Building successful lives, one plane at a time with TeenFlight,

"Successful lives one plane at a time at the as air venture in oshkosh a group of oregon teenagers stand beside an rv. Twelve light sport aircraft answering questions. They have spent eighteen months building the plane on display and they are eager to put their expertise on display as well. The adults who quiz them are rightly impressed. The students are with teen flight. The high school arm of airway science for kids or ask which serves students in and around portland oregon team. Flight is the brainchild of erin. Figura ted miller and van's aircraft founder. Richard van grunsven. Who wanted to honor the memory of ask. Founder bob strickland by creating a program for high school students team flight. Young people are given an opportunity to build an aircraft that they will eventually be able to fly. The student built aircraft has showcased at oshkosh and then sold to fund the next build session. Van grunsven noted that this is the kind of program he would have loved as a young man for the first build. Classy offered space in his hangar at the aurora airport and agreed to oversee construction of one of his company's own kit planes the rv twelve quote. The twelve is a well-developed kit plane. He said we were confident. That with the help of adult mentors with the right group of motivated kids. They could get the job done. And the sex. A little. Bit about eric krause. Who was a high school junior when he joined the inaugural teen flight class in two thousand nine. He said whenever. I tell people in school about the program they'd say oh you're building an rc. Plane krause said nobody ever believed we were building actual aircrash if the naysayers could have seen the students mechanical skills on day one their skepticism would have been justified said krause. Some kids didn't know which side of a screwdriver to hold a few years. After graduation cross took his team flight build plan to interview and discuss the process of building an aircraft as a teenager the interviewers impressed and he landed the job. he's now a manager advanced aircraft and he believes the program taught him not only general mechanical skills but leadership skills as well the program's goal is not produce the next generation of aviators or aviation engineers students pursue those goals and ask provides as much support to them as it can including scholarships to pursue flight. Training figure keeps a broader goal in mind when thinking about the program's impact quote. Most of the kids that we work with go on and do interesting things and do creative things so they use the skills they learned in teen flight. He said we like to say that. We're not really teaching teenagers. How to build airplanes. Were teaching them how to have a fulfilling life with good interesting careers and to be excited about it. Van grunsven echoed that sentiment. We have found that the program can be most helpful for kids who maybe don't fit in on other things and maybe aren't doing well in school but when they're able to work with airplanes they get excited. He said we've had parents tell. Their children's grades went up after they went into the program. They work harder and they do better great story and i wish there were more programs like this around the united states and around the world

Hangar Flying to Favorite Airports

"Let's kick things off. and. Let's start sort of sort of closer to home of the three of us come from different parts of the country and different experiences. all around, but Let's start here in the mid and just kind of round. Robin sort to work our way out so tom that you kick it off. Of your favorite One of your favorite Midwest airports. Sure well. Obviously, we all. We all know and love wittman regional airport here in here in oshkosh which. A lot of people don't get to experience during the other fifty one weeks of the year, but it's a very vibrant little airport on I guess it's kind of unique in that you know we have this giant runway lay out that. You know in in many ways serves the needs of the tenants airport, but also another ways you know uniquely serves the needs of Va.. So it's, it's a very big airport for. For what it is, that's kind of neat but. But yeah kind of going a little farther afield of of. I all A- Wisconsin That is sixty three Charlie if I remember correctly. I look. Central County, airport. Is a little grass strip about twenty miles thirty miles, maybe north west of of Oshkosh. That has three grass runways including one. That actually has a parallel grass taxiway. And plenty of space departure airplanes, they even have a little bit of a campsite with a with a fire ring and. Some showers that are available and stuff like that, so you can come in and camp but it is the absolute epitome of a grassroots airport, and the really neat thing that they do at Iowa is on every Friday. They host a lunch for members of the community as well as members of the classic car community locally. And just fly in there pay a couple of bucks for lunch and on a good day in the summer you'll see I think their record is similar north of eighty airplanes. So that's like a really really amazing annual fly in that we do every every week up here. That place really is so much fun. like you said multiple grass runways and number one. When you when you told me that you're you're airstrip. Airport has a grass runway. You know already sold when tell me has more than one than I. Just swoon a little bit. That's so cool and they've got their. Big Open sort of hangar style clubhouse, and there's a million airplane models hanging from the ceiling and pictures all around all kinds of cool history, and you know a great cast of characters. Food is always amazing. Now one thing that Tom United talked about this before, and we've. We've been up there. Many times in order for them to to make this work into serve food without necessarily. Having to call themselves restaurant you know they're still. They still have To adhere to and everything of course, but basically you join. The is the Central County Sport Flyers. Central, county flyers associated. Center County Flyers, association, and a lifetime membership is something like eleven dollars, and so you get there? You show your membership card, and then you are part of the Social Club and you can, you can eat at. Boy It's it's well worth it. You still pay for the lunch. But, just a just a blast to go up there. See what kind of airplanes come in. You mentioned classic cars being a big thing up there. One of the biggest car shows in the country, if not the biggest actually held up there, and I allowed kind of out of the way out of the way spot and that culture pervades around. I think so many of us who love airplanes can appreciate. Cars and motorcycles and other vintage machinery, to yeah, and you mentioned the CL-. The Central County Flyers. Association I believe under Wisconsin Law. If you're in a social club, it has to have some kind of a common purpose so in order to join the Central County Fires Association you must. Attest that you are dedicated to the promotion of General Aviation. That is something that I don't think any of us would have any trouble doing. and. I'm willing to go on record. Yes, we can. We can manage that. So Chris, how about you? What what are you got in the Mid West you like, so? I'M GONNA turn slightly south and talk about the fond lack airport Fund lack airport. I spent a couple of days at it a couple of weeks ago because they let a stage, the Huey there as we're moving our new edition into the museum. And I didn't realize how busy that little airport is that we had a couple really nice clear days and I was blown away. That was a that was. A Busier airport does few days. I, was there, but what really stands out for me is the early trips when I would come from Pennsylvania to hear you know fund. Lack was the first. SORTA signed. That something was different. You heading towards something great, you know you're you're coming up forty one. It's just on the left side of forty one and like you'd go by this normal general aviation look airport and there'd be like a hell diver sitting next to the road. See. You knew that like that's not normal. You know and there'd be a Corsair there or and. It was it was basically overflow for the show and They basically had their own air show down there. I mean you just walk around looking at some of the coupons just park down there either you know someone rides or waiting their turn to get into the field here Nash cash in but it was always that I like I remember. It was probably pretty dangerous because we would always likes trainer. I'm probably not pay close attention to the roads. We should pass and fond lack airport just to. See what was out, and what was there and it really really helped peak the excitement of close out ten hour trip

Flying Into a DITCH

"Somebody wrote in saying that flying over water was a hole in their training, and is there anything they can do? Of course they can take anything they can do to prepare for flying over water. In this case in the Caribbean on it brings up a great point because the entire reason we. We created the airplane camp trip. islands of the Pacific northwest was to cover this particular. Particular hole in training. There's just not a lot out there about what it might be like to ditch an airplane or how to prepare, you know we've all read opened the doors before impact and you know, wear your your life jacket, but be beyond that. Will you know what is there so so I will say I off in this sounds like an unashamed sales pitch, but Maybe it is. On the island trip covers all that we get a life raft from winslow, one of these five thousand dollar liferafts that you're supposed to pack on board when you fly over water, we give everybody time in a sea plane, so you can kind of. Impact on the water is like we have ferry pilots on staff. People like Peter Lert who have crossed the north, Atlantic, more than fifty times, and we, we really try to cover this knowledge but I'll do the best I can here in the podcast to tell you some of the major points, and some of the stories that I conveyed those pilots that come to the airplane camp. We kind of a campfire evening talks, and some of those stories. Some of the kind of knowledge we can pass down is is really powerful. so first of all. Let's just cover the basics I mean. If you're not within power off gliding distance from shore, you should be wearing a life jacket and you should probably wear the kind that sailors us that aren't inflated. Of just their little tubes like snakes that go around your neck. and you should take out. The automatic inflates co two cartridge so that if the aircraft fills up with water, the life jacket doesn't deploy in the aircraft right, but that you can easily deployed once. You're clear the airplane. and you should investigate if you're going for long over water flights a liferaft like the one I described from winslow. One of the we do tell people in the ferry. Pilots convey for to us. Is that the Life Jack? The life raft really has to be readily accessible I mean in a perfect world on your lap. Really so you have to have it in a location in the airplane where you can just grab it. It's pretty common knowledge in any survival situation. Ditching included that what you're only gonNA. Have the things that you're wearing. So you know putting that whole picture together. If you're by yourself, you'd probably want to be wearing survival vast full of gear. Maybe dye markers signal mirrors on first aid kits, things like that on and also a lot, a personal afo tation device a PF de around your neck with the. Automatic inflate inflation cartridge out and a life. Raft if need be just. Maybe arm's distance in between the front seat in the seats on the just easily grab. now having said all that I'm GONNA. Tell you a story. The most enlightening story that I've ever heard because there's not a lot of information out there about what it's like to actually hit the water outside of the advanced pilot flight manual where Bill Kirschner talks a little bit about you know ditching in a in a fixed gear airplane which? is most likely. GonNa Flip GonNa hit once, and then Kirschner describes the second hit as a flip, sometimes the first hit the flip. so it's a pretty violent impact outside of that book. I haven't encountered a lot of information but I did see a lecture at Oshkosh. One year, probably the most valuable lecture at ever seen at Oshkosh gentlemen and a two ten who ditched in Lake Erie near put in Bay outside of Cleveland in a to ten, so he had gear, the gear was up, and he ditched. Everybody survived the ditching, and he ditched next to a ferryboat, which is a wise idea. If you're an open water, next to any boat. Really and somebody onboard. The ferry boat captured video, so you were able to listen to this lecture while watching video of the actual event. And he described the landing itself as very very smooth in a retractable gear airplane. He described like someone grabbing the tail and pulling to a hard stop, and he said that immediately after the airplane came to a stop, the water level was pretty much at the Lindbergh. Reference right there at the window. You know the forward window just on the pilot side. And he had forgotten to do two things he'd forgotten to open the doors and he'd forgotten to lock the baggage compartment so because the doors weren't open. The airplane floated there for a second, and he had a chance to turn to everybody and say hey, is everybody okay on? Everyone said yes, under your seat belts, and which point. He opened the door, I think he had to open the window I. The airplane flooded. Now, he was a very big guy, so he was able to lean into the door and get it open. One risk of not opening the door ahead of time would be that you couldn't get it open. Due to the pressure. Until you flooded the airplane but he did say it was valuable to have that moment. You know floating for everybody. Because the minute the door opened the airplane nosedive to the bottom of the lake about fifteen feet down. Everybody Swam Free Except the woman in the very back seat, so in the to ten is a six seater. She panicked and tried swimming up through the window, the plastic window in the baggage compartment so he dove down once he realized someone was missing open to the baggage door because it wasn't locked, forgotten to lock it and pulled her out by her feet. All of this is on video from the ferry boat. It's a it's an interesting story. Because of you know the how it played out for him to have. The doors closed versus open was interesting. And thinking through locking the baggage compartment. If anyone does need to get in there and rescue, you They're going to be able to do that if it's locked so. Anyway I hope that sort of helps, organize thoughts on just flying over water in

