Live Sectional HowTo

Version 2.0 has been released!

I spent a good couple of months working on streamlining this process so my fellow pilots can quickly get one of these fun live sectional maps up and running at their home, flight club, local airport, office, or all of the above. ūüôā  In this post you’ll find a detailed shopping list, step by step directions as well as detailed videos walking you through each step of the process.  If you end up building one of these I’d love a picture of your finished project. Also I need to send out a huge thank you to Mark Harris who really dove into the code and helped me bring all these new features in to version 2. Its collaboration like this that really makes the projects a reality.

Flying Podcasts

As I continue to study up on flying by reading the Pilots Handbook of¬†Aeronautical¬†Knowledge I have also been listening to some podcasts about flying. ¬†Actually I’ve only really listend to one show so far, but I have others on the list once I finish this one up. ¬†I’ve been listening to the Student Pilot Cast. ¬†Bill put this podcast together starting back in 2008 when he got started learning to fly. ¬†He does a very nice job of blending audio captured during his lessons with commentary¬†debriefing¬†what is happening in the air. ¬†I typically listen to these on my drive to and from work, but also during the day while I’m working on computers and doing other tasks where I don’t need to interact with others. ¬†Its a nice background to my work and allows me to help get my ears tuned to radio chatter as well as get a good insight of the things I’ll be learning to do down the road.

In listening to his podcast I’ve found out about a few others that I’m excited to listen to. ¬†Here is what I’ve found so far.

If you know of any others that I should be listening to please leave them in the comments below.  You can also email me by using the contact link on the top right of the site.

Well its time to get back to reading. ¬†ūüôā
