About This Week’s Guest
Ask the Pilot: Patrick Smith
Patrick Smith is an airline pilot and the host of www.askthepilot.com. His book is COCKPIT CONFIDENTIAL: Everything You Need to Know About Air Travel. He lives in Somerville, Massachusetts.
His tips to become more culturally aware are:
- Be patient. Patience is a virtue. And this is even truer when you’re dealing with different cultures.
- Be open minded. Ask yourself “what if...” (they were right).
- Be humble towards the other culture. Let the experience and what is happening around you come to you. Rather than imposing your own thoughts on them.
