Rank #2: Episode 18: Chris Passes his Checkride.
In this episode of the In The Pattern Podcast, Chris passes his Private Pilot Checkride with flying colors. He also talks about his first flights as a private pilot. Mark hasn't done any flight training, but he did get to take a nice flight in a Cirrus and he discusses the flight down to Long Beach and the flying over KLAX. Brad also discusses more of his IFR training and John doesn't do much of anything. Links and such Class D airspace information AIM FAR 91.129 The Anaheim 3 Departure Procedure (2 pages:  ), which Mark flew in his buddy’s Cirrus SR-22 The Phoenix Sky Harbor VFR transition corridors (magenta double-arrows at either end of the runways). Chris flies through there a lot to get from one side of the PHX Bravo airspace to the other. Brad is jealous because the MSP Bravo airspace is right in his way (he flies out of MIC, just Northwest of MSP) and there are no VFR transition corridors, so he has to go around it. The DC SFRA and ADIZ that John gets to fly in and around. The FAA has a course you need to take before you fly there, or you’ll get a visit from some F-16s (in which case you should know your intercept procedures).

Rank #1: Can Airports Help Revive the Aviation Industry?.
Can Airports Help Revive the Aviation Industry? Dear Reader / Listeners – You now have the option to listen to The Aviation Minute podcast or just read the script of the show below.

If you’re not yet a subscriber to The Aviation Minute, Click Here to sign up … it’s free. ______________________________ Listen Now I knew we had a lot of landing areas here in the United States … but 19,315 according to the FAA? Wow. That number is of course broken down into traditional airports, heliports, seaplane bases. No matter what you call them or what they look like, they all have one thing in common. They represent a place where airplanes, helicopters and seaplanes come home to roost from time to time. Some of those airports represent much more of an opportunity to me than simply as landing areas though. The aviation industry is still suffering from an economic recession of sorts. In the early 1980s, we produced 15,000 piston aircraft. Last year we produced 1,328. In the 1990s we had over 700,000 pilots on the FAA register. Today that numbers in the high 500,000s. Student pilot starts are down from the old days too with nearly 7 in 10 students quitting long before they ever earn a pilot certificate. Aircraft maintenance technician numbers have been flat since 1990, which equates to zero growth. Worst of all, 75% of the AMTs today are over the age of 50. As an industry, our ship has been taking on water for sometime despite a number of conscientious initiatives to increase the pilot, mechanic and airplane supply, most of which haven’t moved the needle much. If we don’t figure out a way to start bringing new blood into the industry soon, there won’t be enough people to fly the airplanes we build, or fix them, or service them at those thousands of U.S. airports. The question is how to fix the problem we all know about, but that many people still seem to believe is someone else’s problem? Rather than another national initiative, what if we focused our triage efforts locally … at our neighborhood airport? When people think of learning to fly, they go to the airport. If they want to buy a plane they often visit the airport first. When they need one fixed, or they want a hangar, they head to the airport. This is where I think airport managers can help. Traditionally, they focus on keeping the airport alive with solid pavement, newly mown grass and runway lights that work … all very necessary tasks. But marketing the industry is not something airport people normally think about. But what if airport managers started thinking a bit more about marketing, I think they might just transform their airport into a local industry beacon of sorts, one that encourages people to learn to fly, or become involved in any of a half dozen other careers within the industry? I’m not asking airport managers to fix the industry’s personnel woes all alone, just help coordinate local efforts with the airport tenants whose companies need the boost as much as the industry. Imagine organizing a couple of career days, or a Young Eagles Rally or two to stimulate interest. What about an airport Facebook page or a blog to tell the local community about the value of the airport, one that regularly posts photos or stories gathered from airport tenants? Before you know it we might even convince the community around our airports to ignore those 8-foot barbed wire fences and stop in for a visit. I think airport managers are up to the challenge of coordinating the local marketing efforts for our industry. We’ll talk more about the actual tactics in another episode too. And for those naysayers who are already saying that will never work … tell me what you’d suggest instead because I haven’t seen much working lately. If we don’t all start realizing that fixing what ails our industry is everyone’s concern … flight schools, FBOs, flying clubs, maintenance and avionics shops, trust me … we may one day find that the airport managers who are still around may have a lot fewer airports to watch over.

