Stuck Mic AvCast Episode 35 – Lost Comms, Squawking 7600, Track Up Vs North Up

Todays show discussions involved what to do when losing radio communication in Class Bravo and Charlie airspace and the results of a survey involving the topic of Track Up vs North Up when flying and navigating with moving map displays.


First flying video of Rick’s bird dog flight with Paul Santopietro that brought us the interview in Episode 32a is NOW available on YouTube! Be sure to check that out and stay tuned for some additional videos to come from that fall flying day.

NBAA 65th Annual Meeting and Convention in Orlando is just finished up today, November 1st. Hopefully you had a chance to visit and check out everything they had to offer.

For our airshow lovers on the west coast we bring you the Jackie Cochran Airshow in Thermal, CA on November 3rd. On the east coast we bring you the Wings Over Homestead airshow in sunny Florida also on November 3rd and 4th featuring the US Air Force Thunderbirds.

A friend of the podcast is conducting a survey on GA Pilot Starts to help identify how we, as a pilot group, can improve and grow our beloved industry for the future. Please take a few minutes to submit your answers. The data is being used privately and no person or entity is profiting from the survey results.

For the What’s Great About Greenland segment today, Rick Felty shares “hiking”. Greenland offers amazing opportunities for hiking adventures to near, untouched areas of the country where no man (or woman) has gone before. But only in the summer months, so please, pretty please, don’t go hiking there in the winter…

    I never really thought about the whole North up versus track up until this episode. Interesting discussion. Thanks!

    This seems to be a much discussed issue. My theory is do what is best for you.
