The Klapmeier name is synonymous with Cirrus. Tonight's guest brings a whole new perspective to life as a Klapmeier within the company. Ryan, Dale's son, has been around airplanes his entire life. That includes attending Oshkosh every year he's been alive!!! Join Al and Marc as they hear in Ryan's own words, how he has progressed from mowing lawns, cleaning bathrooms, and cleaning airplanes to his current role as Corporate Fleet Manager. And through it all, he has remained well grounded as a respectful employee, who loves everything about his job, and the people he gets to work with.
Marc and Al were also joined by loyal listener, Ralph Licari, who asked the guys and our listeners for advice about buying his new love, a Beech Baron. Marc covered some recent current events, including bad news from Santa Monica (SMO), good news in preventing laser light blindness in the cockpit, and new FIKI rules did Part 25 airplanes. Of course, they also got into their normal hangar flying conversation, with comments from our listeners.
