John Cathcart joined the USAF in 1978, and after earning his pilot's wings, he flew the B52 and the F-111. He later served as a military attaché, in Colombia and Venezuela, where he flew the embassy's twin-engine prop C-12: the military version of the Super King Air.

For the remainder of his military career, he worked in a series of staff assignments, including the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the US Southern Command. After a twenty-year military career, he retired at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

In 1999 Cathcart was hired by American Airlines and flew mostly 737 until his retirement in 2015.

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt
