Play

It’s the APG Black Friday Edition! The deal? This episode is free! Well, they all are, actually.

We hear the heartwarming story about a blind man who flies and lands a Cirrus SR20. A new report on several drone near-misses in recent months reveals a serious threat to air safety. It’s rumored that the FAA will require licenses for drone operators when regulations are released. A member of the tech community expresses his opinion about pilotless airliners, and Hawaiian airline Island Air takes back Christmas bonuses awarded to their pilots.
