Episode 491 - "Circle of Flight"

I was listening with great interest the discussion concerning welding of aircraft fuselages, aluminum welding, MIG, TIG, stick welding, etc. and thought I would chime in. Dave is correct that aluminum is very difficult to weld due to the ability of heat to alter aluminum's characteristics, but it mi...

“A Dark and Stormy Morning" UCAP465

Gentlemen, First of all I hope that all of you had a very Merry Christmas. Second of all I wanted to add to the discussion as to why the pilot sits in the right seat of a helicopter. Jack, you suggested several compelling reasons as to why this is so. However, none of your thoughts are correct. At l...

Re: UCAP #442 - Bushing Migration

I just listened to the Podcast and wanted to add my $.02 to the discussion about the Athens Ben Epps Airport. Athens has had 2 different airlines in the past 13 years that I have lived there, both under the EAS (Essential Air Services) Program, and they had at least one before that. They have tried ...

UCAP #438 - "Abby-Normal"

I was listening to the podcast this morning on the drive to work, and I listened with great interest to all of it (great podcast, gentlemen - as usual), but I was most interested in the discussion of the Air Canada event at SFO. Jeb mentioned that the FAA had been working on a ground-based safety sy...

UCAP #433 - "International Cherry"

I was listening to the latest episode on an early drive to work this morning, and I have not quite finished it (No traffic driving to the Atlanta Airport at 4:30 in the morning, so the podcast was longer than the drive). I thought I would add just a couple of things - 1. A few years ago, a good frie...

Re: What Pilot Shortage? There's No Pilot Shortage!

Jeff, Certainly not next year, or even next decade, but I do think it is coming. At what point reality and technology intersect is unknown, but I do think it is inevitable. The air lines are already worrying about pilot availability keeping pace with growth as well as retirements. I just brought it ...

What Pilot Shortage? There's No Pilot Shortage!

I have believed for several years that this would be the airline industry's long-term answer to a pilot shortage. People thought that I was nuts for saying so. Apparently Boeing agrees with me -

Can Anybody ID This Airplane?

I was taxiing out last week in Bogota, Colombia, and saw this Colombian Air Force airplane. Those are some monster engines! I have no idea what it is, but thought that someone might be able to ID the model. It sort of reminds me of 30+ years ago I was in Japan when I was in the Marine Corps. The Jap...
