Student Pilot Journal Podcast #27

Simulator Fun!

I got bored this past weekend and hooked 2 computers together with X-Plane. One was running the outside view and recording. The other was running the inside view so I could fly. I am sure there are better ways to do it. This could open up for some interesting future podcasts.

Student Pilot Journal Update

Hey All!

Went up for a bit today. It always feel great to get back into it and it also recharges by batteries a little bit and encourages me to at least put out a video update. The podcast is always on my mind but I am lazy with the video lately. Sorry again!!! Thanks for the continued support.

Flying Today

A beautiful day for flying here in Florida. We had some storms roll in Sunday evening and stay through early afternoon yesterday. Today is crystal clear...for now. Going up for a lesson with Casey to do some instrument work. I believe we will do some basic hood work and then if we have time we will work on some VOR tracking and intercepting. I had to break out the books to get re-familiar with it again. As I always say....work gets in the way of the things that you really want to do. I will mount the video camera and at least capture the footage. I don't know when I will get back on track for editing, but at least I am capturing the moments so keep checking back. In the meantime, I have something to throw out to you all the viewers.....if you all are still out there. :-) I get email from time to time from student pilots that are beginning their training. I enjoy hearing your stories. If any of you are interested I will like to post photos with a short story or description of where you are training and any other useful information. Video is welcome as well as long as it is of decent quality. I will create a location to upload video so please do not try to email videos. I would like to include some of this in future podcasts...maybe at the end of the video segments. You can contact me at greg@studentpilotjournal.com for any details....especially when it comes to video since maybe some formats work better than others in the editing process.
