Uncontrolled Airspace

News & conversation about the world of General Aviation flying.

Every two-weeks the UCAP gang gathers in the virtual hangar to talk about all things GA.
You can listen-in as some of General Aviation's most knowledgeable, opinionated,
and plain-speaking characters, do some online hangar-flying.


 Team UCAP |  Episodes |  Remembering Dave Higdon |

Heartbroken.

It is with great sadness that we must tell you that our dear friend Dave Higdon has passed away. Dave was a co-founder of the Uncontrolled Airspace podcast, and a colleague of unlimited talent and generosity.

Dave Higdon 1949-2022

We'll both have much more to say about Dave in future podcast episodes, with others who also knew him well. We have every intention of continuing the podcast, though it certainly will not be the same without Dave.

We'll pass along information about arrangements when we know them. But in the meantime we're sure Dave would say, "Go flying!"
