US Airways A319 by Paul Filmer

Author, writer, and pilot Kevin Garrison returns to discuss aviation news and offer the benefit of his years of experience and wisdom. Kevin tells us about the Kentucky Institute for Aerospace Education that seeks to improve student learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and create career pathways in aerospace. Kevin’s books, including Kindle editions, can be found on Amazon.com. His new ebook Fly Like You Mean It will be released soon for the Kindle.

In this week’s Australia Desk Report, Steve and Grant talk about an LSA that crashed into a ferris wheel, three ex-RAAF tankers purchased by Omega Tanker, and Grant gets a carried away explaining the Albuquerque Box Effect.

The US Airways A319 post photo taken at Anchorage International (PANC) is from amazing photographer Paul Filmer. Find his work at Skipyscage Photography.

Listener Micah sent along some photos from the Grand Opening of the new terminal at Portland International Jertport PWM in Portland, Maine. The tour by Airport Director Paul Bradbury went behind the scenes through the baggage handling and screening facilities, and the HVAC system, which is geothermal! Paul is a great supporter of plane spotting and set up a free parking area with signs and pictures illustrating the kind of commercial aircraft that fly in and out of PWM.

    God I love Kevin’s comment about not being management around 13:30.
    “I liked flying and my parents were married”. Absolute gold. The airlines should be held accountable – execs in particular.

  2. TKO: Kevin is a pretty funny guy with great industry experience and it tells it like he sees it. I can’t believe we waited so long to have him on the show again!

  3. Wow, Geeks great show. Kevin’s wit is so fast I felt like my mind was on a two second delay. I enjoyed hearing about his efforts to get youth involved in the aviation industry. I also loved his Be Proud You’re a Pilot missive. That was just great. The Aus desk was entertaining as always and Peter’s Across the Pond was fascinating. Keep up thee good work, Geeks!
