Motivational Mondays: Conversations with Leaders

Dec 20, 2021

Peter Zaccagnino has always been fascinated by airplanes. He earned his undergraduate degree in aeronautical engineering and got his pilot's license, which allowed him to fly many aircraft — including three he designed by himself!

Peter is a proud but humble aviator who’s traveled the world and logged time on 270 planes. But there's so much more to his story, including surviving harrowing experiences like being held at gunpoint in Pakistan, unjustly detained by Nigerian authorities, and preventing children from getting kidnapped in Guatemala.

Peter took time out of his busy Tom Clancy-novelesque life to discuss his literary career, his role as a leader in aviation, and the importance of travel as a tool for teaching us empathy. 

In this week’s episode of Motivational Mondays, you’ll learn when Peter first became interested in aviation, how he manages his team to set them up for success, and what it’s like to air race in a jet.
