Episode 6 – Slipstream Radio

Episode 6 is out!

Header: Brent Owens is an aircraft owner from iFLYblog with a background in corporate aviation. Tally One’s Rob Burgon brings military fighter experience to the show. Together we’ll share our experiences and interview industry insiders to shed light on the aviation topics you want to hear about.

Main Topic Narrative: In episode 6 we kick off Part 1 of a series on regulation.  We talk about the changes in the regulatory landscape our guest Phil Wilhelm has seen over a 47 year flying career.  The topic then moves to user fees and the dilemma the FAA finds itself in: They don’t want to shack pilots with more expenses, but they need income to fund much needed technological updates and pave the way for NextGen.  We talk about how regulation can be good and bad for the aviation community.

Regulation Pt1

Please share your thoughts on the subject! We’d be happy to discuss your comments on Part 2 of our regulation series.  Contact us at: brent@iflyblog.com, rob@TallyOne.com, or call 1-888-737-3734 and choose option 3 to leave us a voice message.  We just might play it on the show!
