PCDU Episode 126: Emirates Wants You!

03/10/2016 11:47 AM
They say patience is a virtue and hopefully our audience has plenty of it because it's been a while since our last episode was released. Fortunately we've been able to make some time available to record content, edit it and get this episode into the feed. For this one Steve & Grant are joined by Maikha Ly for interviews with guests on topics including Emirates recruiting, photography at Melbourne Airport, the inaugural Womens' World Hot Air Balloon champion and breaking an ATC simulator (no, really, Maikha somehow managed to do it!). This episode unfolds as: 0:09:17 - Emirates are recruiting people from around the world to join their expanding crew ranks, both in the cockpit and the cabin. We speak with Andy Longley, Emirates' Recruitment Manager (Flight Operations) about the airline, their selection criteria & process and career opportunities. With an expanding fleet of aircraft including a healthy collection of Airbus A380s & Boeing 777s, there are plenty of good reasons to consider flying with Emirates. If you're interested in joining them, check out the Emirates Careers page for more information.   0:56:39 - Steve catches up with Anna Gillett from Melbourne Airport to clarify a few issues relating to aircraft spotting & photography options at the airport, especially with the recent introduction of the Terminal 4 car park.   1:06:45 - Back in 2014 Grant caught up with Nicola Scaife who had recently become the inaugural Womens' World Hot Air Balloon Champion. They chat about how she got started in ballooning, her career as a commercial balloon pilot, developing her competition skills, winning the championship and what it's like to compete alongside (and at times against) her husband.  1:42:32 - During the Avalon Airshow in 2015, Maikha traded his turboprop for the Control Tower as he had a try at Airservices Australia’s Air Traffic Control Tower simulator with Peter McMillan.  1:51:49 - Steve, Grant & Maikha wrap up the episode with the news that:PCDU will be at the Tyabb Air Show in March (we're once again producing the official air show DVD) We'll also be at Wings Over Illawarra on the 30th of April & 1st of May where, in addition to producing the official air show DVD, Steve & Grant will be joining Peter "Ando" Anderson on the commentary team. The Kyneton Air Show will be in October and although it's a long way off it's looking very promising. Photo credit: Cover art image courtesy of Victor Pody

PCDU Episode 125: Avalon Charlie (The Avalon Airshow Goodness Continues)

08/02/2015 03:57 AM
Welcome back to our coverage of the 2015 Australian International Air Show (aka Avalon Airshow) with our third release of content recorded at show. It's been a while since the last episode and we're sorry for that but as with many labours of love & fun, life gets in the way and paying the rent, keeping the family happy, doing airshow commentaries and producing the weekly Australia Desk for the Airplane Geeks often wind up taking priority over producing an episode. For this episode, we have: 0:03:33 - Grant catches up once again with Heidi Fedak from Gulfstream and they sit on board the G650ER to discuss the bizjet market & how Gulfstream aircraft fill the various segments within it.  0:13:41 - Still on board the G650ER, Grant chats with Todd Baker who used to fly AV8B Harriers in the US Marines before transitioning to Gulfstreams to fly the top brass around.  0:21:41 - Maikha Ly spent a few minutes with Andrew Carter from The Australian Vintage Aviation Society to see how he was enjoying flying the Fokker Triplane in the gaggle of WW1 aircraft at the show. We had previously caught up with Andrew & Gordon to talk about TAVAS & the Fokker Triplane late last year at the Avalon media launch session.  0:26:06 - Maikha also recorded a chat with Gene De Marco from The Vintage Aviator Limited in New Zealand about the collection of fantastic WW1 replica aircraft they brought over for the show.  0:43:13 - Steve talks with Jeff from the Australian Aviation Hall of Fame  0:50:32 - Grant gets to meet with Dr Graham Dorrington from RMIT about RMIT's involvement with Airbus' Fly Your Ideas competition and I get to talk with some of the students involved before wrapping up by chatting to Isabelle Floret, Snr Vice President, Airbus Pacific. Unfortunately the background sound was pretty high & we couldn't filter it all out so it's a bit noisy on this one :(  1:03:41 - Inside the Airbus chalet, Grant chatted with Mike Bausor, Airbus' A350 XWB Marketing Director about the A350 going live with Qatar Airways  1:08:23 - Bringing us back to corporate jets, Grant once again caught up with David Vellupillai to talk about Airbus Corporate Jets including the newly available ACJ330. They also discussed the A380 and its market niche, Airbus' view on passenger seating and the nuances of supporting ACJ owners.  1:23:35 - Show wrap up  Thanks to everyone for your patience with our delays and thanks also to those who have been contacting us to check that we're still alive and asking when the next episode would be out. We've not pod faded yet & there's still a big backlog of content for us to edit & get into the feed. Meanwhile, you can usually hear us each week on the Airplane Geeks podcast and Grant is helping out Dave Homewood with the Wings Over New Zealand Live show that comes up monthly on Warbird Radio. He's also recently appeared on Adam Knight's great podcast called Go Flying Australia as well as turning up as a guest on the Plane Talking UK podcast. We've also been mentioned on Global Pilot Life and Airport Spotting as both sites have included us in their lists of "Favourite Aviation Shows." Thanks to both sites for including us despite the gaps between episodes of late :)

