    Episode 091 | Remote View Flight Check? with Rob Mark

    I think it was Bob Dylan who sang about the times, they are a changin’. And while I guess that’s always a little true, it seems like it’s especially appropriate now. And I hope it’s all good, because there are a few things that really do need a changin’ so that we can resume functionality in the industry.
    And particularly this is true anywhere there’s bureaucracy. Like how many times have you said something like. “Don’t we have a technology to just automate this?” And since the beginning of the pandemic, maybe you’ve said something similar like “can’t we just do this remotely?”
    Well, more and more, it’s looking like the answer is yes! Just about every meeting and collaboration can now be done from the comfort of your home over Zoom or Teams, and for the most part, that’s cool. That is, unless your kid pops in on your live broadcast, or you’ve accidentally left your favorite sex toy on the shelf right behind you...
    But what about in aviation? We don’t pilot passengers remotely. Yet at least. We can, but do t really do remote tower operations. However you could argue that just about all radar stuff is remote though. But of course, not from home.
    But there is one thing we just may be able to do remotely now, but the jury is still out on whether or not it’s a great idea…
     
    Rob and I want to hear from you about this! Make sure to send in your feedback so that we can discuss it in a future Episode.
     
    GOOOOOOOD DAY!

    Episode 090 | Dave English | Famous Aviation Quotations

    Episode 090 | Dave English | Famous Aviation Quotations

    As I look back on my flying career, I often think about some of the quotes I’ve heard along the way. Aviate, Navigate, Commumnicate, Monitor the freq. before you speak. Speed is life, altitude is insurance. And, I’ll never not be able to hear Martha King say “Please, stay out of the trees.” But, there’s one quote that seems to keep coming up time and time again. It’s written on the walls of flight schools, seen on plaques and awards, quoted in films, and used in just about every piece of learn to fly marketing material I’ve ever seen.
    And that’s because it’s so beautiful. So expressive of the sentiment we all feel when aviation’s running through your veins, and spoken by one of the all time great artists, scientists, and thinkers of the last thousand years.
    Are you ready?
    “Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” - Leonardo DaVinci
    There’s just one problem… DaVinci never said that!
     
    Enjoy!

    Episode 089 | Listener Feedback | Boeing settlement

    Episode 089 | Listener Feedback | Boeing settlement

    In the old school where print magazines were all we had, letters were pretty much how content creators (also before they were called that too) would interact with the readership. But now, I think it’s so cool that we have the ability to actually talk with the content creators we like, and one of my favorite parts of doing this podcast is talking with those of you that listen, and then come up with really good feedback and questions.
    And as we kiss good-bye they worst year on record in my lifetime, and start in to 2021 with a healthy amount of cautions optimism, I can’t say that I’ll be changing the show fundamentally. But, if there are any resolution-style changes I’d like, it’d be to get you all on it more, be it through voice feedback, emails, or whatever.
    And to that end, I’ve got quite a bit of it today, questions, comments, a little something for everyone, so let’s get to it. Oh, and we’re going to talk about that little 2.5 Billion dollar payout Boeing owes too...

    Episode 088 | Living to fly another day | Rich Pickett Part 2

    Part 1 was such a hit, that I'm proud to bring you another Episode with Rich. 
    Straight up, what it's like to fall ill with COVID-19, nearly die in a coma, and recover to fly another day. A fascinating look at the reality of this horrible disease.

    Episode 087 | Personal Wings | Rich Pickett

    Episode 087 | Personal Wings | Rich Pickett

    Have you ever met one of those people where, it seems like every sentence out of their mouth gives you déjà vu? It doesn’t happen very often, but maybe that’s why you remember... It happened to me last year at an MMOPA safety stand down. I walked in, sat down. And I started listening to the guy teaching the class (his name is Rich by the way). He talked about icing encounters in Colorado and some other stuff you might find relevant next time you’re doing something you probably shouldn’t be in a meridian or an eclipse.
    But after the lecture ended he took us all out to lunch at the fantastic Mexican restaurant Cosa Machado if you’ve ever been to Montgomery Field (KMYF). He started talking about the things he done, the places he had been, crazy stuff actually. I think it started with flying in airplane in the thunderstorms or something. But then we got to becoming a police officer in Colorado and not just anywhere Colorado; Telluride Colorado (KTEX). The very same place I grew up. The same place I did a radio show with my dad. And, guess we talked about next. Broadcasting. Then, Working a more or less first job throwing bags for continental airlines at Stapleton, Which they also let me do back at Telluride as my first aviation job. I mean. CO Express, but hey, who’s counting. And plus, the flights went to Denver anyway. So there.
    But I can’t help feeling that so many things that I did, it’s like he had done the same thing only a few decades earlier.
    Anyway. Something I’ve said, or at least implied, is that aviation can be just so many different things to so many different people. And I’m not here to judge. Quite the opposite, I’m happy for you however you choose to integrate it into your daily life.
    And while I wouldn’t change much about my journey, there’s a little part of me that has a dream about how, in a different time and place, maybe I’d have taken a different path. One where I stuck with broadcasting. Or whatever, and took aviation into my life in a different way.
    And that’s why I gel with our guest today so well. Because that’s exactly what he did!

    P.S. The audiophiles among you may notice that I recorded this on an alternate recording setup, so it sounds a little different than normal. I'll be back to the usual one for Ep. 87.

1st Show

Just heard the first show. Very interesting and sounds very professional. As you're a CFI, I think it would be great to have podcast lessons such as explaining density altitude. Altimetry, meteorology and other topics PPL students like myself have to get their head round.
