There are many podcasts related to aviation, but I thought I would share a couple with the team.
Uncontrolled Airspace Podcast
Each site contains additional information on how to listen to the podcasts directly from the Internet, and how to download them to your ipod, ipad, or other digital (mp3/mp4/etc.) player.
Just added to our Events calendar page: "One Tank Flights," an interactive guide to events of interest within a couple hours' flight of our base airports. If you're looking for a day-trip destination, you'll probably find it here.
Our illustrious President, Howard R., has penned a very good, accessible overview of what it takes to become a pilot, To Venture Into The World Of Flight With EFC. This essay details the investment in time, money, and commitment required to earn a private pilot's license. Recommended reading for anyone interested in learning to fly.
Includes IFR certification.
Over in Galleries, our illustrious Club President has contributed some photos from the 2010 EFC Safety Seminar, held at the Detroit Yacht Club. The annual Club seminar is a mini-lecture and knowledge exchange session in which we review operating procedures, discuss any safety-related incidents from the past year (of which there were exactly zero!), and hold an open forum for members to share their flying experiences. Oh, and enjoy very good meals and libations, thanks to the outstanding DYC catering staff. A good time was had by all, as usual!
