Podcast 7 The Demo Ride!

Thoughts from the Flight Deck


Flying the Liberty XL-2 ( this was an early one marked experimental)

First impression of the Garmin 430

Flying the Cirrus SR-22 Cirrus demo with pilot/salesman Eric Sanderman.

Not flying the Cessna 400 ( They take your name and don’t call you back!)

Take a demo ride, it beats just reading about airplanes.

Podcast 6 The Dreaded Stall!

 Your host is Pilot Bill


 The Dreaded Stall! or how to fall out of the sky........

Stalling an airplane can lead to emotional scars.

Lack of preflight stall instruction is detrimental to a student’s future and can stall the new pilot’s progress. (Bad Joke)

Use of the Rudder, p-factor, coordinated flight and stalls.

The correct way to introduce a stall scenario.

Fly with pilot bill and relive stall training
