Earlier this year I had the pleasure to talk to the founder/CEO Bjørn Kjos during a domestic flight. Very nice, down to earth guy. We talked about the new 737-MAX and it’s operations and his former career as a fighter pilot in the Royal Norwegian Air Force. He flew F-104 Starfighter and F-5 Freedom fighter in the 334 squadron, operating out of Bodø airbase (ICAO: ENBO)
