AG and RH are picking up where the Tom and Ray left off... RIP. OB has replaced Car Talk as my new favorite voice talk show. This is the most interesting, educational and hilarious aviation podcast around.

Description

RH and AG are two experienced air traffic controllers and pilots that host a weekly show answering listener questions, breaking down complex aviation topics, and relating their experiences to everyday occurrences in the national airspace system. The hosts and guests do not represent the FAA or NATCA and express their own views and opinions.

Episode Date

3.  Suggested text for Comment: "I am writing to express my support for opening a rulemaking proceeding regarding the potential repeal of the VOR Test logging requirement.  This rule has out lived its usefulness and creates an unnecessary burden upon pilots and aircraft owners and operators."


4. PATRON Romeo Whiskey sent in some practicing tips for November Whiskey in OB 90.  “Download a few snippets of audio from Liveatc (the recordings are kept for 30 days). This is the link for Dayton but can be replaced with any ICAO code at the end:  https://www.liveatc.net/archive.php?m=kday Download the podcast app Overcast (unfortunately this is iOS only) and sign up for a paid subscription (it's only $10 for the year)  Load the ATC files to Overcast (note this has to be done on the website) and you can listen on fast mode plus use smart speed which speeds up the audio when there is silence.”

OB81: EAA AirVenture Oshkosh NOTAM
02:05:51

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 Notice to Airmen (NOTAM)

Topic of the show: RH and AG discuss the EAA AirVenture NOTAM; specifically, arrival procedures.  We want everyone flying to EAA AirVenture to thoroughly read the NOTAM and be familiar with the details. According to the EAA “The free 32-page booklet is an absolute must if you're flying an aircraft to Oshkosh. It outlines all arrival/departure procedures, radio frequencies, Wittman Regional Airport details, and much more.  Although many of the procedures are similar to previous years, there are updates in nearly every area to enhance safety, efficiency, and convenience for the thousands of airplanes expected at The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration. The EAA AirVenture NOTAM is required reading and should be part of a pilot's pre-flight preparation.”

Fly safely and we will see you at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh!  

A special thank you to Mike from The Flying and Life Podcast.  Mike sat down with RH to give some commentary on the details of the AirVenture NOTAM since he has done the arrival procedures himself.   RH and Mike discuss NTSB Major Fly-In Tips. 

Another special thanks to Hillel for his great audio feedback!  Links mentioned in his audio:

Episode 51 Show Notes

Opening Chit Chat about snowpocolypse in the TRIAD area.  Thank you, @avgeekandrew for the great picture.

 Topic of the show 5:42

“ER” asked about Special VFR:  “There is one thing that is still a mystery: SVFR. When\How do you grant this magical clearance? What kind of magic do you possess to let me skim clouds in reduced visibility situations without the risk of hitting other things? How does ATC treat a SVFR aircraft?”

AG and RH use the JO 7110.65X and the AIM to break down the topic and answer his questions.  Check out this great article on SVFR from boldmethod.

For the pilots out there, tell us who your aviation role model was before you made the leap and got your training?  Was it a family member, movie star, or the pilot that flew your first commercial flight?

“Tango Mike, The Fire Truck Guy” sent in some great audio feedback about controller’s diagnosing pilot’s with medical emergencies.  How do controllers train to recognize these events and more importantly, how do the controllers help the pilot’s in need?  What happens when a pilot demonstrates diminished mental capacity or shows signs of hypoxia or possible intoxication?

Audio from a distressed/hypoxic pilot and interaction with ATC.

Audio from an incident involving a drunk pilot and ATC recognizing the problem and alerting authorities.  Great job, ATC!  The controllers were honored at the Archie League Awards banquet in September.  To learn more about the Archie League Awards, click here. 

 To watch the video, click here.

Hosted annually by the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), Communicating For Safety (CFS) is the aviation industry’s leading conference focusing on safety, technology and building relationships. This three-day event is unique in that it's the only conference of its kind to focus specifically on the air traffic needs of all members of the aviation community who are affected by the National Airspace System (NAS).
