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).
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.

This week, Max and Court welcome Lynn Gardner to the Airplane Geeks Podcast. Lynn is a Citation X pilot as well as a consultant for corporate and sport aviation. Since we missed last week due to the power outage, we decided to throw in a little extra news:
Max and I had this great episode lined up for this week…Then Ike hit. Actually it took more than Ike to produce the 80mph winds that hit Cincinnati Sunday. Apparently a cold front, combined with the remnants of Ike are the culprits of my lack of electricity for the past 3 days and counting.
So, after a 1.5 hour drive to electricity and internet this morning, all I can offer to all of you loyal airplane geeks is a self portrait of myself during the blackout (above), and a list of news we would have covered if I’d have had power. I promise we’ll be back next week (assuming my power will be back up by then), and Max and I will bring you great aviation discussion with another great guest. Until then, here’s the news:
But the big news to come out of episode 9 is the announcement about episode 10. We’ll be holding the first live aviation new media meet-up through Talkshoe.com. Sunday evening at 8:00 pm EST (That’s midnight zulu, for you true airplane geeks), we’ll be holding a live podcast. If you have an aviation related site, blog, or podcast, we want to hear from you. You can view the detailed information at http://www.airplanegeeks.com/live.
The main discussion this week covers the problems with service in the airline industry. How can the airlines fix the problems, and more importantly, should they? There are some interesting comments on this one.
