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!

I've scheduled two more live shows:
Join us at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/fly-with-me-live :
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

Wed, 26 Mar 2008 18:05:00 +0000Delta Airlines' latest safety video has been getting a lot of hits on Youtube, and "Deltalina" is the reason. I talk with Chris Babb, the creator of the video, and with Katherine "Kat" Lee, the flight attendant who is featured in the video. Kat has gotten the nickname "Deltalina" because she looks like Angelina Jolie.
Sat, 15 Mar 2008 05:01:00 +0000Ever seen somebody get so out of control on a flight they were arrested after landing? How about two arrests in the same flight? These are some amazing stories -- even a pilot gets arrested and tells about it.
Sat, 01 Mar 2008 06:00:00 +0000I get back to my podcasting roots in this episode, and it feels like I'm starting from scratch ... almost. You'll hear people telling about various first experiences -- good, bad, and funny -- and how they were affected by them. Enjoy!

Sat, 19 May 2007 19:25:00 +0000When you walk through an airport in a pilot's uniform, it's a different experience from what you might have normally. It's almost like being a celebrity in that you get recognized. It's not like people actually recognize you - but they give you a look like they recognize that you're a pilot. Or something like that. It's most noticeable with children. Sometimes a child will stand there and hold out a finger pointed in your direction and say "look mom, a policeman." ...
Fri, 27 Apr 2007 00:38:00 +0000Last week I was in Seattle. I headed for my gate, and the aircraft that I was going to fly had just arrived. Soldiers in battle dress uniform were coming off the plane - and among the usual crowd of people gathered waiting to board the next flight out, the soldiers loved ones waited.

I'm back to work. Back to flying airplanes. After 2 months off, recovering from my broken ribs, I finally put on that uniform -- more importantly, both in a figurative and a literal sense, I put on my captain's hat -- more about that in this episode.
Plus I'm finally going to make good on a promise I made in episode 15 of Fly With Me (the second Freddie Laker interview), and I respond to some comments and emails you've sent.

Sun, 08 Apr 2007 00:02:00 +0000I'm doing my revisions -- updating my jepps. Those are the navigation charts we carry in those big black flight kits we all have. I have two thick binders filled with these thin pages of airport diagrams, departure procedures, arrivals and so on. Each binder is about the size and weight of two bricks stuck together. And every two weeks they issue changes which we have to post. As I said, that's what I'm doing now. Take out the old page, insert new one -- repeat ... it's a royal pain, as any pilot will tell you.

Tue, 22 Mar 2005 01:30:07 +0000Yes, I think "Fly With Me" would be a good name for the podcast. I'll probably change it before the first official cast.
