First show of the year! In today’s episode, we talk about the amazing sole survivor story of seven year old Sailor Gutzler. The Gutzler family was returning from their vacation in Key West, FL in their Seneca II (N81291) when the engines lost power over western Kentucky. The Piper PA-34-200T crashed in a wooded area, killing Sailor’s mom and dad, older sister, and cousin.

Updates on AirAsia 8501 and Virgin Atlantic 43, the 28 hour saga of passengers on Etihad flight 183, the US drone fleet “at the breaking point,” and active sidestick controllers round out the news segment. Applicable links below.
