It's been in all the headlines lately, a small airplane crashes throughout Eastern North Carolina. Just Monday, we told you of one crash in Rocky Mount in which two people were killed over the weekend and another crash in Craven County where the pilot walked away with minor injuries. What is life really like for a pilot and how does the burden of their responsibilities weigh on them? Well, we caught up with one 25-year-old pilot and flight instructor at Dillon's Aviation in Greenville and talked to Taft Stallings about the pressures and responsibilities pilot's face each day. He told us when you perform your job safely, it makes it a bit easier to deal with. Taft says his number one priority is extensive training and safety.
