Student Pilot Journal Podcast HD #38

Hello aviators! This episode is from October 2011. I wanted to give everyone an update on what Casey has been up to lately. His new job has been good for him, but it has meant fewer episodes as we try to get our schedules in sync to record and fly. I hope you enjoy the update and we hope to get back in the air soon.Download the Podcast

This is a flight that Casey and I took to KOBE (Okeechobee) for some breakfast. We flew the 152 and also tried out my new camera mount which performed quite well. Casey also gives us a few tips for traffic pattern ops and situational awareness while flying cross country.Download the Podcast

A very SHAKY instrument flying lesson!The camera I borrowed was horrible! Never again. Anyway, sorry for the bad quality but something is better than nothing I always say.  Stay focused in the panel and you will probably get through it without going into seizures. Stay tuned after the podcast for a good tip from yours truly about the usefulness of flight sims!Download the Podcast

This episode was intended to be a "minicast" interim episode but I think it is fine as an official post.  I thought it would be a good idea to talk some more about flight following and provide some in flight examples.  Enjoy!Download the Podcast

A flight to an Aircraft Salvage Yard.....There is something really fascinating about a salvage yard for aircraft.  It must be morbid curiosity for me as I look at the junked fuselages and think about their previous flights and owners.  Where are they? I imagine the planes coming off of the assembly line at one point all shiny and new.....What was their final flight? We had a good time this day.  On approach we were busily looking for the grass strip of zero two foxtrot alpha. It is not easy to spot when everything else is green around it. With my iPad in hand I was ready to help my friend Roy navigate the short 56nm trip.  No stick time for me....and I was perfectly content with technology at my side.Download the Podcast
