Mark Estabrook's 30-minute interview with Captain Duane Woerth, then President of the Air Line Pilots Association, was recorded November 11, 1999, at the Cargo Pilot Symposium in Tunica, Mississippi.

Captain Woerth outlined what issues confronted not only cargo pilots, but all professional airline pilots in the United States as we entered the next century. The single biggest threat Captain Woerth saw coming was job security, as government and industry sought to do away with protections against cabotage.
