I would like to dedicate October’s Aero Crew News issue to Nick Meier. Nick was involved in a serious car accident on July 17th and succumbed to his injuries on August 17th. Nick was a captain at Spirit Airlines. You can read more about his life here.
I had the pleasure of meeting Nick several times. We used to fly for the same company before he moved on to fly for Spirit Airlines. I also spoke with Nick at one of the Aero Crew Solutions job fairs that I worked. At that event, he did his first meet-and-greet with a Spirit Airlines recruiter. I remember talking to him and prepping him just before his one-on-one. I remember he had this ability to talk to anyone about anything. He was very outgoing and an extremely friendly person. In speaking with his mom and his wife over the past two weeks, I came to know Nick a lot better and wanted to share his story in our pages.
