37-Year-Old Pilot Reportedly Found Deceased During Layover

A 37-year-old Alaska Airlines pilot was reportedly found deceased in his hotel room Saturday.

Freedom Flyers President and Co-Founder Josh Yoder first shared the startling news.

“Im told a 37 year old Alaska Airlines pilot was found deceased in his hotel room on September 23 when he didn’t show up for his scheduled airport transportation,” Yoder said.

The Facebook group “Alaska Airlines Flight Crew to Heaven” posted Sunday about the death of Seattle-based pilot Eric McRae.

From Facebook:

It is with extreme sadness that I am sharing the loss of one of our own.

Seattle based Captain Eric McRae tragically passed away yesterday while on a layover. Though completely unexpected and untimely we have no reason to believe foul play was involved.

Eric’s ties to the Alaska Airlines family run deep. Eric was a proud father and shared two beautiful young children with his wife Chael, an Alaska Airlines Flight Attendant. His father is retired Alaska Captain Tom McRae.

Out of respect for Eric’s family’s need for peace and time to grieve, we will not be sharing any further details at this time. We will continue to support the family in every way we possibly can.

100 Percent Fed Up noted:

According to Eric McRae’s LinkedIn profile, he worked as an Alaska Airlines pilot since 2014.

William Makis continues to track pilot incapacitations and deaths in 2023.

“We will eventually have data to compare recent pilot deaths & incapacitations to previous years,” he said.

WLTReport has followed the reports of pilots dying or becoming incapacitated.

In August, three pilots died suddenly in one week.

"Bill Gates the WEF & big pharma gave us the safe & effective COVID Vaccine… except they forgot to tell us about this list of side effects that they shared with the FDA in October of 2020 - YES BEFORE the mRNA modRNA vaccines were released. All these people do is lie so why does ANYBODY still trust them?" said attorney Tom Renz.


"I have 58 pilots with post vax conditions on that list," said Army flight surgeon Theresa Long.
