APG 129 – Wifi Security Threat, EAA AirVenture, Light Beacons
Play

Must be that time of year again… the Blackhat Security Show in Vegas. Another “expert” security consultant making the claim that he can hack into the wifi systems aboard airliners, causing all kind of mayhem. Problem is that the wifi systems share absolutely nothing with the navigation and control systems of our modern aircraft. Yawn.

The EAA’s AirVenture show ended last week in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Fortunately, one of the APG community members, Chad the Financial Planner Guy, was on location and sent us an audio report! Also, we talk about the One Week Wonder, an airplane built during the seven days of the show. YouTube video here.

“Watch this!” Something you really never want to hear a pilot say. A Cirrus salesman in Australia flubs a potential sale when demonstrating the excellent stall and spin recovery characteristics of the craft. Unfortunately, he had to demonstrate the CAPS (Cirrus Airframe Parachute System) instead, landing in one very unhappy woman’s garden. Oops.

More news, including the new Airpooler service, the San Jose Police Department’s misunderstanding of UAV use, and inflight internet service for GA.
