Josh Flowers from Aviation101: Tools to Help Avoid CFIT
"I WanNa talk a little bit about Actually kind of bringing in a tool that you and I used I. I didn't brief you on this or anything but a tool that unite us when we flew from battles down to Nanna on our way back. 'cause we got in a situation where we got a close to see fit. I. I'm not sure I'd say close but I I wouldn't it but it started to be car alarm. Bell STARTED GO OFF. We need to get out of it. Basic right so see fit is controlled flight into terrain. We were flying around the mountains. The weather was a little bit. It wasn't even like marginal really when we went in there. But I never considered a The rain could start on top of you and just come down. Which is what happened and then as I was happening we got into an area of smoke and so we kind of got in the situation where almost instantly within two minutes everything went away We were done away. Yeah and we knew that there was rising terrain in front of us. And we're going to want to climb here soon and is like all of a sudden it just kind of faded into like Milky White Mist and it was like okay So it it. We weren't close to see fit. We had so many outs. The the the important thing is our wisdom. Our past experience is what caused us to start setting off alarm bells on our heads individually. I like okay. How do we get out? Let's get out. Let's stop this. What do we do now right? Neither of US had a warm and fuzzy anymore. It went away right and when that happens like you just gotTa go with your gut and we. We were looking at four in the terrain pages and stuff. And we yeah. We had these amazing tools in the cockpit to help us get out of it but ultimately what kept us out of that situation was our aeronautical decision making and judgment to be like this just got way worse than we thought it was going to. We know that there's lower land that way we're GonNa go that way and then sure enough. We go that way and the weather got better and we can see everything yet. Yeah Yeah I mean I. I felt like in that situation where the everything deteriorated so quickly in our alarm bells. Were going off. It was nice to be able to pivot something like four flight Rome. You did a good job in that sense because you you basically looked at the train very quickly and you could see on the terrain adviser like hazard advisor where to go so we basically did a left ninety degree turn and went to lower terrain and it was. It was kind of like river valley that led to to lower landgraf and almost immediately things improved like the rain went away but then we got in the more smoke and then we follow the Yukon River down so it was interesting to to come up against those situations. You have any advice for people. I guess that the get themselves in that situation like 'cause you've been in you've fallen a lot now so you've probably had a dozen situations where it's like okay. Something needs to change. What do we do? So what is your advice for? Someone that is getting into a situation like that right. I think I think one issue is had you get yourself in that situation to begin with but we're talking about like in the plane. They're already in the situation. Worry about debriefing. It later when you're in the plane. What tools do you have to to help you with that? Like even if you've got a garment for thirty bring that thing up to the terrain page and start looking at what you've got around you and of course I just want everybody flies with an IPAD. These days use that become. I've I've run into a lot of pilots and in fact we just had this conversation with my dad about this morning. Dan Greider right now to do this like AAC. Up Recurrent Training series in addressing fatal accident rates and stuff. And we had this long drawn out conversation about when you're going to depart in airport or you're gonNA fly around terrain or fly at night. Anything like that. There is no excuse to not bring up a terrain page of some sort like get turn on the obstacle layer on four flight or bring up the terrain terrain profile or synthetic vision that synthetic vision is awesome. You know if you've got a stratus or a century or in our case we have the garment transponder That talks to the eyepatches brings something like that. Use Your resources not only use your resources but know how to use them effectively. No every little feature And it'll you don't Wanna find out in a situation like that. It's kind of becoming critical almost like life or death critical for you to know these features and know how to access this kind of stuff. You don't want to be figuring out in that moment that you don't know how to access the terrain page or access that vision you know. Sit in sit in bed like before you fall asleep plot your eye powder pull out your phone four flight and just play with it. Learn the new features and of course four flight has all the they've got all sorts of webinars and stuff that an online videos that walk you through all those features but know how to use the tools that are in your cockpit. That's a big. It's a big deal. Yeah is interesting because when when you pull up the map view when we were in that situation I pulled it. The synthetic vision view like right away like an airplane has the ability to