2019 Stuart Air Show

The Stuart Air Show highlights the importance of aviation and the service of Veterans it also provides hundreds of opportunities to schools and school age children to learn about aviation, American history and about the Armed Forces. On Friday afternoon prior to the show, schools and children service agencies from all over the Treasure Coast participate in the show for free, allowing underserved children and families an opportunity to see and be a part of the experience. The Air Show is also a ‘fundraiser’ as well as a ‘friendraiser’ for many non profit organizations. Each year the Stuart Air show donates tens of thousands of dollars each year to area charities as well as service programs for children and Veterans.

We promote a safe, family entertainment event while providing financial support to its benefiting non-profit organizations including: the Special Olympics, United Way of Martin County, Civil Air Patrol, as well as many other deserving community charities. We offer many different types fundraising opportunities for local non-profit organizations and community groups. Nearly a dozen organizations benefit each year.

Our air show is a three-day event featuring thrilling performances by nationally known performers as well as interesting and historical static displays of aircraft and vehicles. We provide multiple benefits to the surrounding community through our direct charitable giving, through fundraising opportunities for nonprofit and civic groups during the show, and through our significant impact on the local economy.

AirplaneGeeks 275 – Flight Dispatcher

AVX JMR

Phil Derner, Jr. from NYCAviation joins us to talk about his job as a Flight Dispatcher for a major airline. We talk about Flight Dispatcher roles and responsibilities: building a safe and legal flight plan, monitoring the flight, communicating with the pilots, making routing and fueling decisions, and more.

We have an interview with Mike Karrels, also a Flight Dispatcher for a major US airline. He calls it “the greatest job in the world.” We get some additional insights into the profession from Mike, who writes the My Fifty Percent blog, “A flight dispatcher’s view of the airline industry.”

The Week’s Aviation News:

David Vanderhoof’s Aircraft of the Week: The Convair B-58 Hustler, Part II.

In This Week’s Australia Desk:

Steve and Grant are introduced to a whole new term this week: “Drip Pricing” – it seems the ACCC are using the term to cover all the various additional charges that most airlines (especially the “low cost” ones) are using. Apparently they may be considered “false representation” or “misleading or deceptive conduct.”

Meanwhile, in other news:

  • The newly elected Australian Federal government has launched their Aviation Safety Review as they promised in the election (a kept promise? Grant is amazed!)
  • Virgin Australia are raising an extra $350 million via a “rights issue” which could be an indication that they *might* go private (despite Air New Zealand denying it strongly).
  • Air New Zealand are themselves suspending trade of their shares as the Kiwi government looks to sell down their share to 53%
  • The Australian Defence Force provides heavy lift assistance to help get emergency equipment, supplies & medical teams to the Phillipines.
