"During this time of the year I make sure that I wipe down the cockpit with the sanitary wipes provided on the airplane in case the person before me might have a cold. I wash my hands very often, and carry hand sanitizer with me all the time. I also make sure that I eat as healthy as we can while we are on the road and take a multi-vitamin every day." Chad Pogorelac, GoJet Captain
