Show Notes

On this episode: One of the most intense chunks of real ATC audio I have heard in a long time. We talk about why a pilot would do such a 'crazy' thing, and whether or not it should be recognized and permitted. Housing provider at the FAA Academy, Isola Bella, sends out a rather startling notification to their residents, and a Swiss air traffic controller is sentenced for his role in a 2013 operational error (or "deal") involving two airliners.
