" Retirement Over History
Our next EAL Radio Show program is scheduled for Monday, August 17, 2020, Episode 471. We have an interesting program as our topic planned on "Retirement Over History of Commercial Aviation" and airs at 7:00 P. M. EDT
The pilot retirement back in the 1950s age was 55. Then changed to 60 and now it is 65 according to The International Civil Aviation Authority (ICAO) who sets the maximum retirement age at 65, which the FAA has adopted.
However, some local civil aviation authorities have extended that age to address a shortage of pilots in their markets. Some of the questions we will try to answer when we present this show are:
- What determines when a person must be put out to pasture? Certainly not at age 55, 60, or even 65? All the experience that a senior person has is available for the safe operations of a commercial aircraft.
- What is the right age for retirement?
- Determined by what factors?
- Determined by whom?
We look forward to having you join our program and hear our Team of Hosts discuss this topic. Call into our live broadcast on August 17, 2020 at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EST. You may also use your computer to hear us live by going to our Blog Talk website: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie.

Dance moves varied when dancing to the music of Michael Jackson with his unique dance steps…the moon walk, or whether it was Bille Jean, Beat It or his song, The Way You Make Me Feel. What about Bon Jovie, an American rock band formed in 1983 singing It’s My Life, or Michael Sembello and the dance music “Maniac” that was the theme in the movie “FlashDance” or another great one, Whitney Houston and her dance songs, I Wanna Dance with Somebody, Greatest Love of All, I’m Your Baby Tonight. Even remembering Blue Monday with Fats Domino. Wow so many great dance bands and songs.

" History of Air Safety and Bird Strikes”
Our next EAL Radio Show program is scheduled for Monday, August 31, 2020, Episode 473. We have an interesting program as our topic planned is "History of Air Safety and Bird Strikes" and airs at 7:00 P. M. EDT.
According to AirlineRatings.com Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas, he says “All airlines have incidents every day, and many are aircraft or engine manufacture issues, not airline operational problems. And is the way the flight crew handles incidents that determines a good airline from an unsafe one.
Bird strikes may occur during any phase of flight and most likely during take-off, initial climb, approach and landing phases due to the greater numbers of birds in flight at lower levels. Listen in to learn solutions to help prevent incidents in bird strikes.
We look forward to having you join our program and hear our Team of Hosts discuss this topic. Call into our live broadcast on August 31, 2020 at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EST. You may also use your computer to hear us live by going to our Blog Talk website: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie.