Color-coded Runways

"Let me tell you that this is borderline genius. If you ask me, this is just borderline genius all right? Let's color code the runways. I like that it's it's. KINDA UNIQUE DEER VALLEY Because they have a lot of rocks it wouldn't work a lot of other locales OKO although. Fake being what it is, we would probably discover that. Harrison Ford is colorblind but. That was Hodgson agent. Now is just an easy Joko. It's too easy. Sorry about that Harrison. I know he's a listener and It's kind of a clever idea. So this is we found this from a listener I think he's a listener, but a tweet twitter guy Ryan Ewing Nine high-ranking guy. What did I say? You Twitter Guy Twitter? Guy Yeah I. Don't know what the on twitter at twitter guy. We're all twitter guys in this day and age. He tweeted he tweeted. The Phoenix area is one of the most popular regions for flight training as such mistakes do happen. Runway landings have occurred Deer Valley airport. He writes owned by the city of Phoenix Arizona has a unique solution to prevent this different colored rocks surrounding each runway. So basically the what what I would think of as being the grass around the runway apparently is gravel. Zona 'cause grasping grow real quickly. You said wrong way. That's not correct. Wrong runway wrong runway landings. Oh! If I said runway. That was a mistake. You're absolutely right. That was Corrigan Corcoran. Different meaning different meaning. ANYWAYS so they've done apparently have done it with colored gravel. The terrain surrounding the runway and taxiways has a distinct color to it and but I want to know whether ATC, do they say you know land on Purple? Runway, purple instead of instead of landing on on the green dot at Oshkosh. Read read one roster. I can't say one way. Runway Yeah Right. Valley. QUIT GLENN! Wait. Never. Only one drawback or Weakness in it. Being told to land on the color runway doesn't tell you which way on the colored runway will now. That's true. True, but you they could say. Let's see what are. Let's just assume that these are two seven and nine there probably not exactly that. Zuma would picture. It should cut down on the confusion on. is at this piece. Is Strip payment or that? Oh! This is the one surrounded by green now which way on that runway? It's seventy five. Seventy five, so they'll say land on runway to five purple or I don't. Know they'll say land on runway to five left the purple one, which happens to be perfect. Yeah, that'd be an interesting question, Ryan, if you're a listener Give us anything in the in the in the follow up in the responses here, let's see. Someone else made my hair. Practice four joke, but there's a lot of colorblind jokes. CH-. Help for blind pilots. That's that's. This is also true. Well. That's yeah I know. Are Up sorry. From flight DECK IS HE THERE'S A. Problem, with death pilots, because they just don't listen. Higgin hi. Let's just discard this recording is. Really really know all right so. colorizing runways. I I hadn't thought of that I hadn't thought about the. Air! Venture colored dots, thing which apparently is wildly effective. I've haven't landed on those runways during those type. Jeb. You have obviously. Is it I. Don't know what's your reaction to that system as a pilot who's used operated on and off it? It works I mean. A IT works well I'll be seems to work well. I haven't landed on the dots that often. Over the years generally I will get in before the show opens, and although the dots are there, I'm I'm. ABC is not asking me to land on them. generally there's been a few years at that's been. Landed on the DOTS, but they're easy to spot and and. My only concern. In the past has been when landing on the first dot of the runway the one I come to. Its. Knowing, that there's a bunch of traffic and knowing that the runway is constantly in use. My only concern is getting run over from behind

"oshkosh" Discussed on Technovation with Peter High (CIO, CTO, CDO, CXO Interviews)

"Yes so I did it in In a business right brand matters and and brand perception matters like just like in real business impact in in our function right brand matters so our ID function had a to dismantle perception in the minds of fifteen thousand people that who these guys are and what they do okay but we definitely wanted to Created Different Perception in the minds of everybody with home be interact internally and externally and and that's where we worked with the team that what can be the the better name here So so the fact is we did not do this in Kind of less. Change the name what we did as I one year Do we like before changing the name. Do we have a strategy? Outta BE EXECUTING AUTOMATED. The must play thing that we are different from from the past and once we realized and Wednesday validated without his callers then their perception. We are becoming different. And that's where we launched. The names auto name is probably About ten months old Enforced to twelve fourteen months. We kept the same name. So the fact is The band and perception have to go together and they have to go in in concert with the substance we deliver. So that's how we have changed and the band is definitely helping us in attracting the and the talent. Because it's his people feel like an interview. This is exciting place to join. Yeah that makes sense. I also wanted to ask you. I fascinated by this modernization pillar to your strategy. It's connected to innovation. As well and I certainly understand the rationale of modernization for then innovation. One eats the other one enables the other. A you you mentioned you have a three year roadmap for modernization and. I wonder if you could share some details of this especially given the the long storied history of your company It doesn't require a hundred years to build up a tremendous amount of technical debts or legacy. Us frankly skills like you processes that need to be modernized. And I'd be curious if you could share some details of the three roadmap as to how you think about the waves of chains. The changes that you'll enact so So definitely we are a Company like femme through Multiple Acquisitions fifteen years ago and And that brings technical dead and the fact that we are we serve different markets and And and different Business models like one of the segment. We have very highly customized with the with your car dealers. There are some places where we sell through major resellers. Those are the different models that introduces differentiation in applications and then perspective but what we did is we took the the processes right selling making and delivery Business Processes aftermarket basically we took those elements and we said what are the supporting What are the supporting Applications around these and and then looking tying it without a businesses strategy laid if business warrants to grow in one particular area I need to give that priority so that is one element. The second is in each of the business processes. We did Technical in Basically Functional Fitness Technical Fitness was done by our team and functional fitness. Was done but the the owner of that occasion a sponsor of application. So that's how we did application on infrastructure side I think it was a early straight Age based right We introduce a modernisation program. Right now we're doing desktop Transformation from any user experiences standpoint software defined networking voice over Ip and so there are multiple Extremes we are running for modernisation but again it ties back to What Business Processes? We are supporting. How do we prioritize where where the risk points are so this mystically And functional fitness made the key criteria and we are already aligned to the businesses strategy so funding for US became a lot more easy at airy interesting. You also talked about Some of the new areas advanced capabilities. centered around three technologies advanced analytics. Robotic process automation in digital manufacturing. And you also mentioned. This is where you were organizing In terms of building new skills. And I'm curious as you think about the introduction and immersion into these new technologies to that. Do you see this as retraining existing staff to be able to use and leverage these major technology trends that you see adding probably already adding tremendous value to oshkosh versus bringing outside talent as soon as probably some combination of the two. But I'd be interested in in how you think about that balance. Yeah I think what would be the underlying philosophy when the way we operate is if people are passionate and and they're willing to learn I think anything can be learned that's the underlying philosophy restart with When we think about talent so but we also did the level of complexity and The needed for the job. So for example robotic process automation is On a scale of technology complexity the way to have come is least complex to learn and what we saw is a four of my employees. They've all in tier. They had a background Software expedients software. The medics billions. And they said I want to learn and I want to focus on this area. We we invested in their training. We are basically Bringing external expertise for advanced training for them and not only advanced training experiential learning with them. And so we did not bring any external talent in robotic process automation when we look at digital manufacturing area I think there's a technology component in the manufacturing so we created hybrid team. We brought People who were in manufacturing within our business units and were passionate about it they bring a lot of manufacturing process expertise than we injected some some people from the Dick -nology expertise so that's the digital manufacturing idea but when it comes to a and analytics this is Especially did as science as a little complex Idiot there so for basic visualization in deporting the basically our training internal employees. We had some beer Tuning more but when we come to advance the analytics we hired did a scientists did architect and And they'd I- engineers and the Bible. There is a weekend of Lebar people but I speed matters. And that's where injecting both hybrid is very helpful. It's motivating for employees because they they see now that there's an opportunity and learn But at the same time it is a welcoming place for people coming with advance. Concerts makes sense. Could as you as you think about this sort of a as I was your talk about building advanced capabilities again. Another pillar to your strategy You know it's sort of the art of the possible for the rest of the organization. It's you and I really like the way you framed due to you talked about identifying those that would add value to the company. So it's not just sort of playing with any trend but but deciphering which of those have the most meaningful impact for the company. My words not yours but at least how I saw that translated and I wonder how you as you look for the next series of trends perhaps too to leverage. What's your process of staying current of doing that? Investigation of thinking about the art of the possible so The the first thing I think for let there are a couple of is we're doing and number one organization in not leaders are Are Now more sensitive than before that the base has changed and they need to continuously learn and and they are could have an individual development plan for our leader. So we're we have like each leader. Define each leader and Anna set employs defining. What idiots they need to get better. So that's the When there's a personal accountability then talks about We have a. We have a multiple external channels through which we learned technology on an individual basis based on their individual goals. But we also have the invite External external people here Who basically gives us a much broader strategic perspective and I give an example lake This montage self. We were in withing one expired to give us the I in manufacturing how to think about it so So those are the ways we are basically creating a learning organization but our filtration processes always based on is these are the Monica Technology What the maturity is an and we don process that breach of the business goal it may impact and if it is bleeding edge. We're not focusing right now. And if it doesn't fit with our any of the businesses strategy then we say okay. Put in the bucket list will revisit. I know pump one of the Three technologies that you're focusing on in terms of building advanced capabilities that third that you mentioned digital manufacturing Heck imagine that given the industry that you're in that is particularly poignant It is a centerpiece. Perhaps in some ways of of how you can impact and improve the organization. Can you talk a bit about How you see digital manufacturing being realize yeah so the the first of all the reason how how and why focused on just manufacturing was to number two drivers if you see as the US liberal force right this a lot of people retiring thirty forty years of expedience. The second is it is practically fully employed economy. So there's is a tremendous liberal shortage and but still our ambitions to grow our bigger. So how do we saw this problem? So what we said in the distant manufacturing before docking technology. What are they ideas? We want to impact and there were three areas received Rican improve the safety of our employees in the manufacturing blunt. The second we can improve the quality in a proactive manner through use of it and technologies and third we can impact the Labor deficiency so the technology which we are Implementing is Is still early. Stage like for example ribbon device with real time notification for safety so if If one of the employee is making wrong the posture that he he or she gets another and that could use a different safety question. We're working on network smart tools. We had smarter not accompanying and we adding more. But how do we network them? And take the data from them and and introduce a proactive element. That before defect happens at work. One workstation And before retirement we at that we're using visual undertakes using visual analytics for Observing defense so we have recreating image of what good looks like and and multiple shots are bad and and back and comparing through machine learning that what good looks like. We're also looking at in shop. Automated guided vehicles so for movement of Material and finally what? We're working on augmented reality. How do we capture the knowledge of so expediency in Ford's a way that the near employees bid on boarding becomes his ears and this is where we're using his mental reality how to capture their knowledge and become senior? So these are the some of the ways we are working and the good part here is. This is not what this technology function doing. This is such a strong partnership with our operational teams that we together are defining what the future looks like and how we need to work on it. Well I Open Carre. I thank you so much for a great conversation. It's really been very interesting to understand the impact that you and your team have made to Oshkosh in the in the two years. You've been enroll of the way in which you think about planning for the future. Some of the specifics of how you're actually sort of seizing that future in bringing it's reality. It's been a great conversation. Thank you thank you. Thanks for tuning in. Please join me next week. My guests will be. Bj soccer on chief information officer of TD Ameritrade..

