In this interview with Robert Miles, Al Ueltschi, an aviation pioneer and legend, talks about all aspects of his business from starting out as a Kentucky farm boy, to teaching himself to fly, buying his first plane, becoming the first corporate pilot of the founder of Pan Am, starting in the marine terminal at NYC’s LaGuardia Airport, and eventually selling to Warren Buffett.
Listen to a man who has lived the total lifespan of aviation, from man’s first flight across the Atlantic Ocean to landing on the moon. A inspiring tale of a man of vision, a pilot, an entrepreneur, and a philanthropist, who founded and built FlightSafety into the largest pilot training company in the world, and now a wholly owned subsidiary of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway.
This video may help the viewer understand the qualitative [non measurable] aspects that Warren Buffett may consider when making an investment. Al Ueltschi’s business success may touch your mind, but what he has done with that success may touch your heart.
