First and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Because of your support and listenership 2012 was a record breaking year as we out grew ourselves nearly month over month. Thank you from the bottom our our props for tuning in week in and week out. We couldn't do it without you! Cheers 🙂
Welcome to one of our favorite editions of the Stuck Mic AvCast! Today we had the distinct honor of interviewing ERA Airlines Captain and co-host of the Discovery Channel's Flying Wild Alaska show, John Ponts. In a chance encounter in late 2012 co-host Carl Valeri bumped into Ponts at the Newark Liberty International Airport in Newark, NJ which lead to this interview opportunity. At the time, Ponts was traveling to Germany for vacation but not before agreeing to come on the show and talk about his passion for aviation.
This audio interview is Part 1 of a 2 part series with Ponts as we cover everything from his desire to be a professional athlete to his transition into flying. Join us for this tell-all show as we get down and dirty with the real John Ponts!