A security guard investigates she knocks him out with a well-placed kick with the computer system. It comes to life. Everything goes a strange swirling pattern. Pops up on the monitors. It's obvious that the system is thinking the spy folks. The thicky computers out to stop her. It tries to lock her inside the building. The spy smashes through a window but not before she grabs a case and lungs off with inside that case a prototype for a new kind of machine that could change. Everything describing was a television commercial called apocalypse. It was promoting the newest video game console from Game Company. Sega and no ordinary console either. This revolutionary device was called the dreamcast in that apocalypse ad. What's inside the case? This is stealing. Is that very consul? Well then the dreamcast Box it sort of spins off of the back of the thief and lands in the street and the the the lid of this magic case kept the box plug. In the whole time POPs open camera's zooms into the dreamcast and into the window and goes down to the bottom where it appears that all the characters from all the Games are all gathered and there we have sonic down there and he he triumphantly says we got in the whole place rupp's and everybody's screaming. That's Brian and Pacino. The creative director of the apocalypse ad campaign and the Sauna keys referring to is sonic the Hedgehog Sega's famous game character in the nineties. Seca was one of the most recognized video game companies in the world. The by the end of that decade the competition was proving to be fierce so up at the House on dreamcast. It would be the company's Savior. The apocalypse ad was described as the most epic video game commercial ever created. But how else to show off the most advanced game console ever made so smart. You could almost say it really was thinking. Alas the dreamcast did not change world. It barely made a dent. It's considered by some to be the greatest console that never stood a chance. It was the last console Sega would build and had very nearly broke the company in our penultimate episode of the season a season all about hardware. That changed the course of development. We look at the short lived history of the Sega dreamcast yet. Despite the short shelf-life dreamcast is still considered by many to be one of if not the finest gaming consoles of all time and twenty years after its death it manages to live on in a very real way. I'm throwing at Barak and this command line. Heroes and the littoral podcast from hat like thinking computer in the apocalypse ad that whisper thanking became the company's new tagline for their new console. So the thought of having our our veal always whisper. It's thinking we thought that would be a really neat way to to sort of evolve that icon sake scream. Here was a console that got smarter as he played. At least. That was the marketing Pinch Console. That brought something new something big something live. Aleutian aries to the home video game market. A system built to serve the hardcore Gamer and inside the company. The thinking was that this console would make Sega. The biggest name in video gaming fish was going to change gaming. This was going to change the world so what happened to figure that out. We need to go back all the way back to level one throughout the early nineties. Sega had a reputation for making gains. There were super cool and more mature than what the competition offered particularly intendo. And it's princess saving plumbers. They built this reputation with a very successful console Sega Genesis. Sega decided they were going to be really cutting edge. And these kids who had had the Nintendo's that will now they're teenagers and they want they want real sports games with real teams. They want bloody fighting games like mortal Kombat which came later on and they wanted a more mature it. Your face sort of system. Alex Handy is the founder and director of the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment in Oakland. California he also works for Red Hat if you go back and look at ads from video game magazines in this period. They're kind of shocking their ads. Where there's like a bloody severed arm with gristle coming off of it and it says this is your best weapon against the Bad Guy Light. So Sega does really really well with this extreme in your face. Sort of successive genesis will sonic the hedgehog sort of impertinence as opposed to Mario's oshkosh b`Gosh overalls kind of happy theme. More than thirty million. People bought the SEGA GENESIS. A sixteen bit console that played games from cartridges. Gamers around the world loved it but over time sake struggles to grow as user base after Genesis. They introduced a thirty two bit. Sega Saturn more powerful than genesis. It display both two D and Basic Three D. Graphics but the Saturn Platform never really took off sales struggled. They managed to sell nine point. Two million consoles only a third of what the genesis sold another sticking point developers found a challenging to program games for Saturn's proprietary in house designed hardware. This was an issue. Sega made note of for the future. Add to that the launch of nintendo sixty four and then Sony's first entry into the market with the playstation and gaming was suddenly getting crowded and very competitive in one thousand nine hundred eight. Sega posted a loss of two hundred seventy million dollars. North American headquarters video game. Boss Bernie store announces that quote. The Saturn is not our future. He kills the console with that. Sega turns its focus to building the next generation of council level to building the dream. The Sega Saturn had hurt the company's brand and bottom line if sega was going to reclaim its market share and reputation. This next console needed to be powerful easy to co for and unlike anything else

Vic Syracuse Homebuilt Aircraft Council Chairman on His Building History

"So how'd you How did you first get involved with With ea where you involve with a chapter when you were younger where that come from. No I if I think back to my first touch on was I. I started building an RV for that was something I always wanted to do. Since I was a kid and I saw. I probably a teeny two or something. On the cover of a mechanics illustrated you can build bigger airplanes. And so I think it was twenty five. I started building rb. Four and Went and visited the local chapter. It was quite a bit different back then. Quite honestly it wasn't quite as welcoming to youth. It was more of an older gentleman's club and they seem to want to sit around and talk more than they did want to build and I wanted to build so one or two visits. I just stayed at home and spent that time building as opposed to a bill chapters. And I I'm at Air Venture was One Thousand Nine hundred ninety one when I came here after I'd already started building. The RB foreign got my first ride with Dick Van. Brunson in the four wow. That's that's a great interaction. What was it led you to the RV to begin with the first of many RV's actually you'll get a kick out of this so like every person trying to build their first airplane. You're on a budget and trying to figure things out and so I'm trying to look at some of the cheaper. Airplanes were to build and The one that was out there at the time I think was a monet model and I realized I didn't have welding skills so next thing I know we're sitting at the dinner table. One night and private pilot magazine came and there was an RV. Four on the cover doing a loop. And I made a comment at dinner to my wife that I really liked to build an airplane someday and her words were well. It'd be nice if you quit talking about it. So that's all I needed to hear. Order was in the mail the next day I love that woman to. That's that is terrific just out of curiosity the RV for you. GotTa ride in from from Dick. Was that the prototype. Yes it's the one in the museum right now. Yes that was the first survey you've ever had a ride and was the one that sets the display so you do have to point out how old I am music. There's a lot of airplanes are now in in thanks. I'm well Oh my goodness so How long did it take you to build that first? Rv for? And what was that experience? Like so I kind of didn't know what I was doing. I'd been building. He's gets for a good part of my life. You start on page one page ten. You've got something and Building like radios teams up to color. Tv's okay did you ever built the weather station the beneath get weather station. I didn't do that. Dad and I did that together. Only father something projects like that hands on that we did. That was a lot of fun. Yeah I missiles heath kit days me to have my silla scope and once in a while but that's just when you look like a bond villain or something so Well BACK TO VIG. You asked me about trying to remember the question. Sorry the question is what was the how long it took out the RV here. I am this twenty five year old kid and again it was an old guys club and I I've always been one. Once you start you keep going and you get it done and So I kept calling pestering fan. Hey Winston xe kit coming so I started out as serial number. Two thirty nine ended up being the twelfth. One finished vowed I think it was about twenty two months later. Twenty four months later maybe was the first RV for Sun and fun and the first one east of the Mississippi rivers a lot of fun. What do you remember about that? First Flight? The first airplane you built. It was reminds me of here a little bit in that. It was on a New Year's Eve in Cleveland. Ohio and it was minus ten degrees. So we all know what kind of performance you are visa but when you're in an RV four with only. I think I had ten gallons of fuel in it and it was minus ten. You can imagine how that thing Klein about ten thousand minutes. You're not supposed to need oxygen during phase one remember very hilarious so we have a VHS tape. Tom You probably look that up in the library but as a kid okay. So it's funny here. It is it's minus ten degrees outside and I land in the family's all around and I'm I'm I'm on cloud nine. I'm so excited and everything and in video you can see everybody else. Kind of standing around freezing for my wife finding says getting we go inside Your Square John. Ten feet tall Having just mastered this role as test pilot. What did you fly to get ready to to get comfortable in the RV farm you had the right and the other RV but did you. Was there. Another airplane you flew to get deal skills Sharp and all that sort of thing was a lot of ratings at that time including I was doing a tail wheel instruction outer let As a good practice there was a friend on the field and he had a decathlon so that very morning I went up I with him and did three takeoff and landings just to make cert- draining back then right which is something. We're trying to change quite a bit today and no transition team and NO SECOND PILOT ADDITIONAL PILOT PROGRAM. No Load No. Ea Flight Test Manual. But but they had electricity and things. Tom I mean it wasn't it wasn't that long ago is our guest. Okay civic after the after the four. What did you go onto to build? So when I had the four for probably I think three years or so and Basically had a four place family so it got to be not a whole lot of fun having this to place airplane and about that time. Prescott pusher came into being and they came to us with a lot of splash and unfortunately I got caught up in that real splash and again I was the first one to actually finish the Prescott pusher and did manage to fly. Here Dash Gosh The first year we finished it but You know a number. A number of other people behind me Came to demise in that aircraft it was not represented very well and so we realized at that time the best thing to do for four place airplane was probably a rant or have partners and So built another place airplane Kit Fox and Most of the time you're flying by yourself anyway or with one other family member and then we We had partners in one. Eighty two. And then bonanza so that filled the four-place niece for awhile until I was could convince Dick van grunts into doing RV ten which took about ten to twelve years and so you're saying that That the RV ten exists is to shut you up. We'll tell you this alone. I came to air venture. I think it was nineteen ninety-six. After pestering van every year for however many years my wife and I were probably twenty feet from his booth and he sees us coming up and he points right at us and says all right. I'm going to do one. Excellent and you also I mean obviously in addition to the aircraft. A you've built you've you've test flown. Many aircraft done pre buys them in the aircraft also. Da are as well does this represent a free FAA signing off aircraft But one in particular that of that we all have some connection with is the one week wonder the RV twelve iso we built an adventure In in two thousand eighteen. You did the first flight on that I did. That was fun so I'm always have an emotional connection to that aircraft. Matter of fact at lunch I was just explaining that to a couple of your new hires. Here go take me take advantage of flying club you have here and then rb twelve with special. I was just flying in on Sunday. Good for you good for you. John Egan and I you're part of the the West Coast tour of the aircraft couple months ago so we got the flight from From Phoenix All the way back to Oshkosh need. That's right you picked up. After David and Serena dropped it off so that was that was terrific thing getting that airplane out there and show you off two chapters and that was literally the Monday after adventure right. It was correct. It was done on Sunday. Flown on Monday. Yes yes and now we flew Monday. Evening is a postcard

