We spoke with Oleg Evdokimov, who is currently in Russia and is a Russian aviation expert. Our conversation was constrained – we could not use certain words or language for his personal security. To be clear, traffic to our site from Russia has spiked and we have no interest in creating problems for a guest. Oleg provided color from a side of the conflict we in the west are not hearing much about. These are very tough times for commercial aviation in Russia as you can imagine – Oleg mentions some 700 pilots being out of work over the past week.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
