Claude Odell Isaac Jr; phony Gulf War pilot

| December 14, 2015

Odell Issac

Someone sent us a link to this fellow Claude Odell Isaac Jr, who also goes by the name Odell Issac. When i first checked on the link that someone sent us, to Che Bella Tours it worked but now not so much – it’s only in caches these days;


At that website, they listed their employees, one of whom was this Isaac fellow;

Odell Issac bio

He is a pilot for these Che Bella Tours people and he claims that he was an Air Force pilot who flew in Desert Storm, so you’re in good hands. Or maybe not – the National Personnel Records Center says that he was a plumber and a helicopter mechanic for five months in the National Guard until he was placed on Inactive Reserve status for the remainder of his term – through Desert Storm. He might have gone through flight training, but it was private training and he wasn’t an Air Force pilot, according to the NRPC.

    Hey, at least he did more service than chevycheeseliar, just not USAF pilot or DS/DS or overseas service or anything else that was actually relevant to his current job…

    • jedipsycho (Certified Space Shuttle Door Gunner) says:

      I was just thinking him and Cheavyliar should hang out, eat cheese and swap pretend war stories.

  3. GDContractor says:

    FAA Airman Registry says “WHO?”

    There’s five guys in the database with the last name of “Issac”. This guy isn’t one of them. Reminds me of Steven Cushman, nope, not there either.

    At least Heavy Chevy was in the database. Haters.

    • GDContractor says:

      Disregard previous post. I typo’d his name, my bad.

      Odell Claude Isaac
      Flight Instructor – rotorcraft- helicopter issued 12/17/1991
      Commercial Pilot – single, multi, instr, rotor-heli issued 7/31/2014

      The dude is a licensed pilot.

  4. The Commentor' Formerly Known as MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    OMG, what happened today?

    Did the “Dam of the Damn Poser Battalion” burst thus flowing all these shitbags our way?

  5. Climb to Glory says:

    Plumber. Flush another turd down the toilet. Wonder if he knows Bernath. Any word on whether he knows what a fuel gauge is.

  6. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    MAYBE he was Blobfish’s Copilot when they flew for The Stunning Agency?

  7. ChipNASA says:

    I bet that degree in “Aeorospace” Engineering from St. Louis University is bullshit too.

    /nice professional website douchebags.

  8. Claw says:

    Only a Marksman with a “Gernade” Bar? Nuff said.

    The FOIA also says he was a “plumer”

    To me that means he thinks of himself as the Cock of the Walk, but all he does is “preen his feathers” and drop loads of chickenshit wherever he goes.

    What I Do – I am a natural born leader who first started flying in 1984. As an Air Force officer and pilot, I acquired the necessary skills to successfully lead the flight operations as the Chief Pilot of Stellar Air. I previously was the Chief Pilot of another airline for five years as well as an entrepreneur.

    Achievements-Graduated in 1987 from St. Louis University with a BS in Aerospace Engineering as well as the Professional Pilot program and Air Force ROTC. After spending several years as an officer in the Air Force, I started a professional career that has spanned almost 30 years of flying, engineering, software development, sales & marketing and various levels of management up to and including the executive level.

    I have a deep entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for start up companies. Being Air Force trained, I have developed strategies that provide Stellar Air an unprecedented margin of safety. As the Chief Pilot at a previous airline, I developed the skills necessary to ensure Stellar Air can be successful by maintaining operational efficiency and increased margins for all aircraft. Through my many years of maintaining a strong and effective relationship with the FAA, I have acquired the skills necessary to navigate the sea of federal regulations and governmental bureaucracy.

    He did 4 months ADT at Ft. Leonard Wood. He might have had enough time to do the plumber AIT, but not the helicopter mechanic, and certainly not both. I also see that he made it for 9 months before getting the boot. If I recall, that was about the right amount of time for someone who didn’t make any drills after completing training to miss the requisite number of drills and get the discharge paperwork completed. Also, none of the units on his FOIA have helicopters, so not sure why he would have gotten that MOS.

    My best guess is that he enlisted into the Eng Co in Colorado, went to Leonard Wood, stayed in MO after completing Army training but was still assigned to the Colorado Eng Co, did an interstate transfer to the transportation Co in MO, and never did a drill at either place. He was then discharged for his poor performance.

    • Claw says:

      You’re probably correct on all counts, Sir. No Ft. Rucker or Ft. Eustis on his records, so no helicopter repairman. Maybe he was doing AIT by correspondence course?

      Kinda off topic, but has anybody else taken notice that except for the Marine PFC with a CAR, not a one of the four phonies featured today, cumulatively do not have any awards higher than the NDSM? That’s right, Zip,Nadda,Zilch for any personal meritorious or achievement awards, let alone for valor. Not even a Good Conduct Medal for those eligible.

      Good outstanding efforts on their behalf. That’s why they feel they have to embellish and phony up their service. It’s called “Medal and Ribbon Envy.” Not enough bright and shiny do-dads.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Hey! Do not knock the gedunk medal. It is hard to come by. Anyone who’s been around PN Fenstermacher knows that.

        Now get your hands out of your pockets!

      • Andy11M says:

        They may have slotted him on their duty roster as a mech. when I was in the reserves I was slotted into the S1 for a few months under the line number for the legal clerk. Years later I saw some paper work on myself after returning to active duty that said I had held that MOS.

        • Bobo says:

          I thought that too, at first, but none of the units that he was assigned to would have had that MOS on their MTOE.

        • Claw says:

          There may have been something in his records that described him as a HVAC(Heating,Ventilation,and Air Conditioning) repairman and the NPRC Tech thought it meant Helicopter repair.

          Hell, it’s as plausible as any other theory.

          • Claw says:

            But then again, given the number of misspellings on the FOIA (such as Natioal,Plumer,Gernade) he may have been listed as a Plumber’s Helper (toilet plunger) and the acronym may have looked like Plmb Hlpr and the NPRC Tech turned that into Helicopter Repairman.

  11. OWB says:

    I want the beer concession for the meet-n-greet between this one and Hollywood as they discuss which was the command pilot on those flights around the Gulf.

  12. Green Thumb says:

    A future corporate pilot at All-Points Logistics.

  13. Casey says:

    One wonders if the 10,000 hours flight time is legit as well.

    How often does a chopper pilot have to fly to get those kinds of hours?