Vic Syracuse Homebuilt Aircraft Council Chairman discusses the 2020 EAA/FAA Recreational Aviation Summit

"Don't you tell me a little bit more about What goes on in the summit victim. Tell us about what? Your role is so One I'm just honored to be there. A nice time. Didn't accused me of making the meeting any longer than it needed to be so. Thanks Tom. Absolutely the exciting thing is that I see over past three or four years this absolute willingness for the FAA to listen to the EA leadership to him on on very important things that are affecting our membership things right down to operating limitations for amateur built airplanes at top of mind for our members out there these days and actually work with the people that Right those up and allow us to do input and make changes. It does seem to me to be to be powerful and is it. Would you both say it's unusual That that we're we're sort of able to to get the FAA to come to us and sit down and have these These face to face meetings. It seems like when you consider a typical Something more akin to a lobbying scenario. Think while you go to Washington and the Obama the doors till somebody listens but they come here and sit down. Sit Down with us for two three days and the fact that they come here when it's eight degrees outside on purpose so that they can so that there are other bosses. Can't say that they're on some kind of junket you know to Vegas or something but But how I think One of one of the strengths. Ca Has the other alphabet organizations. Do a ton of of really great work and they're in DC Obviously base there on a regular basis and and we do have representation there ourselves with Doug McNair But one of a uniqueness that is our strength that he a is that we're not in DC. Were here in Oshkosh. Which means that when we want to have one of these kind of touch points. They come onto our turf meetings. It really is kind of an event And it's done in kind of this. This concentrated way of day and a half meeting where they hop on flights and come into To Wisconsin in February. We put together a full day. And a half agenda with you. Know with briefing papers in a in a fully. We work on this for months in advance. Getting getting all this ready and then we also have all of the All of the the leads in the same room so it doesn't matter if we're talking about airport policy or for talking about flight safety or for talking about Operating limitations for amateur built aircraft. Everybody whether they have a hand in it or not is around. The table offering their views on it. And particularly for the interdisciplinary topics. You know things like mosaic giant rulemaking project. It's great to you. Know not necessarily be in the office of one particular department but have those folks come to us and in all bear on the conference. Table Now vic. We're looking BACK SUMMIT AS WE'RE RECORDING. His has just concluded correct. We've just wrapped up Vick. Was there you mentioned operating limitations? Were were there any other particular. Highlights this at this year for you. Yeah the NEAT thing about the last day and a half as Tom said we've got the real people here who can actually listen and then say yeah. We can change that as opposed to thank you for your input. We're GONNA go back and see what can be done and that ranged everywhere from talking about grass field operations which was kind of a minor knit all the way up to future policies. That may be coming out in the next four or five years at are actually going to change you know. Have a real good impact. I think very positively on amateur built aviation so it's everything from fixing things to policy making out in the future and we've got the leadership of both sides in the room a green on. What's going to happen? That really is it really is terrific and I You know when you go back through our magazine Archives Or you think back I personally think about conversations with Paul Right when I started here. when he founded the organization That was that was a core philosophy from the beginning is is you know. We're not gonNA just sit here and fold our arms and you know and grouse about the bureaucrats in Oklahoma City. You know we're going to figure out how to work with them and how to educate them And you know I certainly. We don't get every single thing we want but but we've had some. We've had some enjoyable successes over the years and I think I think members should be proud of the strong working relationship that we have with the FAA. Yea I I I would add just a little bit to that. How and you're dead on. I call it. I've actually When I speak to the Holmdale Council and even family members and fellow pilots when I go back the collaborative atmosphere. Yeah that is in this room and all the meetings that I've had the honor of participation with is totally different than most pilots perception of the FAA chur. I mean they are there to actually they have the same objective that we have in mind in that to Promote aviation not figure out a way to stifle it and there aren't any US in they conversations in in this room this meeting ever the first time I was there. It was amazing to me and it just keeps repeating year after year and actually we do it twice a year and they always take things back and act upon them and come back and tell us why they can't as you know We do. Have we do report to a congress and but most of the time in jail we we can fix this or we can change. That is very very collaborative. This is our fourteenth winter summit this year. So you know There every year we get high level executives. I mean literally somebody who reports to somebody who reports to the FAA administrator You know that's that's the level of executives that were getting at these meetings. I mean these are people who don't just have oversight of General Aviation. They have oversight of Commercial Aviation which is obviously a Not The not the most comfortable assignment right now at the seventy seven Max issues going on in other things And they take the time to come to Oshkosh again in February. When it's eight because they WANNA come here come here. They want to To do positive things for general aviation and hear what the stakeholders have to say So I think it's As as my boss Sean says always says it's ours to lose you know we. We have to continually Present a productive agenda for them But we are of A. We're just very humbled by the By by the the willingness of these guys to to work with. Us So closely. It really is. That really is something remarkable and I it it does appear to be pretty Pretty Unique

"I'm how Brian I'm senior editor here at. EA and Oshkosh Wisconsin. And and I'm one of the hosts of the green dot and sitting here with me on the left it is I'm one of the other host. I'm Chris Henry the EA Aviation Museum Programs Coordinator and somebody snuck snuck into the room with us today. Chrissy sitting across the table and she'd tell us about them absolutely just for the record When he showed up it literally dropped twenty degrees here? So you're about the a cold wave degrees Fahrenheit that's true I think either a thousand or sixty degrees centigrade degrees. Yeah well anybody. WHO's a fan of the TV show? Ice Pilots Will be familiar with Scott Blue. Scott the thank you for joining us today. Thanks for having me Chris. Good Morning. Well thanks for coming and We're GONNA IF ANYBODY WHO's listening to this It'll be after the time so you have missed it but Scott is actually here to take part in the speaker series. Here at the museum happens every third Thursday the month shameless plug there but But Luckily we've recorded. Where did this podcast? So if you could make it you'll have something to listen to and hear about your adventure down here and we should be doing a video of the speaker series as well. That's yes I usually goes up within two or three three weeks or so of the event so absolutely evidence. Great years but You know being being a foreigner her as you are the are. US laws must have might charming to you. We didn't get pulled over on the draft Milwaukee. It was fun. They let me into the country so I'm already winning. Well that's that's good questions. Will they let you out Kennedy not want me back scanning passports sports these days. I'm in trouble. We're always looking for good people. Welcome all right Scott. Well let's let's do. We always liked to do on the show. Let's go back back to the beginning. We were having great conversations right before. Went on about About some of the movies so I say back to the beginning. Well I the earth cool cool dinosaurs game not quite that far back Mike Myers. I'm sorry thank you fellow Canadian eighty at my life. Let's go back to a little bit closer to your beginning. How did you first get into flying? Were you a kid interested in aviation was something year round at all. I always liked airplanes when I was younger and You know even going back when I was a kid. We used to go down to Florida every year and we had a condo down there and I remember one year getting into radio controlled airplanes and magazine Z.. My mom bought forming. We weren't we could see in the store and then it was in a holding pattern until we actually started the drive entertainment for the kids as we go down a little older I get it you know. I can't see the magazine and it'll wait. And then we started driving down and funny enough. I still have this. Old Radio Controlled Model Airplane magazine and on the cover. It is a seal to fifteen. Oh there was an article the guy that made one going in and out of the water One but then the actual picture of it was there and it sort of you know foreshadowed several decades later actually got into that it you know in my career but yeah I always liked airplanes and cars and anything with an engine and You Know I. I went to university after high school. I finished my degree and Happy to say it would be in geography a fee. But it wasn't really leading me into anything so our jingle researching Yo hey I can still become pilots too late as a mid twenties and You know give. The military shot didn't work out because a little tall but Yeah just started. Chipping away at the flight school with North of Toronto. So you mentioned you mentioning just too tall. Aw to fly in the military. So you're seven yet is that right and That still seems sort of I guess I get it but it so seems strange to me like this in the you know whether that was the late twentieth or early twenty first century. That something like that that you know. You're you're smart. You're obviously good pilot. Well it all all these other qualifications. But I'm sorry just physically don't fit in the cockpit. How did it seems amazing to me that we can't well to me? Is that it it because of the L. Red tape in the way that the hiring process goes took several months for that to be established whereas on the very first day I was asking too tall and they'd be like I'm not sure. How is your eyesight and Mike Take my told to do this job? And at every step in the process I kept asking and basically I don't know you know down the line and by the time I got after all the simulator checks in the background checks and the two hour interview where they ask you about some pretty intense stuff being you know you're signing up for the military past all that everything was okay and then I I went from full medical and all your tallet everything else on. Yeah and like we're talking top to bottom everything like x rays. I checked you name it and at the end of it a set down the flight surgeon and he's okay. Well you're too tall. What else is wrong with you? Nothing nothing else is wrong with you. Did you get here. And I'm like nobody nobody would give me a no and so oh I just. He's like okay. Well tell you come back next week and we'll measure you again. What's going to happen that week? I thought they were just GonNa put me in an F.. Eighteen and object back to me over northern Alberta compress lose an inch and the way to go. I didn't happened. showed up the next week. And they it was interesting because they had to hide expert. And and they plotted me out and make really measured everything. And they had a chart green yellow red but the different machines in the Canadian military and read it was no go on that was for helicopters and the F. Eighteen of just wasn't gonNA happen yellow sort of like Oh might work in you know some of the other training planes and some smaller machines but then green. It was wide open for two hooks and the C. Seventeen and and We call them the Aurora. CB One forty rowers but P. threes. And I was like cool. I'll fly that stuff. That sounds great and they said well No. Thank you but if you're not able to do everything everything does work for us so actually coming out. Wow what's it's amazing to me because if you talk to people over the years who have been undetermined to you know to get in the military military do flying and things like that you hear stories of people as you know they were told no upfront and well then they then they fought it or going going back far enough. It's like well you can't do it because of your is well you know. The doctor leaves the room. They memorize the eye chart and get into but those people usually sort of told no at every step but I hate to to indulge the stereotype but maybe maybe this was uniquely Canadian. Because you're not find anybody to actually say they just said you're still quite handsome. I'm afraid it's the it's the height it's really you know it's the rest of us are too short. Sorry it's not you it's us we're GONNA have to the whole program to fit people like you. Subways cars cars are going to make it work. You can pick a little while. Oh that's fascinating to me though you know it it it it it is what it is you. There's nothing I can do about that and it's been some effort to deal with my tire. Career couldn't find fleiss certain airplanes at Buffalo was to offer. DC3's couldn't fly one fifty. Two's for the training. I think I did but hey I'm here now. Gainfully employed as a pilot and I mean it is interesting applying a Dornier two to eight in the winter right now my knees are pretty much chance. Yeah crossings from the Left are interesting to make it work. Well that's something else that I find it especially interesting though. Is that You know if you look at you look on the career that you've you've had so far and you're still young Guy But you flown some amazing things have had these incredible experiences. And who knows how that would've How the career would have played out? Had you gone into into the Canadian Forces and and gone a completely different direction. I'm sorry I would've still been rewarding but but Maybe you would have had a very different in. Dare I say less fulfilling career to this. It's it's tough to say you know it really in a life gives us these past and you go down one and another one disappears and you can think of what all the hypothetical ways go. I mean maybe you know it could have been flying seventeen all over the world you know on CNN. In that regard. I mean the chopper thing was out in. The fighter jets roared. But you know you you never know and you know I'm happy with the path that's ended up and You know wants the one door closed. It's like okay. Well you know time for next one keep moving so but yeah it would have been would have been interesting I think but hey I'm happy how it worked out and you know lots of adventures up north and say the least a few minutes ago. You mentioned your flight training that you're too tall for the for the system of fifty two Key Tell us about your fight training. What did you train in and out of that I'll go sure absolutely I went to flight school. North of Toronto. Oh called Toronto Airways Airport based Button Ville airport which was funded out about a couple of times. Yeah Okay we'll enjoy it because they keep saying it's GonNa Clo that's GonNa close and it's been bought by developers and it's still open. It's just keep delaying. It will eventually close. I'm sure which is yeah. Disappointing community not happy about that in Canada but So I went up there. I started chipping away at it and funding my first and strike flight instructors later heather. And she's about five foot wonder five two so she's putting a phonebook behind her back in the seventy two and crank in the seat forward and up. Meanwhile I'm going down back and trying to kick a hole in the side for some with the Sunroof uh-huh for the but so is Yeah lots of one. Seventy two was the primary playing a trained on and then a twin engined stuff was on a piper seminal and I valley parked in Toronto. Pay For it all the whole time and So that was there are some other vehicles getting in and out of small spaces so adapted with that and Took took took a couple of years. I was more Working to pay for it all and then when I was done the training of wasn't any debt which is rare. You know these days of flight training because it is very expensive Had A lot of fun with that and You know just flew over mostly Ontario a little bit into Quebec and yeah some great great instructors at a wonderful time checked off all the boxes and then it was resume ta I am.

