This is the audio portion of the last live show I did on April 29.  You can watch the video of it here.   The next live show is on May 13 at 5:00 PM Pacific time.  Watch here.

My guest will be pilot/author Alex Stone. We will discuss his darkly comic "Hauling Checks" - a novel that takes the reader inside the world of the nighttime, shady operators of "Checkflight", a fictitious, but not entirely unrealistic, company of bad actors in the aviation world.  It's part "Catch-22", part "Fear and Loathing..." and nothing like any of the "Fly With Me" stories I produce.  This should be a fun one! Oh - the first two callers to the show via Skype will receive a free copy of Alex's book!

(or you can buy one yourself at www.hauligchecks.com)

I've scheduled two more live shows:

Join us at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/fly-with-me-live :

March 20 at 1:00 PM Pacific time with Patrick Smith, author of Salon.com's Ask The Pilot

April 10 at 1:00 PM Pacific time with Chris Christensen of the Amateur Traveler Podcast

Chris and I will discuss travel photography - and you can submit photos for us to talk about in this flickr group.

Plus, I included an interview in this podcast that I recorded on my last trip - it's the usual stuff -- there's brain injury, Cowboy poetry, and ladies underwear etc ... all in the same story.

Fly With Me Live will stream live on Feb 21 at 1:00 PM Pacific Standard Time!  You can see the show at the Fly With Me Live show page at Ustream. Please drop by ahead of time (now?) and click "RSVP".

My guest will be Flight Attendant Betty from the Betty in the Sky With a Suitcast podcast. She'll join us via Skype video chat. You'll also be able to participate in the discussion via chat and Skype call-in, if everything works as planned.

I  also hope to include a segment where I encourage pilots to call in and talk about checkride stories ("Checkride Check-in"), so if you have stories you want to share, email me -- or just call in during the show!

See  you there!

How Does an Airplane (really) fly?

You may think you know the answer to this question, but you might be surprised to hear what I learned while producing this episode. I worked together with Markus Voelter (omega tau podcast) to explore the question more accurately.

If you don't already know the answer to this question, or aren't too technically inclined, don't worry. We try to simplify it enough to give you a good idea of what's going on. If nothing else, you'll spur an interesting conversation at your next cocktail party.

Also, don't forget I'm planning a live video broadcast sometime soon.  Follow me on Twitter for updates:  @Joe_dEon

A Special Insight Into the TSA Watch List

This is not a full episode, but rather a quick update with a special announcement, as well as an interview with a pilot who tells a rather surprising story about the watch list. 

The special announcement is this:  I'm planning to do a live video broadcast via Ustream some time in the near future.  I'll post updates about it on Twitter:  http://twitter.com/Joe_dEon

You can also send me an email asking for a notification. I'll send out an email when I have a date and time established.  The email is this: --->  [my first name] podcaster @ gmail.com <--- (take out the spaces and substitute my name)

When I Grow Up

Becoming a pilot is not an easy path, and it takes motivation. Here are three true stories (and one totally made up one) about what motivated some of us to become pilots:

Ira went to England as a child ... never suspecting how the adventure would change his life's path ...

Kenya found herself on the wrong path, and needed someone to give her an extra nudge to believe she could become a pilot ...

And Tom had an experience as a young man that changed his life forever.

Plus, I tackle fiction for the first time ... enjoy!

Just a quick podcast to let you know I'll be posting soon. This one has a rather amusing short clip about a famous cockpit prank involving a "sextant".

Follow me on twitter for updates about when the next one will be out. (   http://twitter.com/Joe_dEon )

There's a video of me recording this podcast so you can see how it works behind the scenes. The link is in the twitter stream. Music is by Behrnhard Drax (  Or, for his music in iTunes:  http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/bernhard-drax/id130057249 )

Rare Bear Scare

This is what happened to the Rare Bear this year at the Reno Air Races.  I could explain what happened here in these notes, but it's better to hear the story as it unfolds ...

The sickest episode yet!

... hear about a disgusting flight attendant trick ... take a trip inside the unofficial Vomit Comet ... plus hear another visit from Fly Guy.

The "Cadet Barf" story features music from Kevin Ross (Found at garageband.com)
