Kobe Bryant: The Crash from a pilots point of view

On January 26, 2020 Kobe Bryant, his daughter, his pilot and six other people lost their lives in a tragic helicopter crash. What happened next is a rally of misinformation, fake videos, assumptions and just trash talk. Airplane pilots saying helicopter pilots are dangerous, the public asking why we can fly in that weather, etc. etc. Fact is, you don’t know anything about the crash, neither do I, so lets talk about the weather…

“Everything is nothing but conjecture, there are no conclusions from actual facts, so shut the fuck up until the NTSB has done their job.”

Don’t be afraid of flying, be afraid of bad decisions brought on by a boss that threatens to fire pilots for being safe, and seriously lets consider that Hollywood makes you fear helicopters because a helicopter crash is great suspense.

Episode 007: with every tick of the clock, you are closer to death

This episode contradicts its very own existence. We discuss the fragility of time and how it cannot be re-earned yet this episode has sat in the wings molding since its creation. We human beings can be our own worst enemy and we as creators are no exception. The chaos of life can sometimes mask our ability to create, to enjoy, to observe the world yet our stagnancy can be terminal. This episode launches the day after the untimely death of basketball superstar Kobe Bryant, who’s life was cut short, and hits close to home with the way in which he passed. A sobering reminder that we must respect aircraft, and a more sobering reminder that even if you maximize the time you have on earth, time can catch up with you, and run out without warning.

“Whats the part of your life you regret even doing, that you wish you could go back and do something else… But I want to know the thing that plagues you.”

The time we have is fleeting and perishable, it is our one natural resource that can never be replenished, saved or stored. Why waste what little we have left.