pull in the Harz from the airplane so I can actually see. I can't see the synthetic vision on four flight so I pulled that up. You pulled out a route and so we had like instantly a safe way to navigate in case we did go. Imc for some reason even though we were trying to avoid it and then you had an out to get out the other direction. And so exactly I. I think that's it's interesting because you talked about like knocking in the situation in the first place. You know we could rewind the clock on that in in in We could talk about that. We don't need to but it comes on the judgment. I like knowing when things are getting bad and then being willing to like knock it off and do something different right like you have to do something different to get yourself out of that and then you know utilizing tools to assist you in that

Tribal Energy: Powering Self-Determination
"For many life on an Indian reservation in is defined by hardship and struggle when treaties and laws like the Indian Removal Act signed by President Andrew Jackson in eighteen thirty four native Americans onto reservations nations. The lands they were told to resettle on often small and remote uprooted from their traditional ways of life. Native communities had to adapt their new environment without access to the services says white settlers enjoyed even today things like medical care employment and reliable. Electricity are difficult to come by many tribes like the piggeries Pueblo of New Mexico. I am governor Craig. Konczal from victories. Pablo we're located in northern New Mexico. Where about twenty seven miles south of Taus Pueblo saw so a lot of the people in pictures are fixed incomes or low incomes our job ray at the very low where isolated area where about forty five minutes? It's from any kind of a grocery store workplace jobs currently at the PUBL. Now if the lights go out or the power goes out we have no means of calling the ambulance who have no means of calling fire so these are some of the things that working in. How can we get off the grid for emergencies? Say off the grid for long term short term just keeping the lights on is a significant challenge for some tribal communities when that's made increasingly difficult by the threat threat of natural disasters in the Pacific northwest. The Spokane tribe is wrestling with the effects of climate change on its energy security. I'm Timothy Horon. I'm the Executive Director Director. The Spokane Indian Housing Authority with the Spokane tribe in North Eastern Washington Spokane tribe head Fires back to back in Twenty Fifteen fifteen in two thousand sixteen. The twentieth. Sixteen fires called the coyotes mountain fire and destroyed eighteen thousand acres and took out fourteen homes. uh-huh no one was injured. No lives were lost which was fortunate but it did come. Within a mile of the Housing Authority office and the tribal administrative the straight of center and the power line the distribution lines coming into the reservation were burnt in the fire so the tribe had no power and the power was necessary because there wasn't a backup generating system on the pump for the water. It had no independent source of water to fight the fire. I think it was a wakeup up. Call for the tribe. It certainly was for Mitt Thousand Authority because it almost took out all of our senior housing as well that it unless we were better prepared unless we had some independent systems for generating power that we were going to be at the mercy of the elements and due to climate change and the fact that our our forests are dryer. They are more susceptible to fire. We'd had a pattern of fire more than the Department of Natural Resources on the reservation said that it could remember remember. I think a century so each tribe has its own unique priorities but it can be even more complicated than that. Even within a single tribe members may be spread out across across a wide geographic area with different issues depending on where they live. My Name is Sarah sure. I am the environmental and Energy Attorney for the Forrest County. Automate community a tribe with its reservation in northern Wisconsin. And then several other pieces of trust property in both Milwaukee and Campbell sport. The tribe has a number of different challenges. One of the tribes overall goals is to be one hundred percent energy independent pendant by generating its own electricity by having its own source of energy through only renewable sources energy independence for the tribe is important for a number of reasons if we're talking about climate change for example in times of natural disaster. The traditional grid red may not be able to support all sectors of the population in areas. That are more rurally based. That's an even greater challenge because the infrastructure itself is not as developed as in more metropolitan areas so coming up with a concept that works for both the reservation in northern Wisconsin and then also the properties in Milwaukee where the tribes economic economic base is that can be challenging so having the ability to have a sovereign energy portfolio and and to be energy independent by producing your own energy gives you the opportunity to avoid and mitigate some of those natural disasters