A Place To Land

Lots of people are taking advantage of the recession to go back to school and gain new skills. Andy Loeffler is one of them. Andy has been a pilot for a major airline for almost 20 years. He survived the post 9/11 pay cuts, the loss of his pension, and the bankruptcy of his airline. Andy loves his job, but as the father of two teenage girls, he realizes it's not stable. So Andy decided to make a back-up plan. While keeping his full-time job, Andy went back to law school in 2006. He's graduating this month. Andy talks to Dick Gordon about his decision to pursue another degree, in a field that's about as stable as the airlines.
