Al and Marc have talked to a lot of people who are focused on following their passion and making a positive impact in General Aviation. Tonight's guest is connected in diverse and new ways. Abingdon Welch heads up The Abingdon Company (http://theabingdonco.com), a company focused on providing fashionable and functional watches for women pilots. Beyond meeting this previously unmet need, Abingdon is focused on increasing the female pilot population through scholarships and advocacy. She is also an accomplished CFI (she was highlighted as one of Ariel Tweto's instructors on the show, "Flying Wild Alaska"), and also ferries aircraft around the globe. Listen in as Al and Marc officially confer Abingdon a true aviatrix.
The crew also talks to and congratulates one of their loyal listeners, who had his first private pilot candidate pass his check ride. Other discussions include the new CACI rules, which empowers AME's to authorize medicals that previously required a Special Issuance. Finally, "The Case of the Missing GPS Approaches" is discussed, as Garmin released some 34 pages of exclusions on their recent database cycle.
Thanks for listening. Wishing all of you blue skies and strong tailwinds!
