There are a lot of paths to a job in aviation. Some are unconventional. And sometimes the job itself is unconventional. Welcome to this week's episode of SimpleFlight radio. Join us as Marc and Brandon spend time with Wayne Temple, a Helicopter Line Pilot and COO of Wake Aviation (wakeaviation.com). His story about how he became the only active Jou…
 
All pilots are passionate about aviation. It's the one thing that creates a bond. As Marc likes to say, it's our Common Unity. And that's what makes us a COMMUNITY. But it doesn't stop there. There are families within the family. Some are based on aircraft types (there are more than 100 aircraft type clubs), while others are pilot segmented groups …
 
Marc commonly says that YouTube is his favorite app. The main reason comes down to access to education and people doing really cool things. And as no surprise, Marc spends a lot of time watching aviation videos. One of the "Tubers", Mike Ojo (mojogrip.net) became a favorite of Marc's, due to his love of aviation and diversity of topics he covered. …
 
With Covid-19 being so front and center in everyone's mind, it's very common and appropriate to hear people sending wishes for safety and good health. Certainly, SimpleFlight wishes the same for you and yours. The path to getting to a healthier state, starts with a cultural change that now requires us to stand apart physically. Ironically, the desi…
 
With our reoccurring theme of aviation bucket lists,, many would say flying into KOSH during Airventure is near the top of the list. But once you've done that, how do you top it? How about being a part of one of the mass arrivals. Sounds pretty good, but how do you prep GA pilots to take on the risk and responsibility of flying in formation to the …
 
It seems every pilot has an aviation bucket list. Sometimes its a type of airplane, an experience, or a destination. And sometimes it's all three. Regardless, the lists are wide ranging and not often duplicated. But there is an exception. A flight to Alaska is found on most lists. It's easy to understand why. No other state is as dependent on gener…
 
With a late cancellation of SimpleFlight's guest, our listeners came to the rescue. We asked them if they had any questions, and they came through in spades. Armed with topics to discuss, we knew we would need help with the ATC-related questions. Enter repeat guest, Eddie Trujillo, our favorite C90 (Chicago Approach) air traffic specialist. From th…
 
When Marc earned his PPL in the mid-70's, he learned from young CFI's, who were on a path to the airlines. Getting a job was tough, as young pilots were competing with military pilots and those that were having their training paid for by the GI Bill. Fast forward 40 years, and while it's still tough to get with the majors, the candidate pool and jo…
 
Happy Holidays!!! With the end of the year in sight, Brandon and Marc reflected on different areas of general aviation that have an opportunity to improve with just a little effort from all of us that love the industry so much. Certainly there are many highlights as well, so the guys touched on some of the things aviation got right. All of us are i…
 
If you haven't listened to the October 13 podcast, we suggest you take a few moments and do so now. You'll get a chance to meet two members of the Leading Edge Flying Club (KPWK), who each have a dream of plane ownership. During the show, we learned they each brought a different mission, budget, and philosophy to their decision making process. Both…
 
For those of you that read Rinker Buck's memoir, "Flight of Passage", you'll understand the romance associated with a cross country flight in a Piper Cub. If you haven't read the story, you only need to love General Aviation to understand the smile that comes with a low and slow flight of 1500 nautical miles across the Western and Midwestern United…
 
With a forecast for snow on Halloween in Chicago, the topic of winter has entered our vocabulary too early this year. Yet, with its arrival, the topic of cold weather operations seems right on schedule. Non-pilots commonly ask if GA pilots fly in the winter. After all, won't icing be an issue. These same people are amazed to hear that its often the…
 
Whether it's Trade-A-Plane or Controller.com, many GA pilots spend a fair amount of time window shopping for their dream plane. It's fun and results in a smile. But then the spreadsheet comes into play as the prospective plane owner starts to rationalize and compare rental costs vs. the cost of ownership. Soon, the math starts to make sense and it'…
 
Since 2004, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA) has been recognizing its members for extraordinary performance in turning a potentially bad situation into a "non-event". Or as they call it, "A Save". Named after the first Air Traffic Controller, The Archie League Medal of Safety awards are announced each September to controller…
 
A wise person once made the statement that if your smile is bigger on Friday than it is on Monday, it's time to find a new job. Big smiles on Monday aren't that common, but neither is tonight's guest, Al Palicki, General Manager for Signature Flight Support, at Chicago Executive Airport. Al tells us he feels like he hasn't had a day of work in the …
 
The speed at which September arrived is indicative of the whirlwind summer the SimpleFlight crew experienced. Our tight schedules impacted the quantity of shows, but quality remained high. As we planned for the upcoming months it was clear that available free time for Al, was limited at best. For that reason, Al has decided to step away from Simple…
 
Oshkosh 2019 is in the books!!! It was a record breaking event, with many noteworthy outcomes that are sure to fuel an exciting year in aviation. One item we like, is that OSH represents the anniversary of our first show, 7 YEARS AGO!!! We can't think of a better way to kick off Season 8, than with a repeat guest and a SimpleFlight favorite, Boldme…
 
For some of us, our aviation dream started with a goal to earn a private pilot certificate. On this week's SimpleFlight Radio episode, you'll meet Andrew Holmes, whose dream was to buy a jet, but knew that the process must start with him learning to fly, and to do so with dedication, patience, and no short-cuts. What Andrew learned during his train…
 
Sometimes getting to sporting events is quite the hassle, often taking multiple days to enjoy a 3 hour game. Well now, the game has changed. Listen in to this week's episode of SimpleFlight Radio as Marc and Al sit down with Todd Rubin, of Big Game Air (biggameair.com). Todd and his business partner wanted to go see a college football game and for …
 
Pilots and Avgeeks share a special bond which can usually be described in one word.... Passion. In today's world, it's not uncommon to find pilots that are making their way back into the sky after an extended hiatus. What is less common is to come across a pilot that after being "bitten" by the flying bug, immersed himself into the journey that inc…
 
We often think of airports as just pieces of concrete, maybe a control tower, and a place to land. Its easy to forget about the people behind the scenes putting their best foot forward to make your airport run! This week, we sit down with Jamie Abbott, the Executive Director at our home airport - Chicago Executive (KPWK). Jamie has some incredible …
 
Ask most pilots, and they will tell you that learning to fly was one of the most rewarding and challenging things they have done in life. And while similarities exist, each pilot's journey is unique. Something that can be depended on are the many challenges that will be faced throughout the training process. This week's episode of SimpleFlight Radi…
 
As a General Aviation pilot, many of us think of flight planning in terms of weather, NOTAMs, fuel planning, altitude selection, routing, timing, and ensuring the pilot and plane are capable of making the flight. From there it's executing the plan. Simply, Plan The Flight and Fly The Plan. The burden is on the PIC. In the world of the airline pilot…
 
It's a surprise to no one that the most common conversations in aviation, center on people and planes. And why not... it makes for great hangar flying. This week, Al and Marc were reminded of another very important aspect of aviation... The Airport. We're not talking about the runways, but how the airport serves as a hub for bringing people and pla…
 
Ask a pilot, which is their favorite plane, and they may answer with a plane they've never flown before. We know that sometimes an airplane "speaks" to a person. It may be the history, the sound, the performance, or maybe it's because of it's lines and appearance. LIN 2010, Cirrus continued its streak of innovations by introducing the Xi appearance…
