I am writing this to remind you to “NEVER FORGET”. And, although my mission is to help you feel more empowered, educated, and at ease, it is important to remember that you are a key component chain of safety. Please do not hesitate for a moment to call attention to something you see or hear that does not seem right. Speak up at the ticket counter, security area, gate, or jet. Tell the agents, flight attendants, or pilots, that you are ‘very concerned’ or ‘worried about safety’ and give specific details. If you feel a bit disregarded, tell someone else of authority. I want you to feel safe and secure on our flights and to do that, you must feel that you too have some say and control in the operations of the flights. Always be vigilant!
Please visit “Dahlfund.org”. This charity was set up in the name of Captain Jason Dahl who heroically gave up his life at the controls of United flight 93. He was a real leader and mentor to many. This scholarship fund was set up for youth to pursue their love for aviation and help set them on a path to becoming future pilots.
The following is a video of an American Airlines pilot who was suppose to fly that fateful day. It is a great reminder to cherish each day and to be grateful for the lives we have. “IN MY SEAT” at http://www.youtube.com/embed/cLj4akmncsA.
This is dedicated to the all the crew members, passengers, people, children, firemen, policemen, and volunteers who gave their lives.
