    Summary
    261 Max plays ATC audio and discusses a fatal Bonanza crash near the Westchester Co. Airport. He discusses things the pilot and controller might have done differently. The pilot declared an emergency about 22 minutes into the flight, though he’d been having engine issues for nearly 20 minutes. It also took him over 2 minutes to follow a vector toward the airport. Poor weather also played a role.

    Summary
    260 Max talks with Rob Mark about a listener based at KPWK who usually departs runway 16, and turns within 1/2 mile of the runway, because KORD is straight ahead. This puts him in a better position for returning to the airport, provided he lands on one of the other runways. Rob and Max talk about why the FAA recommends landing straight ahead, and the training one should do before turning back.

Maximum Thanks Max

Max, first I’d like to thank you for your devotion to the promotion of General Aviation and Aviation in general. You’re clearly passionate about this pursuit and that enthusiasm is reflected in every episode of the podcast. I found the podcast at a critical phase of my flight training, while working towards my IFR ticket and eventually Cirrus Transition Training, all successfully completed. I’m in South Florida, earned my private in ‘04 and have logged over 1,000 hours VFR, mostly Cross Country flying all over the Southeast in a C-182K. The instrument training really tested some deeply engrained mussel memory and I was struggling early in the process. I used your library of podcast to keep my mind immersed in Aviation facts and speak, like a literal hanger rat in the corner soaking up every word. The total transition was as much about a culture of Professionalism and Safety as it was about actual task and standards. It worked and I appreciate your help. Now I get to fly a rented 2016 SR 22 GTS several times a month with about 10 hours Solo PIC so far. The Cirrus is a fabulous example of attention to detail by talented engineers and designers. Anyway, I hope I’m not getting your fingers sticky with all the syrupy praise, but I sincerely appreciate your contribution. Safe Sky’s.