PCDU Episode 124: Avalon15 Bravo (Yet more Avalon Airshow Goodness)

03/11/2015 03:43 PM
The Australian International Airshow (aka Avalon Airshow) may well be over for 2015 but our collection of content recorded at the show is still being worked on. Here's another hour of interviews & discussions and we suspect there may be another two episodes before we're through with all of it. This is what happens when you let Steve, Grant & Maikha run loose with audio recorders at an airshow :)   Steve kicks us off with an overview of the episode which unfolds as: 0:02:42 - Grant caught up with Richard Woodward but instead of chatting in his usual ride (an A380), they're chatting about the new coaxial rotor helicopters he's working on with Coax Helicopters. They're amazing machines that are being targeted at those who like to ride sports bikes without fairings.  0:10:45 - Peta Denham Harvey is the vice president of the Australian Women Pilots' Association (Victorian Branch) and she tells Maikha about the Round Australia Relay which features women pilots flying around australia to raise money for the Cancer Council. The relay started during the Avalon Airshow and will conclude in April at the AWPA conference in Launceston (Tasmania).  0:16:21 - Grant talks with GPCAPT Guy Adams regarding Unmanned Aerial Systems within the Australian Defence Force ranging from backpack units Army squads can use through to Global Hawk & Triton. The discussions also covers how the Heron UAV is operating with the RAAF after Afghanistan, the Scan Eagle platform trials, operations with Reapers in the USA and what was involved in getting a Global Hawk to land at Avalon Airport.  0:38:04 - Craig Duncan from the Airline Academy of Australia has come down from Queensland for the show and he talks with Steve about their training operations at Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport at Toowoomba.   0:49:03 - Maikha's managed to get into the belly of an RJ85 Fire Fighting aircraft that's been derived from a BAe146. He's with Ray Horton from ConAir in Canada and they're talking about Ray's career, ConAir's operations, the RJ85 and fire bombing in Australia.  1:01:06 - Grant got to take a break with Jodi Davis and review what she's been up to over the last 18 months including her aerobatic flying and working as Matt Hall Racing's domestic business development manager based at Belmont Airport in Pelican (New South Wales).  1:06:18 - With a live-to-the-mic intro from Allan Van't Padje, Timbo joins Grant to give us yet another Timbo's Tarmac with the inside word on the Avalon warbird tarmac, some fun with soft ground and storing aircraft in the now empty ex-Qantas hangars.  1:09:47 - Steve wraps up the episode

UAV144 UAS Traffic Management (UTM) Research Platform

04/29/2016 08:50 AM
A milestone for the UTM research platform, controlling drones with brain waves, FAA approval for night flying, rules for sUAS get one step closer, more from the Drone Dealer Expo, and a Flirtey goes into the Smithsonian. News NASA Marks Success for Most Complex Drone Traffic Management Test Yet at FAA Test Sites A three-hour field test of NASA’s UAS Traffic Management (UTM) research platform included 24 drones flying in all six FAA UAS test sites. Operators planned operations, entered flight plans,  and used a variety of aircraft and software. Up to 22 drones were operated simultaneously. The UTM research platform checked for conflicts, approved or rejected the flight plans, and notified users of constraints. This Technical Capability Level One test addressed rural UAS operations within line-of-sight. University of Florida held the world’s first brain-controlled drone race Sixteen pilots at the University of Florida used a brain-computer interface (BCI) to control DJI Phantoms down a 10-yard course. Each pilot was calibrated with electroencephalogram headsets measuring neuron activity, which was then bound to the controller for flight. Nocturnal UAV ops approved Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance has become the first commercial drone operator to be granted approval by the FAA to conduct UAV operations at night. Tremco plans to inspect buildings at night for energy leaks, rooftop damage, deteriorating façades, safety issues, etc. In partnership with Toronto-based Industrial SkyWorks, they’ve developed the SkyBEAM (Building Envelope Aerial Mapping) UAV using an Aeryon Skyranger quadcopter with HD video and infrared cameras. Big News: Small UAS Rule at OIRA for Final Review Law firm Hogan Lovells reports that “the FAA has sent the Small UAS NPRM to the White House for a final interagency review.” The Operation and Certification of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) rule must go through a review process at the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) at the White House. OIRA received the FAA’s Small UAS rule on April 20, 2016. Their review period averages 53 days. Interview with Drone Nerds from Drone Dealer Expo Continuing with Tim Trott’s interviews recorded at Drone Dealer Expo, we bring you his conversation with Lance Knowles from Drone Nerds, Incorporated, a distributor for brands like DJI and Monster X heavylift craft for commercial applications. Tim and Lance talk about the impact of regulations, the responsibilities of drone manufacturers and dealers, knowledge exams and check rides for drone operators, and measuring commercial drone operator proficiency. Mentioned The Flirtey drone used to make the first FAA-approved delivery in the U.S. has been accepted into the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. The Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum’s Innovations in Flight Family Day and Outdoor Aviation Display on Saturday, June 18, 2016, at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia.

