Sky Talk Radio, Episode 15, Aviation Podcast

In Episode 15 of Sky Talk Radio Aviation podcast features:

  • The interesting story of cluster ballooning and how it all got started with a guy named Larry Walters.  Ken tells the story of how a guy tied a bunch of weather balloons to a lawn chair and went on an adventure.  This is a true story that spawned a series of adventurists on into the sport now called cluster ballooning.  A couple of copy cat so called aviators are also high lighted with the usual Sky Talk Radio story telling fervor.
  • Don’t believe us?  (we don’t blame you) then head over to Wikipedia and check out their page on this very sport that inspired the movie (UP)  Also check out this interesting clip from MythBusters that explore this very concept.  (But Kirbs is way funnier)

Sky Talk Radio is the brain child of two commercial pilots that currently fly in the airline system.  No, we are not going to say the name of our airline because that will get someones shorts in a knot, and we just can’t have that.  We encourage and tell stories from all facets of aviation.    Not all podcast feature callers with their own funny airline stories.  We try to mix it up and feature stories, calls, and just plane interesting facts to keep it fresh.

CFI Story Episode #2

CFI Story (Flight Instructor Story)

Another amusing story by Ken in the pre-airline days of flying. Most airline pilots today spent some time in their aviation careers as a flight instructor.  It was a good way to build flight time and meet a lot of interesting people along the way.  In fact if you ask a lot of pilots today, they will say that a lot of their students along the way, they somehow know or work with them at other airlines and operations.  Aviation is a small world and it basically starts being formed when you become a flight instructor and teach people how to fly.  To start the podcast, click the start arrow.
