Multi-Engine Safety and Listener Mail. Welcome to the show about learning to fly, living to fly, and loving to fly.

News And Announcements:

Listener mail:

Listener mail (Russ) – do ICAO equipment codes matter for VFR flight following/radar services?

I’m an active-duty soldier working in Army Aviation and transitioning to civilian life. For as long as I can remember I’ve had a strong interest in flying. I’ve always been drawn to aviation in general. Until recently I had continued to put off my pursuit of aviation for financial reasons or whatever other excuses I had at the time. I enlisted as a rotorcraft mechanic hoping to get at least some form of a fix. It’s been great. I wanted more but still had too many excuses.

I was deployed for a while and didn’t have much to do in my off-time other than listen to podcasts or watch movies. So I thought I’d take a look and find all the aviation-related podcasts and at least learn a few things. Needless to say, in my time there I managed to listen to and catch up on nearly every episode of about 35 podcasts. It’s amazing how quickly you can get through content when you listen at double speed while working 12-hour shifts. I have more notes written in my notebooks than I know what to do with.

When I returned stateside I got my first class medical and enrolled in a flight training program. I’m also beginning my airframe and power-plant certificate next week as part of my exit program from active duty. I couldn’t be happier. 12 years since my first flight and I’m finally pursuing my goals. 29 feels like a late start, but so long as I can fly you’ll never see me without a smile on my face again.

The scholarship guide, the countless episodes of pointers, the stories from other pilots, advice on ways to accomplish flight training, the different ways to build time, recommended products or strategies, and the encouraging words from all the podcasters out there have been an invaluable resource. I’m still not entirely sure which route I want to take with my career. I have made it my goal to get through all my ratings, and give back to the community at the very least. If I can just influence one person the way all of you influenced me; whatever I do in aviation will be worth it.

Thank you all so much for everything you put into the community. You’ve really lit a fire under me. Keep putting out all that amazing content!
