Re: Volcanic Ashes

Hey Damià, well, I made it back home earlier than expected, was finally able to find a seat on the MCO-JFK-MXP route on 4/23 and I arrived back home yesterday morning. So I only added some 5 days to the trip, and since Jeb was so kind to have me as a guest at his place with the other guest being Jac...

Re: Volcanic Ashes

Well, turns out that river where Jeb lives is not that hidden any longer for me... :D I am staying for a few days here in Sarasota with Jack at Jeb's place, and then I will see what to do. Tomorrow morning Amy will pay a visit here flying the Kitfox. It's fun to spend time with other aviation buffs ...

Yes, the icelandic volcano... listen in on episode #181 and it will be mentioned in it too... ;) I am not exactly sure how I will be able to leave the US back to Europe, given the current conditions. I am very much torn in that I w...

Re: $2.13 XM Radio

Second that! We're just so spoiled with modern days technology in the cockpit! I wonder how many actually practice how to deal with a broken GPS or a broken EFIS in real life... let alone a broken XM weather! Our kind of airplanes don't need electrons or programs to fly, yet, so let's not become too...

Re: Episode #177 "AirJEB"

One last note on ADS-B, mostly for David or others who might have a better idea. On this page: http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ato/service_units/enroute/surveillance_broadcast/general_information/ in the FAQ I read this: What equipment is required? Either the Universal Acces...

Re: Episode #177 "AirJEB"

Last two things and then I shut up! :) First, on the LSAs into Canada, please note that it's only the aircraft that are now allowed to fly into Canada, but you will need to have a PPL in order to fly them into canadian airspace!

On the close encounter between the United 777 and the Cessna 182, Max Trescott wrote a couple of very informative blog entries.

Re: Episode #177 "AirJEB"

On ADS-B, there is a lot of good information at this FAA link: http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ato/service_units/enroute/surveillance_broadcast/ Since southern Florida was mentioned, the FAA has prepared a nice PDF writeup of the current situation, with 11 ADS-B ground stati...

Episode #177 "AirJEB"

Lots of interesting points raised in this episode, I will need to add some comments on the whole ADS-B story. Meanwhile, since you mentioned something that would inflate and fly, here's my take on this all thing: http://img547.imageshack.us/img547/5345/fib18006870.jpg It's made in Umbria, Italy, and...