Rank #2: Why U.S. Airmen Should be Grateful for the NTSB.
Dear Reader / Listeners – You now have the option to listen to The Aviation Minute podcast or just read the script of the show below. If you receive Jetwhine via e-mail, you can click here to listen as well. If you’re not yet a subscriber to The Aviation Minute, Click Here to sign up … it’s free. __________________________ Why U.S. Airmen Should be Grateful for the NTSB Podcast Text — Last week’s crash in the French Alps raised a number of issues, like how the young pilot accused of the tragedy managed to keep his health issues hidden from his employer, how few airlines outside the US. bring another employee into the cockpit when one pilot must leave and of course how, or if, pilots can even be allowed to fly if they’re suffering from any mental health issues. There is one item that wasn’t mentioned though, at least not directly … the differences between how aircraft accidents like these are investigated here in the US versus other parts of the world. In the United States, our National Transportation Safety Board has spoiled us, in a good way. The NTSB is, of course, an independent federal agency established outside the Dept. of Transportation and answering only to Congress. Since the NTSB was crated back in 1926, the agency and its predecessors have investigated some 132,000 aviation accidents. But back to the Alps. The first comments about the Germanwings crash were released by French Prosecutors. The French BEA, their equivalent of our NTSB, was sent to the accident site, but have not been heard from. In Europe and other parts of the world, prosecutors being first to the microphone are not all that unusual because their motives are different from ours. Here, the NTSB searched for a cause, with the hopes of preventing a similar incident. Elsewhere it doesn’t work quite the same. When a business jet crashed into a snowplow on takeoff from Moscow’s Vnukovo airport last year, the Russians quickly arrested the snowplow driver as well as the tower controllers. Outside the US, aircraft accidents are often seen as criminal events first, hence the need to find the culprit. Prosecutors are more like cops to me. They want a bad guy and within a very short period of time following the Germanwings crash, they pinned it on the co-pilot. But let me be clear … I’m not saying the co-pilot is not responsible for the accident. What I’m saying is that there is so much work yet to be done, so many more pieces of the crash to be investigated that I’m appalled at the direction the media coverage has taken. In a number of interviews, Lufthansa’s CEO Carsten Spohr repeated that the event was a one-off, making the chances of another like it quite slim. Our White House also strangely chimed in just hours after the crash explaining it didn’t appear to be a terrorist event. Now how could they possibly know that for certain just hours after the crash? There are so many unanswered questions, like if the co-pilot is responsible, why did he do it? Why does there appear to have been no post-impact fire? What mental health issues was the pilot actually suffering from? How much did the airline really know and when? What else was happening on-board the aircraft before the accident? We only have reports of a few select bits of the cockpit voice recording. We haven’t even located the flight data recorder, and no one’s even asking about it any longer. When I read comments from the Lufthansa people, they sounded more like a corporate defense strategy than facts surrounding an accident investigation. A few days after the crash, many airlines decided it was time to place someone else in the cockpit – like a flight attendant – when the other pilot leaves. So that just about covers it I guess. If the pilot hadn’t been alone, the crash would not have happened. We’ve located the problem, the bad guy is dead anyway, so let’s move on. Ask yourself how the same crash would have been handled in the U.S. I doubt you’d see an airline CEO on TV offering the media their selection of details aimed at keeping the company out of hot water. We airmen here in the U.S. should be extremely grateful for the existence of the NTSB, a group focused on investigating every last bit of evidence before determining a probable cause. Other airmen around the world – pilots, mechanics, air traffic controllers – can only dream of such an organization in their countries. And the people dreaming the most are those people still sitting in jails around the world. From Chicago, I’m Rob Mark. See you next time.
