- "You think this is how I pictured my life? I grew up wanting to be a fighter pilot, not flying the puddle jumper to Vegas. All I wanted to be was a hero. Now I'll just settle for one decent story."

- "Look, I know this whole top ten thing has gotten to your head. But that's not pressure. Real pressure is safely flying a plane full of people who are all counting on you to get them to their jobs. To get them to their families. To get them to the people they're going to help. And you already do that every day. So put aside the what-ifs and all the ways this could go wrong, and just do it."
- ―Ronnie Messing to Dave Pratman.
At some point before 2018, Dave met Ronnie Messing. After being named one of the top ten pilots to watch, Dave had trouble landing the plane. Ronnie helped him through this by reminding him of the pressure he had constantly been under and how he still performed his job as a pilot regardless of the pressure, leading to him safely landing the plane.
