As a Captain I would be most interested in his opinions over a wide range of subjects. I would not have an expectation for him to have access to or have a willingness to share really high level sensitive information.
It is still useful to know the opinions and thoughts of someone at the level of this man. I speak to people similar to him frequently and almost always find the time spent in conversation useful.
Is your friend the Captain still willing to expound on his experience?
