Live From The Center of the Aviation Universe
No other radio show can make the claim that they broadcasted from the center of the aviation universe. Yet, that's exactly what SimpleFlight Aviation Radio did with their on-location radio show at..... you guessed it.... Aviation Universe Pilot Shop in Bensenville, IL! We were pleased to find a packed house of over 20 visitors who came by to enjoy the show and Pizza. Now that's the way to spend Sunday night.
Many of you remember the special trips to the pilot shop, which meant plenty of "window" shopping and great conversations with those around you. The Internet has served to take that piece of the community away, but Lora Yowell and Richard Wells have shown the value of the pilot shop by being home to all aviation enthusiasts, including pilots, plane-spotters, and anyone that looks to the sky with dreams in their hearts. Lora and Richard talked of the community of loyal customers that are part of the Aviation Universe family, and how it has developed into a partnership with the local police, homeland security, and O'Hare Airport. And no aviation family would be complete without the dogs. Wilbur and Orville made themselves heard as well. Listen in and become part of the family (aviationuniverse.us).
With Al on a King Air trip, Todd McClamroch (myflightblog.com) filled in with flying colors, as he and Marc talked about the latest with regards to Malaysian Flight 370, covered aviation current events, and spent time with our friends at BoldMethod.com (Aleks and Colin). The guys took us through a Pass/Fail scenario for a multi-engine candidate, who had a slight memory lapse during his checkride. Pass or Fail? You make the call. Aleks and Colin also donned their propeller hats as they took us through what really goes on with Vx and Vy climbs. They are definitely smarter than a 5th grader.
Thanks for listening and thanks for being part of our Aviation Family. Hope you enjoy the show!!!
