With nearly 30,000 flight hours under his belt, Jim Courant’s qualifications as a major passenger airline captain are solid. So is his conviction that the UFO phenomenon is real.
“I got the proof that I was after,” Courant says. “That’s the part I won’t discuss. But obviously something has kept me in this, taking the chances I’ve taken.”
The nature of the proof that he found isn’t all that Courant won’t discuss. Concerned about professional repercussions, he declines to confirm the name of his airline. Nor will he reveal the identities of some high level officials who he says have confirmed the extraterrestrial presence in conversations with him.
There are a few names that he will drop, however.
Astronaut Gordon Cooper, whose own unambiguous UFO encounter is a matter of public record, was a friend of Courant’s. He’s also traded stories with astronaut Edgar Mitchell, whose 2009 statement at the National Press Building calling for the U.S. government to come clean on the topic of UFOs garnered such fleeting media attention.
The short shrift Mitchell received in the press gives Courant little cause for optimism that future media events will turn the tide.
“A national hero and the sixth man to walk on the moon says that your government and others have been in contact with ETs for 67 years. That’s an incredible statement. It was buried on page seven the next day in the NY Post. Then Rush Limbaugh got in on the act.”
Courant’s frustration with the trickle-down effect of what X-Conference organizer Steve Bassett calls the “truth embargo” is obvious when he’s asked to comment on the effectiveness of the disclosure movement.
“I’d like to say that Steve is getting somewhere with what he’s trying to do,” Courant says. “But the internet is the new sheriff in town. There’s so much B.S. that it’s made it tough for people to know what to believe.”
Saying that he’s ready to unload his 5,000-volume library of UFO books, Courant talks with the road-weary circumspection of someone who’s told his story countless times, and who’s taken a few hits for the telling.
“It’s ruined my social life,” says Courant, who is divorced and lives in the Carolinas.
According to Courant, it’s not unheard of for cockpit personnel to turn in pilots who express an interest in UFOs. This can trigger everything from psych tests to what are called “line checks” (in-flight performance evaluations) which, if they go badly, can result in dismissal. The best way to avoid trouble, Courant says, is to steer clear of the topic while in uniform and, even when out of uniform, never to mention your employer’s name in any context that involves UFOs

David Cameron the Conservative leader in the UK elected as Prime Minister of the UK. In the past he said, “I am convinced” the Earth has been visited by aliens and vow to publish any secret files that may exist on UFOs if I become Prime Minister.” Aliens in UFOs have visited Earth, says David Cameron
Her Majesty the Queen asked Cameron to form a new government and President Obama phoned Cameron saying, “The United States has no closer friend and ally than the United Kingdom…” At 43, the Conservative party leader will be the country’s youngest prime minister in almost two centuries, and, as he acknowledges, daunting task ahead.
Mr. Cameron, speaking at one of his regular meetings where he takes the public’s questions, promised to be “entirely open and frank” about what the Government knows about close encounters.
Prime Minister and his wife Samantha Arrive at 10 Downing Street
A member of the audience asked: “In July last year the respected scientist and astronaut Dr Edgar Mitchell, who was the sixth man to walk on the moon, spoke on a British radio station. “He said the American government had had contact with extra terrestrials on multiple occasions and that these were ongoing. He spoke about the Roswell event in 1947 where wreckage of a downed UFO was recovered and found to contain alien bodies that this event was real but was covered up by the Government for many years.”Do you agree with me that the British people have a right to know if we have been visited, and if so, when you become Prime Minister will you seek to lift the veil of secrecy and give the public the truth that they deserve and that has been covered up for all these years?”
Mr. Cameron laughed and replied, “I’m convinced we have been visited by alien life forms….” Snip: Speaking in Tynemouth, England, at one of his “Cameron Direct” public meetings, he pledged that a Tory government would be “entirely open and frank” in sharing any information about alien life forms.
He was questioned about a string of recent mysterious incidents. “I have no idea if there is intelligent life out there,” he replied. “I do believe in freedom of information and openness and this question has been asked from time to time, and I think we should be as open and clear as possible.
