RFT 007: Interview With Zach Taylor, Blackwater Pilot In Afghanistan

December 31, 2015

In this podcast we interview Zach Taylor, who served in the U.S. Navy before becoming an airline pilot. When he was furloughed from his airline, Zach decided to go a different route. He contacted Blackwater and was hired as a helicopter pilot for operations in Afghanistan. We hear Zach talk about the operation of civilian helicopters in a combat zone, and the daily lifestyle in incredibly austere conditions.
