Jason “Emet” Depew is a B737 Captain at a major US airline. He does some part-time flight instructing in the Icon A5, his Pipistrel Sinus, and whatever else he can get his hands on. He’s written for The Pilot Network, BogiDope, Pilot Pipeline, and FLYING magazine.
While on active duty, Emet flew the TG-4A, TG-10B/C/D, B-1B, U-28A, T-6A, and E-11A. He flew more than 300 combat missions over Afghanistan, Djibouti, and elsewhere. The proudest moments of his military career were times when he made a difference in protecting good men and women with boots on the ground, and making bad guys go away forever. He now does a non-flying job in the USAF Reserve.
Married with two kids, two dogs, two cats, four parakeets, and certainly many more animals to come, Emet and the other Depews enjoy travel, swimming, eating delicious food, building things, and escape rooms.
