Hi my name is Fernando Medeiros from Brazil! Congratulations for your work Mr.Green, thanks for help us to fly safe.
