APG 200 – The Bicentennial Edition
3:05:21
Our "Official" 200th episode! You will notice that we are saying "we," "our," et cetera a lot more lately. The Airline Pilot Guy show has evolved into a team effort. Dr. Steph and Miami Rick joined the show last year, and now we're pleased to say that Captain Nick Anderson, aka Old.Pilot and "The Curmudgeon" has been invited to join the crew as well (I really hope he declines, though!) ;) Quite a surprise awaited me (Capt. Jeff) when I flew down to Miami to join Steph and Rick to record this episode. Apparently, a plan had been in the works for months (spearheaded by Capt. Al I'm told) to have some of the "Brits" fly over "The Pond" to join in the celebration. First Officer Jeff came down from the Philly area, too. A great time was had by all. If you trudge on to the end of this show, you will hear the emotion in my voice... how important this APG community is to me. To ALL of us. Enjoy!

APG 166 – Falling From The Sky? Don’t Think So.
3:30:57
Dr. Steph joins me on this flight! The Dreamliner works great, 24/7/248. Don't worry, I doubt you'll see them falling from the sky. Who knew? A 10-member panel from the National Research Council reveals the FAA was not delivering the system that had been promised and should "reset expectations" about what it is delivering to the public and the airlines that use the system. A couple of quick-thinking Aer Lingus pilots saved their plane and their 46 passengers last year when a thick layer of sea salt formed on the windscreen, obstructing their view of the runway for landing. Listen to the show to hear how they successfully landed. Stay tuned for how you can order the Acme Airlines coffee mugs and pint glasses.

APG 111 – NTSB Safety Alert, World Airways Shuts Down, Malaysia 370
2:01:44
The NTSB issued a Safety Alert last week reminding pilots to use vigilance when operating into the destination airport at night and when landing at an airport with others in close proximity. The Safety Alert outlines five measures pilots can take to avoid a wrong airport landing, and provides additional flight safety resources. Founded in 1948, World Airways recently announced the immediate cessation of all operations. World's parent company, Global Aviation Holdings, sited the inability to secure further funding from Cerberus, World’s first lien lender. As this episode is being recorded, more than three weeks has elapsed since the disappearance of Malaysia Flight 370. So far, not one shred of physical evidence of its supposed "crash" has materialized. That hasn't stopped the cable news channels from continuing their parade of "aviation experts," spending a majority of their broadcast hours talking endlessly about the disappearance. What did happen to the flight? In a nutshell, nobody knows. I went on a little bit of a rant in this episode. It's not the first time I've been irritated by WSJ columnist Holman Jenkins, who somewhat fashions himself an "aviation expert," apparently (well, why not? Everybody else in the world is). In his "piece" Someday, All Planes Will Be Drones, Jenkins drones on and on about how the skies would be safer with passenger flights being piloted, well, not piloted by humans. In fact, in his last paragraph, he states with utmost ignorance, "Passenger planes, once passengers realize the crew is mostly there to cause mistakes, will be fully automated even if a trained crew member is standing by to lend comfort." Mr. Jenkins, you are a fool. FEEDBACK/LINKS Nick Carson - Audio Feedback MLew in SLC - Instrument Rating Rotorcraft Owen - Build time in Alaska!

APG 110 – Malaysia 370 Update, Laser Crackdown, Go-Arounds
2:23:46
Malaysia 370 Update - Just when you thought the Malaysian government's Flight 370 investigation couldn't get worse, a recent announcement that "there is no unreasonable doubt that the airline went down in the ocean west of Perth" was met with resistance and criticism. At the time of this episode's recording, there is still no physical evidence of the supposed crash. A California man was sentenced to 14 years in a federal prison for pointing a laser at a Fresno police helicopter. I hope this will help send the message to others that intentionally aiming a laser at aircraft is not a prank, but a federal crime with very serious consequences.

APG 109 – Malaysia 370, US Airways A320 Nose Gear Collapse, Delta B757 Loses Wing Panel
2:11:54
The Malaysia Airlines B777 is still missing. We may never know what happened. The only winners here are the big cable news outlets, which are reaping huge viewing numbers by continuing to sensationalize the investigation. Apparently, a steady string of "aviation experts" is helping to hold our interest... even if the credentials of some of these so-called "experts" is highly questionable. What happened to US Airways 1702? Multiple eyewitness accounts say the airplane became airborne before attempting to return to the runway, and after a large bounce, came down hard on the nose landing gear, collapsing it. Was it windshear? Tailstrike? A Delta B757 lost a large fiberglass panel from the top of the right wing as it started its initial descent into ATL. The flight landed safely in ATL.

