Multi Engine Check Ride Passed!

Took a short vacation and headed to Cadillac Michigan to do my Commercial Multi Engine Add-On. This part of the country is gorgeous but not sure I could handle the 12′ of snow that they typically get. Had a great time and another rating knocked out. Getting closer and closer to obtaining my goals.

MPC-005 Bush Flying in the Alaska Mountains with Brad Benson

In this Episode:
Southwest Airlines Lands at the wrong Airport.
Textron Purchases Beechcraft for $1.4 Billion
FAA Apologizes for the delay in the Drivers License Medical Program
Bush Pilot “Brad Benson” Describes flying in the Alaskan Mountains.

Bush Flying……What is it?    In this episode I sit down with Alaskan Bush Pilot Brad Benson who flys and runs a small charter/aerial sight seeing business based out of Healy Alaska.   Brad describes what it is like to fly in and around the mountains of Denali National Park, home of Mount McKinley.  McKinley is the highest peak in North America rising up to over 20,000′ in the air.   Bush flying is often thought of as some of the most dangerous types of flying that there is.  There are all kinds of hazards involved including, terrain, weather, emergencies and the skill that it takes to handle all of these conditions in a moments notice all at the same time.   Bush pilots typically operate out of small, unimproved runways that most of us would never dare put our prized Piper or Cessna down on.  These guys do it everyday as a way of life.   Up in Alaska, Airplanes out number all other means of transportation.  It is a way of life that would not be sustainable without the Bush Pilot and his Machines.   Flying in the bush……Yup, its just another day at the office for Mr. Brad Benson.
