September 12, 2023 | Hosted By: Jon Gray
Welcome to episode 99 of The Hangar Z Podcast brought to you by Vertical Valor Magazine.
In this episode, we are privileged to host Sergeant Jon Hess from the Kansas City Police Department Aviation Unit.
During the conversation, Jon Hess talks about the Kansas City Police Department and their aviation unit. Jon is a Purdue University Aviation program graduate, so we spend time talking about his education, and the road to the Kansas City Police Aviation Unit.
Kansas City being the home of the Kansas City Chiefs NFL Football team, we talked about how their operations are impacted by the crowds of the football season.
We also spend time talking about today's recruitment and retention issues and look at ways to work around the current problem.