Checklist // Approach Plate Best Practices

"Leaders will come back to the finer points and good morning it is seven thirty. AM here in San Francisco on a rainy Sunday morning. I have a cup of coffee. You got my microphones. You're here with me and we are GonNa talk about spatial disorientation and a little bit about the recent video. I published on power on stalls But I wanted to start with spatial disorientation. 'cause I got this podcast question from Gary and Gary Says Jason. I've heard you mentioned it multiple times in both the podcast and on the Youtube Channel to hold your checklist or approach plate up to the instrument panel. But what if your checklist or approach plate is in four flight and it's on an ipad mounted to your yoke. I understand I could print out on my checklists but what about the approach plates etc.. I truly enjoy the information. Please keep up the good work. I'm awesome Gary. Thank you for that question and it is a great conversation because we're living in a time of transition right now. I know this sounds funny but you might have heard me compare the period. We're living in now to that of the Titanic Manic Right. I mean we've got this new technology But we don't really know where the proverbial icebergs are. We don't really you know it's brave new world. We're doing things we could never do before. So one of those things is integrating digital tools into the cockpit. And let's just start by talking about why I want people to hold hold the checklists and approach plates up It's really multiple reasons. You know when you're via far pilot and you're on the ground and you're in a busy airport environment or even cruising along trying to maintain a sight picture for example the hold altitude. It's wise to pick things up and keep your eyes into the field of view. Where you you need to be looking right so not at the instrument panel? If you're via far you hold your checklists up to the window so you can keep your eyes looking out the window while you read the list your is just Kinda Dart right back and forth on instruments there's an additional component here. There's the component of spatial disorientation. Now you've probably also heard me say that the FAA takes a spatial disorientation simulator. Around to shows like Oshkosh's I think Sunan Fund so if you ever have a chance to use that simulator. It's a profound experience right right. I mean it's a spinning box spinning central y axis as you stand there on the outside. You can see this thing spinning but once you get inside. You don't really know it spinning all that Motion Ocean is invisible to you. They're not a parent and you're in a flight simulator. You know you're inside this spinning box flight simulator. And you're doing things that are pretty much normal you turn to this heading turned to that heading climbed. Descend at some point. The voice in your ear tells you to drop your Pencil and point your head down ninety degrees that is look at your feet to pick up the pencil and when you do that motion with your head in the ninety degrees from looking forward to looking straight down. It's unbelievable it's like someone picked up your feet and three. Are you backwards spinning through the air. It is completely disorienting. And this is what we're trying to avoid an instrument flying anybody that's ever been in in the clouds and experienced spatial disorientation. Knows just how uncomfortable that can be. Uncomfortable is not the right word. I was GONNA say scary. It's really you know you're trying to control this airplane in the Cosby. You're feeling Dizzy Wright. And then you're you start to feel the stress of holy cow it if I can't control this thing. This is a life threatening exercise. I'm engaged in here right On so you don't want to go down that road. You WanNa avoid that as much as possible so when you're in the clouds we all just to review we have fluid in our inner ears. Here's rate we've got little semicircular. Canals that help us detect pitch forward or role laughter around a vertical Axis. And the more you move your head had the more likely you are to move the fluid in your inner ear and experienced spatial disorientation. So when you're in the clouds you should typically weekly try to limit your head movement and move your eyes In you know and as we've always done you pick up your checklists and hold them right up to the instrument panel or your applaud PLO approach plates right up to the instrument panel for two reasons. One is that first reason just like via fire you want. Your is moving quickly back and forth between the data. You're trying to took hold old and the information you're trying to read but now also this new component of avoiding spatial disorientation or eight. So that's the lesson that's the way we've always taught it and like you know Gary you're saying here what we're starting to see this. Little proverbial iceberg. Moving into our way is that everyone is now attaching these this giant ipads to their knee boards or to their yolk or maybe better up somewhere on the window but still blocking the window So how do we deal with this. You know and It's a real thing you know it's in. It's precisely due to the technology. It's not a major difference you know but it's much easier to pick up a small paper checklist West than it is to pick up a giant ipad attached to your lap. So people put their head down. I need agrees. They do exactly what we've always coached them not to do you know. So how do we deal with that. And that's your question. I recommend with four flight. That you've got to devices period for flight allows you to have to devices for your log in And you also need a backup device right so I don't believe everyone is backing themselves up fully with paper. Maybe some people are but not everybody so I recommend. Do you have one IPAD. That's fixed in position. Maybe on your yoke or even on your lap I suppose And that is you're low altitude en route chart that is is your chart supplement. That has all the extra stuff you get with four flight. That is your imagery. That's everything you need to access and then in your hand something you're able to the pickup is your phone or an IPAD mini. I use an IPAD mini. That's on a little clipboard. So I can literally just stick my finger between the IPAD the clipboard and Sorta hold my hand up. And it's kind of attached to my finger on it certainly light enough to to use for approach plates and checklists. So my advice to you gary is to dedicate your your devices to different purposes and run to like run for flight onto devices. And if you have it on your yoke or you have to put it on in your lap stay conscious of the intention here and just try to move. Your eyes. Don't move no don't make large head movements in certainly not looking down ninety degrees degrees. If you ever have a chance to ride the Giro I think is what the FAA calls it And that is their spatial orientation simulator. Definitely do it. It will change the the way you think about this stuff and help you take it seriously. Thanks for that awesome question here

