Podcast: Transitioning from pilot to entrepreneur

written by Robyn Tongol | November 25, 2020

Tune in to this episode of the World of Aviation Podcast, where we interview Jim Murphy, founder of Afterburner, and talk about the transferrable skills of pilots.

It’s fair to say 2020 has been a tough year for many in the aviation industry, who have been stood down, made redundant or simply forced to take on much worse working terms.

It’s easy to forget, however, how well trained and well thought of most aviation employees are. In this special episode of the World of Aviation Podcast, we interview Jim Murphy, the founder of Afterburner.

Murphy transformed himself from an instructor pilot who clocked 1,200 hours in an F-15 into an entrepreneur who teaches businesses how to succeed by thinking like a pilot.

He’ll speak about how he made the difficult switch and what he’s learned along the way.