APG 106 – Fire on a Plane, How to Survive a Plane Crash
2:28:44
The most interesting story of this past week has to be the Etihad flight from Melbourne, VI to Abu Dhabi, UAE, which diverted to Jakarta, Indonesia after two separate fires in two separate lavatories were started. After four hours of investigation by Indonesian police, all passengers were allowed to re-board the flight. Somewhere over the Indian Ocean, another THREE fires were set. There are now reports that a female has been detained for further questioning. Turns out that the co-pilot who threatened to crash the Ethiopia Airlines plane before flying it to Geneva was "in mourning for his dead uncle." Yeah. I always feel like hijacking airliners and seeking asylum when somebody dies in my family [sarcasm]. Listener Vernon from Colorado sent me a link to a great HuffPo article, How to Survive a Plane Crash. Great stuff.

APG 105 – Ethiopian Airlines Flight Hijacked, United Flight Severe Turbulence
2:09:30
Don’t leave hijacking an airliner to the amateurs, not when you can do it yourself. That’s apparently the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 702 co-pilot’s philosophy. Hailemedhin Abera Tegegn felt threatened by the Ethiopian government… enough so that he thought it a good idea to lock the captain out of the cockpit, fly the jet to Geneva instead of Rome, and seek political asylum from the Swiss government. Problem is, it will be hard to overlook the fact that he essentially kidnapped the 202 passengers and the flight’s crew, which is a crime that may leave him in the slammer for 20 years. Oops. Here’s the ATC audio, courtesy of LiveATC.net. A Nepal Airlines Twin Otter crashed last week, killing all 18 on board. The investigation continues, but several listeners on frequency reported that the aircraft attempted to divert to Bhairahawa Airport due to icing after the aircraft had flown into freezing rain. Severe Turbulence - A United Airlines 737 flight from Denver to Billings experienced a severe upset, injuring three cabin crew members and two passengers. While it isn’t yet clear what caused the episode, I suspect it may have been caused by Mountain Wave turbulence, which is common this time of year in the Western US mountain states.

APG 104 – Marshalling, Powerbacks
1:39:31
Well, this one's a crazy one. I got all caught up in the winter storm which swept through the Southeastern US up to New England, and tried to record a show in the midst of it. A 45-year-old Ukrainian man attempted to highjack a Pegasus Airlines flight, but ended up in the original destination city... although he wasn't counting on jailhouse accommodations. 2,000 very unhappy travelers in China started a riot at a Henan Province airport. Seems customer service was a little lacking. The FBI announced a new crackdown on pointing lasers at aircraft, including a provision to reward those who come forward with information about individuals who engage in this dangerous activity. The FAA released the final rule Prohibition on Personal Use of Electronic Devices on the Flight Deck, effective in 60 days.

APG 103 – Pilot Shortage Arrives Sooner and It's Worse than Expected
2:22:46
Recorded in Canton, OH on February 5, 2014. The FAA has downgraded India's Airline Safety Rating, and the Hindustan Times is not very happy about it. A girl thrown from a plane that crashed at San Francisco International Airport died before she was twice run over by fire trucks, according to a city-issued report that contradicted a coroner's finding that the teen survived the crash and was killed by the vehicles. An ex-TSA "agent" who has been writing an anonymous blog has finally come out of the screening closet, and tells us all about the behind the scenes drama in an article on Politico Magazine. The only thing of interest is the "Insider’s TSA Dictionary." Everything else is stuff we've already heard. Just move along through the ineffective screening machine... nothing to see here. Now, this is brilliant. A Chinese man wines and dines at the China Eastern Airlines First Class Lounge for a year, for free. Listen in to the show to hear how he got away with it. Justin Bieber continues to embarrass his Canadian homeland. Now, on a chartered private jet, the smoke from his marijuana use causes the pilots to don oxygen masks for much of the flight. Very classy. It seems that the pilot shortage has arrived earlier and is having a bigger effect than most people imagined. That's good news for all of you prospective professional airline pilots.
