This week Marc and Al sat down with the President and CEO of AOPA, Mark Baker. AOPA has always been there for the General Aviation pilot, but the focus often seems to be centered on protecting our rights in Washington. It was great to talk to Mark on a pilot to pilot basis and come to understand his passion and commitment to GA is really no different than any of us. And the fact that he is dedicated to making aviation better as a result of his involvement, is proof positive he's the right person for such a critical leadership role.
In the second half of the show, Al and Marc dug into our Facebook postings from pilots asking for our perspective on several topics. Thanks to Mark L for asking for strategies to squash the jitters associated with straying from one's home airport. Listen and Learn as the guys talk about:
@patriotpilot correctly answered our Instagram post asking for the make and model of the plane you see on our Instagram page. @patriotpilot knew it was a 1939 Cessna 165 Airmaster! Many pilots answered that it was a Cessna 195, but our #avgeek knew that the windows and strut system in the landing gear was that of the 165. Nicely Done!!!