Interview with Taylor Stevenson

"We're really happy to have all the way from Texas Taylor Stevenson joining us. Who actually flies with the with the Torah Act? So thank you for coming up in being with us today. Yeah absolutely the scared look is also what I have in the cockpit as well same holds true for all for all of US above average pilots. which is everybody coming in to landing? Cleef so Taylor before we sort of dive into what you do these days With Torah and all that all that cool stuff I I always love to go back to go back to the beginning and and find out how what was it about aviation how did you. How did you get involved? Do you remember the first thing you loved aviation where your model. I don't actually remember the first thing about aviation because it's just always been in the family So I was blessed to have grown up with my Dad Gordon Stevenson who I guess when I was born he used to scuba dive and ski and all that stuff and he's like yeah. I can't really do that with a little kid. What can I do? And so He'd always wanted to fly. My grandfather father was a flight engineer on B. Twenty four's in the Pacific with a three eightieth bomb group and so he had always grown up with my grandfather and my great uncle was a tail. Gunner and B twenty. Five's is always telling stories of aviation and so. He always wanted to do that. Well I guess I kind of kickstarted it So he was in nineteen thousand nine he was at the Addison. Texas airshow. You and there were two pieces For Sale so dad went up and you know what looks cooler not six sitting out there and it was kind of a fresh paint job Boban and he walks up and Calls one of his good friends at the time is basically my uncle Ray Kinney who had his pilot's license and said Hey ray let's by six and Ray is kind of what I was saying. Okay whatever whatever you call me when you need the money you know didn't never thought it was happened. We'll dad I bought the t six call ray up in two weeks later. Dad's signed up for flying lessons. So he kind of jumped headfirst into the thing Getting a pilot maker so So I did grow up just grew up in the backseat of T. Six six years old. I remember Freedom Flight Ninety five where we took one hundred and twenty aircraft from Long Beach California new to New York City I think we did six or seven and airshows along the way and so there's no greater childhood and ask for greater childhood than get into go and and and an experienced that and the neat thing is I'm excited to share it with my kids but it's it's got a a bittersweet day because I'm going to be one of the last generation that actually got to interact with the people that flew these in combat that built them Back in Korea World War Two and before so I'm I'm really blessed to have been able to grow up with aviation that's excellent so tell us a little bit about what your flight training. When did you start learning to fly? You've been around you. He's six which is fantastic. I'd like to fly by a t six. I broke it down both Cadillac that but really dad always joked that I was I could fly. IOF are when I was probably eight years old because I couldn't see over the canopy rail and he'd say oh I need to change maps. Hold the instrument. I'd sit there and look at you know artificial horizon and just kind of keep it going. We've got that exact same joke in my family. That was really. Yeah so so ray. Kenny also had a nineteen forty-six Piper j three cub with a sixty five horse engine in no electrical. Oh system about as good as it gets. And so when I was fifteen. He started doing kind of the formal Flight Training with me and a good family friend. Aubrey hair. Who flew flew? Basically everything that a stable for Cavanaugh flight museum and Blue Ticks and stuff. I was Aubrey's last student. We like to. He's he he kind of wears. He says he wears a badge of honor. I think I scared him so bad. He didn't want to know but now it was When I was fifteen Fly Piper cub out of our country. North Dallas and on my sixteenth birthday Solo. The cub then drove from the airport after getting student licensed to the DMV. To get my driver. So I always like to say I I could legally fly before I could drive So the cub was awesome to build. Time in there's nothing neater than going cross country driest eighteen wheelers or passing. ESPN everywhere you stop to fill up hand proper chocolate and and go so But after that we I'd always knew just grown up. WanNa get into warbirds and you can't just go you could but you know there's GonNa be a logical step between a cub and the t six and then beyond and so. I've always loved the Stinson. L Five and to me the l four was gonna you know there's some grasshopper aficionados. I was out there prior to say but the L. A. Piper cub with more glassy was is an existing design that was translated into military service. Same thing with the L.. Three same thing with the L.. To the twelve or or champ and the L. One and the l five were designed from from the ground up as a military machine. It was a ward Set up sixty five horse. We've got a hundred and ninety horsepower. Got flapping flaps drooping ailerons. It was cool so I remember being twelve years old and Eleven or twelve in. Sam Taber who's always up here at Oshkosh with his L.. Five walked right up to him about the best guy I on the planet walked. Start talking and sometimes you get some people aviation that When somebody young walks up up to him you know they don't necessarily discount him but it's kind of like okay? He's asking some questions. I would just boom in. Sam is one of those great individuals that He latched on told told me all the information ever wanted to know about the l five and just encourage he and Jim Gray Dunkin Cameron some of these others. That were in that group just really took me under their wing and so eventually found found project and began restoration. That was my my first foray into warbirds myself. All that's very cool. Yeah Sam's a good friend to a bunch bunch of the well to to the organization General He's our boss Jim. Bush publications is one of his best buddies. And Jim has an l five live. Oh that's very cool and Taylor you. I mean you're L five. Restoration is is gorgeous. I mean thank you. That was one of the first ones I know says that all the gas. Yes I do But no seriously you're aircraft is impressive. Yeah I appreciate it. It was we're lucky enough to find a really solid project from Duncan Cameron out. He was in Tennessee at that point. And so I went out there and And took a look at it and you know dad and and I we. I grew up working on cars and airplanes. A little bit with dad and Really we had been looking for an L. Five That was kind of plug and play a but it's kind of like anything for a parent. I don't have kids but I'm sure one day I'll realize it was like none of them. Were kind of up to his standards. One of the most safe. You know you WANNA make sure it was gone through and all that stuff and we finally determined and we started out with saying. We're not GONNA have project. Well that seemed to be the the only way we were going to get a product that we that we really liked at at that market at that point So I went over. I heard about this Guy Just kind of in between Dallas Fort Worth Name Lonnie Parcel Funny Awesome Guy One of my best friends so I flew the cup over there and he is restored shoot. Probably fifteen l five's over the year And started talking with him. And we ended up I said hey you know if I get this you know the two of us going to start working on it and You know basically be my mentor and in and and teach me how to do this and and so when I got the five and from that point I think it was about sixteen months. We had flying airplane so is it was It was pretty much. My twos two summers during high school. So seventeen eighteen nineteen and those two summers. That was my job. Drove drove forty minutes each way drive out to propwash. Were Little Airport flying community and worked with him and it was the most amazing and it was the best experience. It's because you know whether it's a l. five or cub or TC want or pilots. Or whatever the principles you learn rebuilding a cub They get more complicated. But you know carburetors carburetor internal combustion engine to all internal combustion engine so it was a great learning experience experience in being able to I guess quickly trouble. Shoot whatever something was going on because you've seen it you put it together so it was just an amazing experience. Yeah we come up in his Oshkosh two thousand nine and We're honored to receive the best Elbert so it was great

China Indicates Trade War Talks With The U.S. Are Improving

"President trump went on twitter yesterday to note a record high in the stock market. A new record the president wrote enjoy exclamation point the market rose after reports reports that the US and China had had agreed to rollback some tariffs between the two countries. Now an important thing to note is those reports came from China's Commerce Ministry. There has been no official announcement on this yet from US negotiators but White House. Press Secretary. Stephanie Grisham told Fox News that negotiations are moving in the right direction and I can not get ahead of talks with China but we are very very optimistic that we will reach a deal soon and and hopefully have some good news to report or that was White House Secretary White House press secretary. Stephanie Grisham we now have a different White House official trade advisor Peter Navarro on the line. Good Morning Mister. Naral thing our you today very well. Thanks thanks so China came out and said there is phase one of a deal we're going to agree to lift some tariffs on each other the US and China the US has not confirmed that yet. Can you confirm. Is there a deal as their phase. One deal I can confirm that. There is no agreement to remove any of the existing terror as a condition of signing interface. One deal and the only person who really can make that decision is President Donald. J trump If you don't hear it from Bowser sure Robert Lighthizer trade representative than It's not a real and if you don't hear from President trump that did come right out of the the administrative propaganda as it were. In China. was widely misreported. The products. Talk about that. If there's no deal to roll back tariffs wise China in a saying there. Is You referenced propaganda. What do you think is going on here? Well some companies joking me yesterday as the real negotiations which. I don't really start until you have a handshake shit. Deal is worth what we had October Basically they're they're trying to renegotiate or retrieve the October deal I don't fault all Kim for that's kind of what they do but the reality is What is on the table is there's terrorists coming in December December fifteenth We would would be willing. I think again. It's up to the president to postpone those terrorists realize but let's remember December fifteen th one but not roll back any existing terrorists. That's the fine distinction here but the terrorists are really necessary defense against China's economic aggression against the United States. They are also the only insurance policy. We have China will come to the negotiating table embark faith and if you give away any of the existing terrorists run the very real. Don't risk that you'll never get to phase two or three and I. I think your listeners need down or stand that there's there's seven things we're trying to get done and the phase one only gets about two of them done I WanNa ask you about the The possibility that the US would back off on the tariffs that are scheduled for December fifteenth. Now that's one hundred hundred sixty billion dollars of tariffs on Chinese products mostly on consumer electronics. You're saying maybe the US would would would not do that. Would not tariffs on those products. Why why is that? Well we have terrorists on Existing products The the additional channel terrorists That we would be put in place are would be a goodwill gesture to get us to phase two or three again the idea would be to To maybe wait a little while but I you know not my place here negotiate in public. which is what the Chinese were doing yesterday? I think what's important to the American people understand is is is that China is actively engage economic regression. They commit what I call the seven deadly sins It's force technology. Don't have time for all seven. I'm so sorry although I do throw the American people understand. We are getting hammered by China and I think they do they really broad support from American people on President you in trump's tough stand on China bipartisan support on Capitol Hill. That's it is. There is a wrinkle here. Though for the president we have had in this country. Three straight months of manufacturing contraction that is unusual we've had job losses in manufacturing in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. These are states that the president wants to win manufacturers openly. Blame the trade war. The president must have people telling him. It's time to move on this right. I would assume don't dispute all of what you're saying. They're basically what I'm saying is in the numbers just Yes hidden despite the evidence Obama abiding years they lost two hundred thousand manufacture just ask. You aren't the numbers we've added five hundred thousand in manufacturing jobs. The unemployment rate is the lowest sentenced Ben since man walked on the moon wages rising life. Life's good for America's better than than it was during the previous administration. I myself when you work. Every single day. Trying to create good manufacturing coaching jobs for the real mobility this country people who work for their hands president trump's doing a great job in that and I can take through the baronet Wisconsin Oshkosh. It was constantly Lima Ohio York Pennsylvania. Greenville South Carolina. I'll take you there. We go on a tour. I'll show you all the good manufacturing jobs Mr Navarro top losses. Your those are still occurring. Wait how straight advisor. Nabil thank you so much for taking the time we really appreciate it.

