Tales from the Terminal: Captain Eric Edwards, LAX 737

We’re back with more Tales from the Terminal, with an American pilot collecting cards for the future pilots of the airline. 


Today we’re in LAX with Captain Eric Edwards, who shares his “why” in becoming an AA for ALPA Pilots Advocate: for American pilots to be represented in the same manner as their peers.


“I find that a lot of the older pilots often tell me that they’re old, on their way out and don’t really get involved in ‘that stuff’ too much, to which I normally respond: look at me. I’m just like you. We still have some time left here and I know what ALPA can accomplish. I was part of a local council some years back and I would like to see all the younger set that are coming on to the airline here be represented in the same manner that their peers are over at the Deltas, Uniteds and Alaskas out there, doing the same thing we’re doing every day. I like to talk to the older guys and encourage them to sign the card too, which–for the most part–they always do.” - Captain Eric Edwards, LAX 737


Eric brings a relatable value to interactions with AA pilots. Listen to how he figures most AA pilots are real approachable and what he’s experienced in LAX and PHX terminals. 


Follow and share our pilots’ experiences by spreading the word on social, listening to the podcast, and discovering just how easy it is to help out the cause.
