Hangar Flying with Pilot Dan, Pilot Mike, and Pilot Kent for our first post-Oshkosh show
Recorded on August 8,
2006 - 01:09:30 - 37.3MB
The crew have all made it back to their respective home base after a grueling week at Oshkosh. They saw a showing of the wonderful aviation movie, One Six Right, on a new high definition theatrical projection system. The movie tells the history of the Van Nuys Airport, but is really a take off point for any discussion of general aviation.
Next, Kent does an interview with Alan Klapmeier, co-founder and president of Cirrus Design. There is also a link to the vidcast version of the interview available in the Show Links section. Afterwards, they engage in a bit of a rant about Cessna's vaporware showing at Oshkosh. Dan then talks about his experience of attending his first Oshkosh Airventure. The conversation shifts to a discussion of Very Light Jets, and how they could revolutionize corporate air travel and air taxi services. We end our Oshkosh chat with Dan giving a big shout out to "Simple Green" for the new aircraft cleaner samples he managed to wrangle.
Dan bids adieu as he is called back to a late night session at he day job but Kent and Mike continue the chat in the hangar. Kent tells of his second excellent flying adventure with Rick Durden and his friends at KCAD in Cadillac, MI, this time flying Cubs on floats! Kent describes what it's like landing on water. Kent also got to fly a Stearman biplane.
Then Kent tells of the great time had by all as he joined our buddy, "EdFred" for the grand reopening of Prickett-Grooms Airfield in Sidnaw, MI. Ed bought the airport from the state of Michigan and then put in many long days of work on the runway and property and in getting a new license for the airport. Just about the whole town showed up in appreciation to celebrate and greet the planes. Congratulations, and a Pilotcast THANKS to Ed!

As you may have heard, we were concerned that not every Pilotcast subscriber would want to receive the video casts automatically, either because they will be larger files, or they don't a have video capable player.We have the separate audio-only and video-only feeds working. If you want to get both new audio and video Pilotcast shows, you don't need to change a thing!
If you do not want your podcatcher to automatically download the videos, you'll need to change the feed URL for the Pilotcast. For audio only the feed is http://pilotcast.com/rss/audio
If for some reason you want only the video shows, the feed is http://pilotcast.com/rss/video (Hmmmm. I wonder if that works on a newer TiVo? Dan???)
The existing feed, which is http://pilotcast.com/rss will have both types of shows.
You can subscribe to more than one feed if you want separate the show types.
In iTunes, you should copy and paste the URLs above into the window under Advanced->Subscribe to Podcast I'll add some one click subscribe buttons on http://www.pilotcast.com soon.
If you didn't know, iTunes and other podcatchers are capable of playing Quicktime video files, even if your portable player can't. You may want to try viewing a video show before you change feeds.
If you have any trouble with this please let us know.--Pilot Mike
