Patrick Berger - Air Interdiction Agent

Hello, my name is Patrick Berger and I am currently an Air Interdiction Agent with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. I would like to share my journey with you as an aviator and how L3Harris helped me get to my next step in my career. My aviation journey begins at 14 years old. My father was a recreational pilot with interests of getting me in an aircraft early on as well. So, when I turned 14 years of age he paid for a lesson in a glider and I was immediately bitten by the aviation bug. Knowing that this is what I wanted to do in my life, my dad and I slowly began taking steps towards making my dream of becoming a pilot a reality.

Connecting Europe to South America at night

Night flying, in terms of procedures, does not differ from daylight flights. What changes dramatically is the environment. At night you have to rely more on pure instrument flying rather than visual clues which are non-existent if your flight is to be over the ocean without any moonlight.

Getting the most from Ground School

I still remember the day I got accepted to L3Harris. The excitement of getting that email offering you a place and then getting your start date is unmatched. Before you know it, you’ll be starting your course, head down studying for your exams. There is little time for you to stop and breathe as it is a whirlwind which goes by so quickly. And then, before you know it, you’ve finished. It has now been 2 months since I left ground school, and it has given me time to reflect on my time there and what I wish I could have told myself before I started.
