PIREPS: We want YOU to be on UCAP

Postby jackhodgson » Fri Dec 18, 2009 11:25 am

As an experiment I'd like to ask you all for some help with a new way for us to hear from listeners.

I'd like you to record a short audio clip saying hi.

Pretty brief, like 30 secs or less. Just saying something like:

"Hi this is John Doe from Jones Airfield in Springfield Missouri." Then add some personal note, like your flight ratings, hours, aircraft type, a fun recent flight.

"I'm a Student Pilot flying a Cherokee Warrior and I just did my solo cross country."
"I'm a 500 hour pilot and I just bought a Skyhawk SP. Eat your heart out!"

This may be a really cool idea, or it may be a dud.

I'm thinking that I'll drop one or two of these into each ep of the podcast.

Keep them very casual and fun. Don't worry about sound quality. If all you've got is your laptop builtin mic it'll probably be fine. A wav, aiff, or mp3 file works. Try to mail them to pireps@uncontrolledairspace.com. If you can't email a file that big, let me know and I'll create a way for you to upload them.

But keep them short. If you have more to say, divide it into multiple complete, standalone clips.

Thanks.

Mine was on an episode a while back (before May of this year, since I was still a student pilot), so yes.

I didn't get very many, and I believe I've used all of them *

I'd love to get more. Send 'em in.

* If anyone sent one in that didn't get used, let me know so I can track it down.