astaire's for some tribes that work with the office of Indian energy like the eastern band of Cherokee Indians. Energy Development has a direct link to their economic prosperity. I'm Joey Al I'm I'm from Cherokee North Carolina and I'm part of the eastern band of Cherokee Indians. I'm the secretary of Agriculture Natural Resources. For the tribe the energy challenges that we face are around our largest industries school school the hospital the Casino and our travel services and administrative buildings. This particular project is on secondary casino because it served by smaller utility company and West North Carolina. It's called Murphy. Electric Power Board and through this project. I learned that they are actually about sixty five. Seventy percent of the low capacity they can serve that that community and with gaming is twenty four seven three sixty five. We can't miss a second of any kind of powerless for the gaming industry. What motivates the tribe in? My view is that with the growing population. You know. The demand for electricity across residential services is going to increase we're expanding in our economy not our primary Harris Cherokee in Cherokee chair he were broken. Ground on a new things about four hundred or five hundred room hotel one hundred Thousand Square Foot Convention Center. They're also looking at expanding into an outdoor shopping area area and so the Casino represents the largest service low for the tribe and so as we're moving forward again we need to look at how can we reduce our carbon footprint and and also looking to supply our own. Some are demand so far we've heard from tribes in the contiguous United States but there are hundreds more native communities in Alaska. Many of these are located located far from any kind of infrastructure and more often than not depend on fuel flown or barged into the community for survival. My name is franny his I. I am from four Q Kahn. A village of ATHABASCA descent and we like to refer to ourselves as with Chin people bull from Grachev and four few Khan and our kitchen language means people of the flats. We're very remote village on the map of Alaska were up in the northern eastern part of the state along the Yukon River. We're actually a hub village. But we don't have any roads that you can drive out for Yukon to. We can travel on that river by vote in the summertime and bring supplies in other than that where isolated where to bring anything fresh in when we have to fly in this very expensive easiest way to set up electricity in a remote site like where we are is to bring being in a diesel operated generator. They're easy to transport they're kinda tough and they drink a lot of fuel to operate and then that brings the problem that the price is high and not only does the price get to be expensive. But we couldn't depend for to be on all the time and we didn't really have good reliable electric resources. We have to keep our water moving moving because we have extreme weather to where can get fifty below for a month. It could then warm up to maybe twenty below still still so-called at that water cannot stand still pass to always be circulating and it takes the hookup to the power plant. Keep that going wing and when our power plant was going down I thought. What can we do here what they did and what everyone we spoke to for this episode has done is reach out to the office of Indian Energy Lasana and her colleagues work with tribes native communities to identify their biggest energy needs and the best ways to address them whether that's through technical expertise education and outreach or financial support

"Nineteen forty-three. No help is coming. But it's looking there is a search out. There are characters in Brian's book, the story of the survival of one man and also the recovery of the remains and the closure for the families of everyone else in this crew of the iceberg NS. There is a search out by men who've come to Alaska for different reasons over time. But I you quickly recover the fact that at Ladd field and at the other fields in Alaska they've been part of a major battle in nineteen forty two. The battle of midway is celebrated is the miraculous moment that the aggression of the Japanese imperial navy was blunted and the Americans became the cl- began the clawback to defeat the Japanese empire. There was a subpar a subplot of the battle of midway which. Which was that Yamamoto the Admiral commanding the Japanese forces in this grand plan to overwhelm the American battle fleets in a final shootout, which was going to settle the matter between Japan and the United States. I kid you not it was the plan in Tokyo. That's how they thought and forty to send a task force to capture the Aleutian islands. And you have a man wonderful character. He's a major at this point who's leading the search for Leon Leon crane at this point. Who is he Brian? But his name is Richard Charles ragle. He came north to Alaska. To work as a professor of geology at the university of Fairbanks. He always had an interest in aviation. So before the war, he was a Bush pilot. He was a aviation instructor. He was part of this group of a flyers who were really changing Alaska during the late twenties and thirties opening up a route delivering