3 Aviator Guests Who Flew The F117

"Today we have not one two three we Aviators who flew the F.. One seventeen so with us today. We have colonel at Whitley. We have colonel. Ralph Goetchel and colonel. Ganja Gentlemen thank all of you for being here. We also have their wives with us here. They were able to join us so Just want to thank the six of you for making the trip up to to Oshkosh Wisconsin. Shearson time on this pleasure absolutely so and also they'll be joining us tonight for. EA Speaker series which For those are you listening. It's too late for you but make sure you missed a good one guy you know especially that one part but do check our local to the oshkosh area. Ever want to make a trip sometime. When it's not air venture be sure to check our social media on our website and our online newsletter for for future dates for this for the series so with that of course I guess I'll I'll kick it over to you to kind of ask what we usually ask for the introductory questions for our I guess one of my favorite questions ask because everybody has a story What I made you WanNa fly well for me? As a child growing up I was the child of a World War Two veteran. My Dad worked for a company in which there was is a retired Military Aviator who was the president and CEO of textile the organization being from the South and he was a big collector of military aircraft. And he he shared this collection with the people who work for his organization and so we as kids. We just climb all over a variety of military aircraft and been a little bit older than these other guys I Remember Korea Had Our tendency to visit the local airport just watching it but what the moment that really struck me was when I had my first Ryder t thirty. The three in the backseat. My time is that My choices were go through. ROTC in college or not go to college and be a grunt in the United States are going to be at Phnom and frankly when I went to field training between my sophomore junior year and had that first orientated applied on ever get get visit. Myrtle Beach Airforce Base took off on their forget we broke ground on a cloudy sky and that contrast to the ocean and the white sand. And I said Gosh. Gosh this is what I WANNA do. That was that moment that really struck out for me and I had a great again in front seat and that was that was a magic moment for me. That's awesome How about you Colonel Jill? We're like to point to say that my father who was in the military inspired mutation Taeb restrained to be AAA battery commander so that didn't feel bad but my mother was a navy wave during World War Two and it was a linked trainer operator and she brought with her the navy how to fly manuals and all the things that I just devoured in junior high and high school. I lived on a ranch in central Florida that was in the running line for the navy. Pine Castle air to ground range or GonNa rage and so I could be down there shoveling horse apples or whatever it is that at a ranch boy does it'd be threes and fours and four eight. Five eight vigilantes roaring overhead on looking up and Goya looks like a lot more fun than down here and I did a little investigation allegation and found out that the navy guys running aircraft carrier. And there's no women on carrier knows no beer on the carrier and that that launched launched me on a on a career near fourth. Although my dad wasn't an aviator was on the Coast Guard World War Two timeframe when I was young very young he took me to an EA gathering back when it was in Rockford. And I got my first flight in a gypsy. Moth Open Air. I don't remember eight or nine years old in it's kind of set a spark. My father was always aviation suzy's and then as I was getting into high school I just thought the flight fighters be like the greatest job in the world early in high school. Had I had a cousin that went to the Air Force Academy and I got to thinking I was also the oldest of seven children in the finances of going to college made made a huge difference if the government was sending me to college and I got a chance to be a pilot. Boy that'd be cool owes able to get into the Air Force Academy train their want to go to pilot training and it was just kind of always been my goal to head in that direction. I didn't necessarily have specific specific path but worked out and there. We have how that's awesome. That's really cool. You have an EA if you're early flight and that's pretty wild. It's grown a bit Rockford. We noticed it so we just heard your first experience in an airplane What about the what? What did you was the first plane? Overflowing well following pilot training. No now you just mean like as a kid but as I said in the t thirty three that's an awesome. I fly has an awesome and of course it there in that timeframe There was a program in. ROTC for juniors and sophomores to Get their pilot. License called the flight instruction program and I went through that and of course into the air force and on the pilot training but my first airplane eh operation and was the F. One hundred which kind of an interesting about that as a kid growing up I mentioned that my first flight and the t thirty three was There'll beach airforce. Base happened to be two three fifty four th wing air flying f one hundred's so as a kid. I got a lot of Hans and I never thought that I'd be one of those guys flying the F. One hundred it's an amazing airplane. Yes it is about you. My first light was in a was in a Tri Pacer and my I had a I had a friend in elementary school was interested in aviation as well and my brother and we saved our money and we parents take us out your fort and got a little introductory flight And the next one after that was on my way to the Air Force Academy Outta me. My Kademi lays officer now. This central Florida had a steer men and he put me up in the German to go flying and that open cockpit Pitt. Experience was quite a thrill that is pretty cool at the step up from a Tri Pacer. Quite a bit so we'll talk a little bit about how you guys transitioned into the F. One seventeen program And currently I guess we should start with you since you you were there for pretty early on to keep household about that yes and the late nineteen eighties. I received my backup of it in late late. Nineteen Eighty I was just finishing the eight and fighter weapons school and being reassigned their analysis to be the assistant operations officer in that unit. Something I'd really want to do for some time really looking forward to it but no sooner had I arrived in the squadron and I got a phone phone call from the gentleman I had never met before. who asked me if he could meet me a specific building a specific perfect room at a specific time in several weeks ahead? This guy's name was Bernard Bob Jackson Quite a character in his own right in On the predetermined date and time I arrived air knocks on the door. Door opens about an inch. And I hear this voice is. Are you whittling. I said Yes sir they let me see your ID card slip it through the door. Who knows what's going on the other side he's probably chuckling or whatever but invites me in and we have about three five minute interview that Everything he offered was great but not assured I took him up on his offer. And that's how I joined the unit and made a commitment At that time and two or three months later one of the first in whoops called the initial padres to show up. We didn't have a permanent place to stay. We had a couple of Single wide trailer on on the flight. Line at Nellis Air Force Base and I spent about four and a half five years With the unit I watched it go from obtaining are I eighty seven to become an seven unit the with the as our cover story story Doing Avionics testing and of course I was For whatever reason nothing unique about me because because there were several very talented and capable people in part of that initial Kadre but Colonel Jackson for whatever reason he did elected to Have may be the first operational pilot now. I've had two theories about that. The first is I was expendable. Yeah and so. If it didn't work out nothing was lost but and as it turned out That that was a very unique experience and then of course Being the first operational pilot help check out the next guy and so on and so forth and eventually we received airplanes wanted to time and we checked out people want at the time and by while the intent was by nineteen eighty two to have limited operational operational capability. We simply just didn't the airplanes fast enough because some challenges that they had faced in that process and well how to build it exactly and each airplane was very unique in his own right. What those first few coming up? Because there's a lessons learned very quickly. Adjustments were being made in the Production and June of eighty five rolled around I had basically Evolved into being the Training Squadron Commander and I left the unit about four or five assignments later in August of nineteen ninety. I showed back up on the doorstep So we we had come all the way back to band at one fifty and being the first operational pilot. That's the how we came about my bandit number

An Interview With Airforce One Pilot Col. Mark Tillman

"Know you do a lot of training on the on the backup aircraft. You know is there. Is there any odd training that you can talk about that. You guys had to do with with the airplane or anything like that. That may be a normal seven forty. Seven captain wouldn't have to do that that that's able to be talked about. No we did a lot of simulator training so you'd go oh through the simulator in your primary aircraft every years while as your secondary aircraft so I was in Gaul stream three and seven forty seven pilot my deputy was a seven fifty seven some forty seven so any aircraft the eighty ninth airlift wing had we always had one pile was qualified and in case we needed that capability for the president so but we did a lot of training in the actual aircraft we also we did simulator training but in the actual aircraft we pulled engines back we flew onto engines. We did everything so we knew what was going on with that aircraft. checklists not necessarily memorize but in reality they kind of were as well as emergency procedures everything else so when you simulated emergency for one of the pilots the pilots really had to know basically what the checklist was going to say even though the flight engineer's run on the checklist for you. That's what we'd quiz modest. Ask Them. Hey you know what what do you think the next step is and they'd always tell you yeah. This is the next step. This is my plan and this is what I'm GonNa do because you know what a lot of people don't understand is that you know you air force one. Nothing is ever GONNA go wrong Air Force One because the moment it does your carrion in fourteen press in the back. You've got press all around you so the message of the president that day will be completely shadowed by this is what happened on Air Force One so something as simple as just an electrical glitch. We make sure it never happened so if you're doing anything electrical wise the engineers talking it over with you before he throws switch because all you need is had the president downstairs doing an interview and all of a sudden lights go on and off and then everyone's like I you know what's actually happened to the jet here so you know secondary electrical systems online before you do anything crazy so I can imagine that something like that you know in inadvertent deployment deployment of oxygen masks in the cabin would probably not a good day. Yeah I mean that is we. There's there's is to engineers secondary engineers always back in the primary up so something simple as opening the door an open the passenger door the war you know double check in to make sure that the slide is an armed or whatever you know and just crazy stuff like that just double check and each other so it it they ever had like an accidental inflation of the slide they may have they may have back in the Clinton administration but it was it was purely accidental and and it you know it was just one of those things where people think you know that when the slide deploys you can hold shut the door. That's not gonNA happen so it was it was on the news so I'm not telling on any secrets. It was on the news but you know president. Clinton was a great man he literally you know it was like whoa not this door and we brought them to number. Two just without show truck comes up to the second door. Not The prime doing left so I would imagine just little little things like that. probably have a ripple effect. I mean because using a different door on an airplane seems small when you have you know secret service and media and everything I mean that probably causes. There's a ripple effect. I would assume that I definitely I mean it's an orchestrated event every movement of that aircraft so when we go to a new airport we send in our every time we go to an airport will send in two or three advance agents. They run a two three hundred question checklist to make sure that everything is has been set so it's I mean heck. We brought the plane here. The seven forty seven back in July of two thousand thousand four the challenge for us was we couldn't go down any of your taxiways because you didn't have a tug for us so we had to turn the plane around on the runway. We need like a hundred and fifty seven hundred and fifty eight feet to do a turnaround your runways one hundred fifty so we had the knows we'll go through the end taxiway so we we had we had people out there market so I could have an actual assessment of how I'm doing in the turn and I had to get far enough down the runway. Turn and just bring in the plane back around and let us sit on your way so President Bush went ahead met with the local folks here in Oshkosh and then then he came back to the plane so we tied up runway for a couple of hours hours. That is absolutely remarkable. I when you're talking about going to an airport you've never been for you. If you're sending out agents in advance dance team would you as aircrew ever pre visit that airport just to make sure you understood the the Leyland. Just I can only imagine for me as a as a private pilot Alexa travel around I going to an unfamiliar airport is you know he's a thing on my checklist of stuff to be very a little bit the extra aware of and and thinking ahead to him. I GonNa Park things like this somehow. I have a feeling that the laming Air Force One someplace you've never been and then saying you know you know. Can we get a progressive taxi taxi instructions Adam sorry. Did you say it. Was that left on Bravo. Yeah that doesn't happen. It's kind of a thing where when you before you go into the airport. The advanced team has already given you a document that shows if you take taxiway kilo off the runway going to make a right on kilo a right on Delta Okay and you follow yourself in and it's not it's not one of these things where all of a sudden as you're taxiing the tower goes you know now go echo foxtrot auto pull off the runway contact ground now and then hey ground is air force one said Roger Air Force One you know welcome to whatever it's not air force one taxiway Delta Echo short so that one fifty that doesn't seem to happen. We seem to own near its. That's gotta put There's obviously there's gotta be something maybe satisfying isn't the right where the sort of comforting comforting of just knowing that you're obviously you're taking your role extraordinarily seriously but probably about a seriously as as it gets you've got got you know you've got important passenger important important people on board the airplane. There's gotta be nice to know that that call sign carries that weight of saying okay. This is Air Force One. You know you're not gonNA. They're not gonNA send you over here to the far end of the airport. You hold well six other airplanes. Go in front of you. All this sort of thing visit got the the the pressure must be remarkable as well of knowing the everybody's watching and everybody's listening and everybody's paying attention the definitely I mean they ah the air force won't call sign immediately. Has Everybody watching you when you land at an airport if you've got a group airliners that have been waiting number one while you're coming into land and there's ten none of them. Every one of them is pretty you know. They're happy to see the plane but they're also upset by the fact that they've been delayed. The big joke always was for us Sir we took it extremely serious not to delay anybody but like landing in Atlanta couple times some of the airline pilots instead of being on the PA it actually still be on the radio announcer their pastors over the radio you know if you look to your left there's Air Force One and that's the reason why you're being delayed. That's why your money and all that stuff and then the tower would come up and go. Hey that was a tremendous speech and you just gave it to everybody here at the airport. It's kind of funny stuff but you can you can understand it says their frustration but for us it's it was truly an honor and everywhere we went day was neat to have the air traffic controllers controller's. There were right there with Air Force One you know it's an honor to be with you and it's an honor for them to control us and we look at it that way as well because it it is not easy to control us. I mean we have to land to the second and while we're coming in at you I mean we typically do eight four mock everywhere. We're going and nothing nothin' says. you know we're in trouble. When we leave Washington? We're heading no o'hare and we're doing eight mock as we're truck and across sometimes nine Oh mock trying to get the president of back on time and the bow wave a moving airliners out of the way for us is is a credibly difficult job for the air traffic controllers but Sir they make it happen and they do an amazing job force now. It's incredible. I you know the one thing I wanted to ask you your time but how you basically when I basically do work for the president Can you explain he'd say Gel pretty well. Did you get the no the President Senate or House that Hell is that relationship. I guess on a day to day basis. Let you know how does that. How does that all work? You know the president is got a lot of people underneath them. In the the commander of Air Force One technically is reports of the United States Air Force as well as the White House military office but he works directly and assigned to the president so so the face of the crew is normally the president's head flight attendant that we have so that that's who the president deals with the majority of as a pilot normally deal with the president's chief of staff or maybe deputy chief of staff or a lot of times you deal with the Millay to the president Let's kind of face for the president but if the president needs something he you President Clinton President Bush they had no hesitation to come to the cockpit you know and Tillman we need this or whatever and it's a and you just make it happen. I mean it's truly an honor honor to support them and it's pretty easy to make. All you know what they want to have happen happen. 'cause I mean they're. They're not asking for crazy stuff. They're just asking for the ability to get to the locational occasional.

