This week, Max and Court are proud to bring you a “special” guest, Randy Petersen, Founder of Flyer Talk and Boarding Area.  Randy is a self-proclaimed “Frequent Flier Geek” and gives us some insight into the minds of a business traveler.  Word associations don’t seem to phase Randy, as he passes with flying colors (pun intended).

This Week’s News:

Max has a “Double Shock” pick of the week:

AirportGuide.com

Go Pro Digital Video Cameras

Why, you ask?  Because Max thinks this would produce some good video footage attached to a light aircraft. Video from an ultralight or LSA or a hang glider would probably capture the thrill of it real well.