UAV143 Drone Dealer Expo 2016 ? Part 2

04/22/2016 06:30 PM
An interview by Tim Trott with drone lawyer Jonathan Rupprecht at Drone Dealer Expo 2016. We continue our coverage of Drone Dealer Expo 2016 with an insightful conversation that Tim Trott recorded with Jonathan Rupprecht from Rupprecht Law. Jonathan notes that the industry will become more regulated and comments on the responsibilities of drone manufacturers and retailers. He also has a very interesting and sobering take on the many organizations that represent the unmanned industry: their objectives, focus on constituencies, power, and approach to dealing with the FAA. Jonathan comments on regulations that are coming in the future, such as the “micro UAV” rule recommendations, FAA reauthorization, Part 107 changes, and even Part 48 drone registration as a result of the lawsuit. We also hear his thoughts on the “cowboy operators” and the risks they pose. Tim Trott, from Southern Helicam, is an instructor and the author of UAS Operations: Preparing to meet the anticipated FAA knowledge test requirements for UAS Operator and/or Pilot UAS Rating and The Droner's Guide: From Beginner to Professional . In the future, we’ll bring you Tim’s interviews with a number the exhibitors at the Expo. Video of the Week Watch DARPA's bizarre 24-motor drone aircraft fly for the first time The Aurora Flight Sciences LightningStrike aircraft is intended to be a pilotless VTOL aircraft that can carry several thousand pounds of cargo and achieve a 400-knot cruise speed. A one-fifth-scale model has achieved its first flight.

UAV142 Drone Dealer Expo 2016 ? Part 1

04/15/2016 07:31 AM
Observations from the Drone Dealer Expo, hydrogen fueled drones, a drone rescue patent, and proposed federal preemption of UAS laws. Guest Mike Daniels says he has been designing, building and flying model aircraft since the 1970s. He’s flown free flight, control line, and RC airplanes, helicopters, and multi-rotors. Mike built an F550 with parts he designed and printed, and he’s currently flying a Yuneec Typhoon Q500 and an Ares Ethos Q130. His new Typhoon H should arrive at any moment. Mike holds an FAA pilot’s certificate to fly single engine land and sea planes, and an FAA repairman certificate for Light Sport Airplanes with a Maintenance Rating. Mike shares his experiences by blogging at blog.mikeflys.com, and he’s created an online e-paper called  “The UAV Daily.” He’s also starting a drone store at www.mikeflys.com where he’ll only sell products he knows and likes. Follow Mike on Twitter as @Mike_Flys. Drone Dealer Expo 2016 Mike gives us his observations from the Drone Dealer Expo he attended April 11-13, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. Mike characterizes the attendees and describes some of the event themes. A drone racing expo was held in the parking lot to demo FPV racing, and there was talk about ESPN broadcasting races. The subsequent press story With ESPN deal, drone racing gets serious confirms that ESPN has signed a multi-year deal to broadcast drone races. We talk with Mike about the theory that the timing of the FAA UAS registration requirement may have depressed holiday drone sales. We also learn that a panel discussion led to a lively discussion about UAS regulations. There was a consensus belief that a future drone operator’s certificate will require an in-person written test, not an online test. News MMC's Hydrogen-fueled Drone, the HyDrone 1800, Leads the Way into a New UAV Era MicroMultiCopter Aero Technology Co., Inc. (MMC) launched their HyDrone 1800, a hydrogen-fueled drone with a claimed flight time in excess of four hours, a one-minute recharge cycle, and a flight radius of up to 100km with a live video stream. Google Has Patented a Drone Rescue Service Google’s concept is that users could push a button instead of calling 911 and get the help they need, delivered by a self-flying drone. Lawmakers seek to ensure FAA bill won't preempt local drone laws Senate debates contentious provision against state drone laws Some members of the US Senate are adding amendments to the FAA reauthorization bill that would create a federal preemption for state or local laws related to the design, manufacture, testing, licensing, registration, certification, operation, or maintenance of UAS. Local governments could not regulate airspace, altitude, flight paths, equipment or technology requirements, and pilot requirements. Video of the Week Killerdrone! Flying chainsaw Crazy Finnish farmers built an epic drone with a remote controlled chainsaw. Mentioned Facebook will now let any camera stream to Facebook Live, even a DJI drone: Post to your wall, but from the air
