Drones in the news, both good and bad. The good? Easy jet is using them to inspect their fleet for dents and bumps. The bad? A US Airways Express jet nearly collided with a UAV while landing at an airport in Florida. UAVs are here to stay, so let’s lay down some rational rules to keep everyone safe.

Lots of feedback on this episode, including an extended discussion of turbulence, inflight icing, transponder codes, flying cars, college degrees, and more!
