Jell-O has been the most requested guest since this podcast started. Today he was kind enough to be interviewed and lived up to the hype.
Jell-O spent nearly 25 years in service flying mainly the F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet but also the F-16 Fighting Falcon during an adversary tour. He accrued over 3,800 flight hours and 705 carrier landings, having served as a TOPGUN instructor and air wing operations officer. Jell-O left the Navy in 2017 and now flies for a major airline. He also started the "Fighter Pilot Podcast" which explores the fascinating world of air combat.
Jell-O is a great speaker with lots of stories. He has the wisdom of an experienced fighter pilot and is able to communicate it in an easy going way--a trait he shares with the first guest I interviewed, Matt "Freq" Casey. In this episode we talk about his advice to a new fighter pilot, what it feels like to land on a carrier at night, his favorite aircraft to fly, his views on leadership, and more.
