Father & Son At

Mon Sep 04, 2000 12:59 am

Hi all !

At Pluna (Uruguayan Airlines) 732s cockpit you can find a father flying together with his son, as co-pilot.
The Captain is Jorge Acuna, and the son is Marcelo Acuna. Jorge is a ex-militar pilot flying for Pluna since 1994, and Marcelo since 1997.
The two flew together 2-3 times last months. PU team is not so big (737: 30 captains + 30 co-pilots).
More information, and a picture, you can fine here: www.diarioelpais.com/edicion/pagina.phtml?ciudades+informe+1.
Do you know more examples of Father and Son flying together?
C U, Ido

I read in Our Times, United's employee newspaper, that a mother-son team (mother was capt, son was f/o) flew a 767 JFK-SFO. That's pretty cool, considering the amount of pilots UA has.

Wow that's very interesting articles!!

I have heard once a long time ago, I read the article but don't remember when it was. American Airlines 727 father was captain and son was first officer.

Did you know that some airlines policy are not allow family in one company? The only airline is Delta not allow to have one family in thier company.
