In episode 99 of The Hangar Z Podcast, brought to you by Vertical Valor magazine, host Jon Gray speaks with Sgt Jon Hess from the Kansas City Police Department Aviation Unit.

During the conversation, Hess talks about the Kansas City Police Department and its aviation unit.

Hess is a Purdue University Aviation program graduate, so they spend time talking about his education, and the road to the Kansas City Police Aviation Unit. Kansas City being the home of the Kansas City Chiefs NFL Football team, they spoke about how operations are impacted by the crowds of the football season.

They also spend time talking about today’s recruitment and retention issues and look at ways to work around the current problem.
