Bob Hoover, dang that would be cool. I like the Aerial Tweto idea.

Training for my IFR so, interested in anything IFR motivation related.

Great podcast!

Great podcast!
An IFR-specific episode would be fun. How about Field Morey or his son? I bet they'd have some great stories and advice from their many West Coast IFR Adventure students and flights...

Re: Future Topic Ideas

I liked your studentpilotcast myself. Loved your audio in the cockpit - then pausing - then telling the story - then back to you and the ATC on your solo - just felt like I was "there" with you. The Pilot Cast is more conversational, which is great, but it would be cool to "go inside a flight" like you did with your studentpilotcast.

Have a listen to Kent's episode where he was flying into AirVenture. Or the recent episode of the New Pilot Podblog on flying the Hudson River Exclusion

Yes the Hudson river/East river tour, one of my favorite flights! This was also my first flight in a small plane, my $90 discovery flight before I started flight lessons (1998). The "Skyline Route" (in Class-B is the only way I fly it these days. Sometimes they give me 1500 feet and sometimes 2000.

I just feel a lot safer under ATC control with all the tour choppers in the exclusion but I really do miss the lower altitude view. I guess one day when there's "lighter" traffic, I'll fly the exclusion again

I may be able to put you in touch with a Concorde pilot (Braniff, the only US carrier to ever goerate Concorde in revenue service).

Re: Future Topic Ideas

Flew the Hudson River Class-B exclusion yesterday around 1:30pm, after I got off work at noon. My pilot buddy couldn't make it due to work so I went solo. Had an awesome flight! Stiff 30kt winds out of the west kept it fun

This time I decided to fly the corridor at 1200ft and self announce at the mandatory reporting points rather than up high in the bravo (1500-2000 assigned by Newark and La Guardia towers). Flew along the south shore of Long Island and Queens in contact with JFK and below the bravo. Funny thing happened. As I flew at 500ft along the beaches and just before reaching Coney Island, the controller cleared me into the JFK Class-B at or below 1000ft. This was just as I was about to leave the +500ft floor and reach the 1500ft floor, which meant I would have started climbing anyway .

What I really wanted to do was go land on 31R which was at my 2 o’clock position….but I didn’t want to get hit up with an enormous landing fee!!! No I do not get any employee discounts

When I reached the Hudson, I was the only fixed wing in the corridor and there were only a few tourist choppers around to keep tabs on. The G-1000 TIS is a great tool in helping you spot traffic! However, I still remembered to keep my head on a swivel and eyes out the windows.

I think I’ve found the secret to really enjoying this flight. Fly on a weekday when all of the weekend warriors are at work or in school. Or at night, which I haven't done...YET.

I have not flown the Hudson River route in a very long time but, it is probably the best scenic night flight in the US. Definitely do it!

Re: Future Topic Ideas

Why not a show on Lighter than air? It's been ten years for me, but i do have 80 hours in a blimp. "lighter than air". Landing fee by weight does not apply

edit... Your guys show rocks, keeps me busy in between jobs on the road.

Out of curiosity, where did you pick up 80 hours in an airship?

Re: Future Topic Ideas

I'd like to hear more interviews with commercial pilots with interesting specialties such as water bomber pilots. Perhaps a show about civilian search and rescue organizations like Canada's CASARA. Or some interviews with bush pilots in even more isolated places than alaska like Labrador or Nunavut.

Not the PilotCast, but the latest episode of Airplane Geeks features an Air National guard C-130 firebomber pilot!

Great ideas Brian! I've never heard of CASARA before. Since you're in Goose Bay... You know anyone who fits any of the above categories? PM me!

Thanks,

Kent

PS I think I have two whole episodes of cool flying stuff just myself! Hoping to hook up with Tiffany next week in Oshkosh and maybe record some stuff with Bill on the phone.

Um, I'll believe it when I hear it? We're in Camp Bacon, so if you don't stop by, you'll have hell to pay to your boss! LOL
