Multi-cam Madness!!! My friend Jamie and I strapped a bunch of GoPros to the 172 and flew a short trip....during the heat of the day (probably why some shut off). It was a hot but fun experiment and yielded some overall great results. Shoot me an email and let me know what you think. [email protected]

SPJ Status Update Hello everyone! Wanted to send out a short video of what I have been up to. Haven't been able to fly lately. My flight review has been due for a few months now so I haven't been able to book the plane. Weather permitting I will do that in the next day or so. I still have some footage stocked away so I hope to get that out one day as well as record some new footage. Hope you all are well. Safe flying! -G Download the Podcast

Hello aviators! This episode is from October 2011. I wanted to give everyone an update on what Casey has been up to lately. His new job has been good for him, but it has meant fewer episodes as we try to get our schedules in sync to record and fly. I hope you enjoy the update and we hope to get back in the air soon.

A flight to an Aircraft Salvage Yard..... There is something really fascinating about a salvage yard for aircraft. It must be morbid curiosity for me as I look at the junked fuselages and think about their previous flights and owners. Where are they? I imagine the planes coming off of the assembly line at one point all shiny and new.....What was their final flight? We had a good time this day. On approach we were busily looking for the grass strip of zero two foxtrot alpha. It is not easy...

Simulator Fun! I got bored this past weekend and hooked 2 computers together with X-Plane. One was running the outside view and recording. The other was running the inside view so I could fly.

Status Update: Hello everyone! A quick status update of what is going on. I am getting ready for my trip to marathon key this Friday.

After this trip I can add one more place to go for the wife and fam. I generally like to fly there first so I don't have any surprises when my wife is flying with me. I know some of you may say that is part...