mail ferrying people across the state. So he was it was very kind of. Pioneering time in Alaska on the ground. But also in the air as well. So he had this background and eventually became the head of the search and rescue unit at Ladd field. Not without the episode of attacking by himself, the Japanese invasion fleet in the Aleutian islands and running bombing runs against Japanese submarines to intimidate them. When he had no weapons on board. Very colorful, all these all these people in Alaska are pioneers colorful, but they're fighting a war. They're fighting a war against the elements and regal doesn't want to give up Niger's there. The search I believe at one point there, sixteen planes out. But because the last radio position was so far from the crash, which we know now to be the Charlie Yukon river, preservation nat-, natural preserve that they don't know how to find that be twenty four, and it's it's they're despairing about it. So we'll go back to Leon. They're they're looking for you Leon. But. You crash too far away from the last radio position. And they don't know to go to the Charlie river Leon knows that. He's on a river Lino seize on a river. He I thinks he's he has two walkout. Why does he think? Yes. To walk west. What what's the what's the clue for him, Brian? Well, he at first tries to go overland, which turns out to be a monumental blunder. Almost a fatal blunder. He he knows to the west is a smaller base called big delta, which was south Fairbanks. And this was he knew this was the closest civilization. But he had no idea how far away it was. He was guessing it was a walkable distance. But he also didn't know that there were tall mountains. Valleys wilderness. I mean nothing in between. He he was really trying to assess the situation based on very very limited knowledge of the area. But also very limited knowledge of where the plane was in respect to big delta and Fairbanks as well, which were pretty much. He's quickly. Understood that going overland was a non starter. So the MIT graduate is now facing the fact that the river is the highway of the wilderness, and he must stay with Charlie river you've given a map, that's very helpful. And I looked up on Google have to see where we were the river twists back and forth back and forth back and forth. So he descends to the river, and he starts marching, and he doesn't know how long he has to live. You knows how many matches he has. But he's starving and his eating snow at this point. If he doesn't find shelter and food how long do you think he has brought I think at this point. He probably has. Days to live. The the match supply was dwindling. He was facing hunger. Of course, he had he had water. But also as you pointed out by by his decision to eat snow, which would seem an obvious way to to quench. Your thirst. Also raises other problems too, it it inflames the mucus membranes and your mouth swells your tongue and in a way begins to dehydrate, you even as you're as you're consuming water too. So this was a poor decision by him. But one with with you know, he had very other very few other options. So he's walking up the river. And the reason he did this is because he knew that he was south of the Yukon river, and that he knew that the tributaries in this area would all eventually flow into the Yukon. But but clearly he had no no concept of how far away he was for those of you who are going to be lost in the wilderness. Always stay near the rivers. Because that's where the people are. That's where always the settlements are. And there it is ahead of him. And he can't quite believe that he's seeing a ten top. What does he find Brian? Well, he sees as you say ten top. And then he comes closer. And sees this tent is atop a raised platform, then he looks even farther, and he sees just beyond that a small cabin. And again, he he initially thinks it's some kind of Mirage or a pile of of driftwood that maybe resembles a cabin. He stumbles through the snow gets closer and realizes that it is in fact, a trappers cabin. That was the only one he wouldn't have known this at the time, of course. But the only one for many many miles around. So this was an incredible stroke of luck. Yes. And inside is food is warmth is it's the the roof is intact. So he it's about I figured it was about ten by nine inside with a ground of the solid floor everything to survive, although he's in very poor shape. He's starving. So he takes some time for his appetite to come back. He gives himself hot cocoa. And in the coming hours and days. He will discover that not only is there food inside. But there's there's storage of food and utilities and saws everything he needs a left behind by name may men named Phil Barral, and it says fill Baril woodchopper Alaska at first you think Phil Burrell woodchopper who is Phil beret O'Brien. Well, he is really a prototype of of what Alaska was oh, this part of Alaska was was like at this time. He traveled up around the turn of the century from the mid. West and he was a trapper. He was a minor. He was a hunter. He was a fisherman. He had odd jobs. He was living this frontier life that that many people did at that time and still do and this cabin was a place that he would go to in the summer deficient trap. And