If there’s one thing TPG staffers love more than the thrill of the points and miles game, it’s the art (and science) of aviation. From regional jets to the A380, planes are a religion around these parts.
In honor of August 19, National Aviation Day (which should be a national holiday, if you ask us), we’re sharing a few of our most memorable AvGeek moments.
