There is whining in aviation. Jet Whining that is. This week, the SimpleFlight Crew welcomes Rob Mark to the show. If there happens to be anyone that doesn't know Rob by name, we can say confidently, you've come across him in a very diverse set of aviation circles.
Rob is the Senior Editor at Flying Magazine and also edits the award-winning, aviation insiders blog Jetwhine.com, the editorial podcast The Aviation Minute, and co-produces the weekly aviation radio show, The Airplane Geeks. Each summer, Rob co-hosts “Attitude Adjustment,” a daily radio show at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh. And if that isn't enough, Rob is a regular aviation news contributor to Fox News, WGN-TV and CNN, having also served as an aviation news analyst for CBS, NBC, PBS, the BBC and a number of national radio outlets. Had enough?
But wait, there's more. He is an Airline Transport Rated pilot type-rated in a number of business jets and has logged nearly 7,000 flying hours in the airline, Part 135 and Part 91 environment. He holds a current airplane, instrument and multi-engine flight instructor certificate and even spent 10 years as an air traffic controller and supervisor with the FAA. All this makes for a great show for #avgeeks of all persuasions. Tune in for some relaxed hangar flying with Rob, Rhonda, and Marc!
We hope you enjoy listening as much as we love talking to others who share our passion for aviation. Let us know what you think!
BLUE SKIES and TAILWINDS!!!