"Need that as an advanced training for like before the students come to dude full simulators because they can do it at the hotel room at their house and so that their time in the actual expensive simulator is as efficient as possible. That's really interesting because there's clearly people want to be given what they need to get at their convenience and not have to go and and it's nice to see that the corporate world is realizing realizing that to take advantage of that they need companies that are innovating in that space and so taking a something that was seen as a game and now suddenly. It's becoming a corporate britt education enabler. That's pretty pretty cool yeah and this is one of the big things that we're trying to figure out in our first year at oshkosh is what what direction do do people want us to go. We know what our base currently wants and that's lots of airliners and things like that right when you put simulator. That's what people tend to want but in this space it's a little bit different and we even have i mentioned the four flight integration for flight actually has said to us well. You know what we use infinite flight all the time because is we're not happy with the solution that we had before so we fire up infinite flight. It's very fast and we can test our product so it sounds like infinite flight and let's actually talk a little bit more like a more about what it's like. It's it's mobile but it sounds pretty robust. What what is what exactly is your vision or house at with the feature center house. Tell me a little bit more about what what would experience as a as an infant flight user so the way you started as you select an aircraft region to start from an airport taxi a gate and then you get into through the cockpit and the way you control.

"Saying dick about the opportunity that Oshkosh for different stakeholders to come together and have these conversations like that, because, you know, if you have some thoughts you have some opinions and you don't you know, express them and talk about them with, with other folks. Then there's not much value in, you know, in your opinion. Well, yeah. The opportunities there. And if we give away the opportunity, then that, that train passes us by and things are put into place that are very difficult to change. Once they are set in stone and put into place. So it's important that your voices heard the FAA is there. Of course, they have a big facility right on the ground. So I encourage people to stop by, and talk to the policy makers talk to the people who are there, we fully expect to see the administrator or the acting administrator, whoever happens to be in office at that point to join us once again, at Oshkosh and, and take a look around and see what's happening in the nation community. What's happening with technology and be aware of that, not only from the new technology. But some of the things that we're trying to do regulatory breaking down. Some of the barriers Oshkosh is a very important place where we can not only tell people about it and talk about it with the FAA. We can show them. We can. Take them, right. Over to it. And say here's what's happening either. Here's the good or cure the challenges, we face and can do that on a on a one to one basis. All right. Very good. Dick, do you get enough sleep at night? I mean, do you do you find yourself lying awake worrying about how this is coming together or have you done it so many times now that it's no big deal? Oh. Well, it's always a big deal, whatever. He's a big deal. It's there are times that your wake up in the middle date. And all, yeah. I've got answer that Email, that's gotta get done tomorrow. Or, you know, did I order that thing off to look it up when it gets to work and, you know, those type of things, you know, we, we have a thing we do on staff, saying, we can sleep in August will, we'll take care of that in August. But, you know, at this time of year it's, it's a heck of a lot of fun. There's a lot of anticipation. There's a lot of excitement coming in. Really people are what we learn. Every year is people come to Oshkosh come to venture for their own reasons. They have personal things they want to do their favorite type of airplane, what they want to see fly with they want to buy as far as technology, the friends, they want to meet. So you have hundreds of thousands of people all coming to us cash for their own personal reasons which makes it incredibly exciting, but also a great challenge because how do you try to fulfill that experience? When you have that many different desired outcomes, that actually are part of it, interesting Vic, do you have any tips for first timers? Well, it all depends if you're flying your own airplane in and I will say this, every time read the note them understa-. The note them one thing that we have this year that we learned from last year, you may recall last year when we had some bad weather on Sunday forehand, and then the weather listed about two o'clock, and it became a rush to get the Oscar and it was something that a lot of airplanes trying to get to the same place at the same time. I don't care if you're kosh oral hair or teeter borough or Hartsfield, you do that you're going to stress the system, and that's what happened. So we made some tweaks with the note him put forward, a lot of suggestions. The FAA took some of those put them into this year's note him and one that we have that's new this year is actually a text messaging system for pilots to learn where the arrival procedures are, if there are any backups anything like that. So, you know, tell pilots right now all you have to do is text us. Arrival h arrival. So it's always. H. A R. Our IB L two six four six zero zero six four six hundred and then you'll automatically sign up updates as far as the current status of parking as far as inbound procedures arrivals, and so forth that will help pilots lot..

"Guest. That's dick convince ski he's director of communications for the experimental aircraft association. The EA dick. Welcome to the airplane, geeks podcast. Well, thank you so much. It's great to be here. Always a pleasure. Talking to you, especially before. We're getting ready to go to Oshkosh. Yes. We are the, the, the big event of the year is coming up. Pretty quick. I think July twenty second through twenty eight twenty nineteen and we're going to be talking with dick about your venture Oshkosh coming up. But first, we've got a little bit of news. We want to hit up on. And so ask is everyone ready running from the west. I story, you know, I saw this on the news tonight, a travel nightmare, waking up cold and alone in a darkened plane. Mexico was an Air, Canada flight, I think, from Quebec City to Toronto indeed. And you know, this is not the first time we've had a story like this, I can't remember the last one was in Canada as well. Probably not. But boy, if you're gonna wake in the, you know, cold, dark, airplane, you'd like to be in a warmer country which this did happen in the, the summertime but I think it's a little ironic is that the, the passenger Tiffany Adams said that she had been the little anxious on the the flight to begin with. And then she fell asleep says who's experiencing anxiety and insomnia. And when she woke up gosh, she was in the back of the plane by herself aircraft was dark and cold, and it was moved back away from the terminals. Of course, what would anybody do you whip out your cell phone, and of course, the battery was dead? There. She was an airplane trying to figure out now. What do I do next? She apparently made her way, up to the cockpit and found a flashlight and then she figured out how to open the main door without apparently, deploying the shoot, which are the, you know. The, the water shoot there and from there. She just went ahead and flash. The flashlight on the exterior of the aircraft, which all that was rather clever that would tend to magnify the, the flashlight and eventually a luggage, cart driver Cape over. So she apparently has still having trouble sleeping because she says he has reoccurring nightmares about, you know, a waking alone locked up in someplace, dark. So what a what a tough experience. I guess I mean I would have seen it kind of as an adventure. First thing I would look for is where's the food, after I found a flashlight I think, but maybe the big issue is. How was she not seen by the crew, or the, the cleanup people or whatever that you would expect with kind of run through the airplane? I mean, maybe not necessarily always expecting to find a passenger. Still in the plane, but, you know, somebody could have forgotten a bag or there could be something else left that either was left by mistake or was intentionally left with ill intent. So I think that's kind of concerning. I don't know. Dick, what do you think if you'd woken up in the dark and realize that you on on an airplane? What do you think you'd do next? Well, I look for the keys, I up in the cockpit soup we can turn the thing on and get going. All that aside, that is a little bit amazing. Because usually the flight crew makes check of everything, and then the cleanup crew and so forth. We'll go through an airliner to find those sort of things that is a little bit odd. I'm not sure how sometimes you know, the discount airline has some surprises for you. I guess. Well this was this was Air Canada. So should be a discount airline. So, yeah, that's something for Air Canada to investigate. I think try to understand what happened. What didn't happen that should have happened. I the well, I guess, different people are frightened by different things of if it was me, I, I guess I wouldn't have been as anxious, maybe.

I may have mentioned once when we're talking about travel the cranky concierge and the cranky flier Frankie concierge service at the cranky flier offers he had a plane spotting festival that he has once a year in September out at the in-n-out burger in LAX, and it's a wonderful place to eat burgers. If you're familiar with in and out, it's a chain out there in in California and the far west, and it's right out there by the end of the runway and in LA, and so people get together. It was the biggest one this year. It gets about seventy people were there. Eating burgers, watching airplanes, and taking pictures, and and having hang or talk next year. That's pretty back to experimental aircraft. John Denver longtime ago, he crashed his plane and died. I heard that was an experimental aircraft. Are you familiar with what happened on that? I don't remember exactly what happened experimental again doesn't necessarily mean something that is is unsafe or something that is strange..
