Episode 61 Show Notes

Topic of the show:

Delta Whiskey sent in some questions regarding a recent show on the Aviation News Talk podcast, hosted by Max Trescott. During their discussion about ForeFlight, Master CFI Gary Reeves made some remarks relevant to air traffic and we try to relate them to the TRIAD. RH and AG also discuss filing IFR flight plans, alternates, weather minimums required at your destination, and good practices using arrival and departure procedures. Thanks for the great questions, DW!

Special thank you to Max Trescott for allowing us to use some of his audio for our show. Check out his podcast: Aviation News Talk. It’s a must listen for anyone that loves aviation!
