Airborne 01.12.22: Delta Drops College Req, Alaska Winds, Train v 172

Also: Ultralight Symposium Canceled, SSA Convention Nixed, Instagram CFI Fraud, UND PPL Scholarships

Delta Airlines has notified prospective pilot candidates that the company has reduced its minimum hiring requirements.

The reception was mixed, with more than a few non-industry commenters decrying the decline in standards. Those in the pilot career pipeline should be excited, as the drawing back of the non-essential standards in the biggest legacy carriers means that at last the long-prophesied pilot shortage may be upon us. A severe windstorm struck Alaska earlier last week, wreaking havoc across the south central region, with winds up to 91 mph causing damage to vehicles, power lines, and equipment. Witnesses were surprised to see the level of damage caused by breakaway aircraft, which were subjected to such forces that tiedown anchors and ropes were ripped from their attachment points. One viral video this week showed a dramatic, last-second save by a Los Angeles Police Department officer who rescued a recently-crashed pilot out of his plane only seconds before an oncoming train collided with the wreckage. The LAPD released the Foothill Division Officer's bodycam footage, saying they "displayed heroism and quick action" with their response. The units were called to an afternoon crash landing involving a single-occupant Cessna 172 that came to rest on top of the Metrolink Antelope Valley line train tracks. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