in the in the rules of the frontier that that are still there, and and not just in Alaska. You would leave a cabinet like this stocked with provisions in case someone in need came by and this person. Of course was crane at one point Phil Baril had worked a dredge that was an invention. I think it's the nineteen thirties. Is that right, Brian where they were going to get gold out of the Charlie river, the Charlie rivers a detail here. That's important. Who is chief, Charlie Brian. Well, he was a member of the EPA basket and. Guess we shouldn't call it a tribe, maybe at Athabasca culture, which is spread across central and eastern Alaska there various tribes, but they're connected by a common language, common belief system. And this chief Charlie was was one of the leaders of a clan that that lived on this river, they would face a yearly flooding they the the life. There was was extremely hard. And once the western civilization western amenities of began to arrive their way of life their traditional way of life began to disappear rather quickly. But people like Phil braille and the others at the time would would look to them and realize that they were also a store. House of of information about life in in this part of the world and learned a lot from that learned a lot about survival learned a lot about respecting the environment and so forth. Leon crane now comes to his senses. He's got mittens even got a twenty two left behind by Phil. He's got food, but he doesn't have enough to get through to the spring. He's got to get out. He's got to make the decision especially because one morning a here's an earthquake which turns out to be the ice breaking up. And that means there's going to be damage or perhaps the highway will be will be not available to him. And so he's got to move. Now. He makes a decision. I kept thinking stay where you are Leon to build a sled that he's going to haul behind him. It's a crude sled in. It's he does about four miles a day. But he starts out the Charlie river. He finds another lean to find a canoe. He found a sleeping bag before and one of his exploration. So he's got all the equipment and he's hauling it behind him with. With food but the rivers breaking up and the danger to him. Now is that he's going to crash through the eyes? So he can only walk during the day. And then he does go through the ice. How does he survive that Brian? Well, he did what is essential even though it sounds perhaps counterintuitive he plunged into the ice more than once. But the time when he was most covered with with this frozen water. He had to strip off his clothes in me at least fire and dry himself out because leaving this wet clothes on is is a certain recipe for death. So he space this several times and had had the presence of mind to to realize what what needed to be done. He keeps marching and he starts marching February twelfth it's now early March. And he is I don't think he has days to go yet left, but he certainly exhausted and in despair, and he comes across sledge marks. And then dog prints does that. Tell him that he's going to survive. I think at this point. He he had hope that civilization was nearby. But he also face this once before when he came across Phil Brill's cabin that first time and in his eastern sensibilities urban sensibilities from Philadelphia, he assumed that this was perhaps the edge of a settlement. So he was fooled once before he thought that this cabin could not conceivably be just alone in the wilderness yet it was so when he saw these these tracks, and what was set up as a landing strip for for a Bush plane. He knew that there was a sign of civilization, of course. But but he wasn't certain that that it was nearby. Not only was it civilization. There was a man named Albert aims. And there was Phil Baril himself. And when we come back.

"Emily did a lot of groundwork. She spent the past year and a half digging through church records in court documents. She tracked down priests and people who knew them all to find those skeletons in the closet, and what she uncovered is a new chapter in the Catholic church is continuing story of sexual abuse. It takes us to some of the most isolated corners of the country native communities in Alaska and the northwest. We'll hear from the accused and from the Jesuit leaders who moved them around long way, Emily discovers how the church use a college campus, the high priests, including father pool in plain sight, I've only seen photos of James pool.

It's also an educational vehicle to try to bring the people ideas that will help them help themselves to move forward in. What is pretty difficult situation up there? Of one culture that has been overtaken and kinda swamped by another culture. So we're in there trying to help them hold again. Canham is a cozy place. It looks like a house, and it's always warm inside which means a lot in the winter and gnome you can spot the station from almost anywhere in town. Because of a giant electric star attached to the antenna that reaches above the roof, a friend of mine who also worked there said if I wanted to learn the real story of James pool, I should talk to a woman named Elsie Boudreaux a few weeks later Elsie told me she'd be happy to talk I knew on some level.
