Re: ATC Privatization Derailed

Yeah you have to wonder what Schuster has up his sleeve and what he's going to pull at the eleventh hour.

Re: Meetup at Sun n' Fun 2018

I have booked a place to stay and will be rolling into LAL that Tuesday -- hope to catch the show live and in living color! Unfortunately can't stay past Friday due to time/family/work constraints, but hope to have a blast for the few days that I can be there! Since there is no official meetup, we n...

Bill Shuster, R-Pa., has announced he is no longer pursuing the separation of air traffic control from the FAA.

Re: UCAP #444 - "Into the Clag"

Wow it looks so much less "sterile" in that section now that the museum has placed so much more around the shuttle. When I was there in Jun 2017 there was a stage in front of the spacecraft, and and a presentation/discussion of Women in Aerospace going on with several members from the Air ...

Meetup at Sun n' Fun 2018

Any plans as of yet? I know I can be there this year, as SnF falls a week after the Masters Tournament for the first time in a few years! Still not sure if I'm going to be working Air Boss and Advisory for the week...

Re: List of 'must see' aviation destinations

A couple more... For those of you who travel to Germany, I highly recommend two museums: Auto & Technik Museum, Sinsheim - one of the few places in the world you can see the Concorde AND a Tu-144 next to each other... PLUS tour both inside!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auto_%26_Technik_Museum_...

UCAP #445 - "Whoa Nelly!"

RE: NJ Law for drunk UAV/UAS operation. Not sure why NJ felt it was necessary to put this one on the books. Part 107 already covers this topic... 5.15 Operations while Impaired. Part 107 does not allow operation of an sUAS if the remote PIC, person manipulating the controls, or VO is unable to safel...

UCAP #444 - "Into the Clag"

Jack, congrats for your first trip to Udvar Hazy! My first visit there was this past June, and like you I was just astounded at how big the place is! Two of my favorite aircraft on display are the Boeing 307 Stratoliner and the Dornier Do 335 Pfeil. The Stratoliner is graceful beauty of a bygone tim...

Re: UCAP443 - Domestic Dispute Landing

RE: Militarization I heard this on the podcast too, but chose to overlook it. However, I spent 20 years in the AF so I'm partial to uniforms. That said, I don't see airlines have having military-styles in their clothing or attitudes. Lastly, I have flown with a flight suit on many occasions and I mu...
