Serving is something that runs in Chris Berkers' family. His father was in during the Bay of Pigs in the late 1950's, Chris himself served in the Navy from 1997 to 2002 and his daughter is currently in the National Guard.Starting as a guardian for a World War II Veteran in the early days of Old Glory, Berkers was hooked and it wasn't long before he began taking on a more active roll that culminated into his current position as President. A dentist living in Appleton Wisconsin, Chris and I talk about how little it takes to say thank you and just how special the mission of Honor Flight is to our Veterans. With several groundbreaking trips, Old Glory has set itself apart from other branches across the country. Their Return To Pearl trip in 2011 (taking 19 WWII Veterans back to Pearl Harbor) and Return To Nam (taking 52 Vietnam Veterans back to Vietnam) in 2019 are among Berkers' favorites. OGHF covers Northeastern Wisconsin and has always done things a little differently than other Honor Flights and I was able to experience flying with them out of Oshkosh and the EAA AirVenture in July. Travelling with 99 Vietnam Veterans as part of a Yellow Ribbon Flight, it was an unforgettable day for everyone fortunate enough to be a part of it. Recognizing the need to come along our GWOT (Global War On Terrorism) Veterans, plans are in the works for an event with them in the near future as well.Like everyone that I have worked with in the Honor Flight family the past seven years, Chris Berkers has a contagious energy about him and lives and breathes all things Honor Flight. It's that passion that enables this amazing organization to deliver an experience of a lifetime to our Veterans and their families, showing them the recognition and gratitude that they so deserve.Personally, I am excited to be a small part of the Old Glory Honor Flight family, to call Chris a friend and to see what the future holds for this amazing organization. You can find Chris on Facebook, follow Old Glory there and on Instagram or visit www.oldgloryhonorflight.org

If the thought of being totally immersed in aviation, seeing every type of aircraft from unique looking homebuilts, to a full assortment of military aircraft, to state of the art commercial airliners, and everything in between, block out the last week of July next summer with plans to head to Oshkosh, Wisconsin. It is the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual EAA AirVenture at Oshkosh, a one of a kind aviation experience.With all of the conversation about workforce development in aviation, I took advantage of the opportunity to talk with four aviation industry professionals with Airbus Americas and Delta Airlines. First, I spoke with Captain Patrick Burns, Vice President of Delta's flight operations and system Chief Pilot supervising over 14,000 pilots; followed by John O'Leary, Vice President of Engineering for Airbus Americas; then the relatively young, but energetic and passionate Yeimy Daniela Garcia, an Account Director for Satair an Airbus company; closing out with Amanda Simpson, Vice President of Research and Technology for Airbus Americas. What an incredible opportunity to hear them share their perspectives on the amazing possibilities and opportunities for future generations of aspiring young aviation and aerospace professionals. Take a listen.
On this special episode of Between Two Wings recorded live at EAA AirVenture 2022 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, we talk with Olga Custodio, a retired American Airlines and US Air Force Pilot; Claire Schindler, a corporate pilot; Kerry Smith, Deputy Chief Pilot for Product Development at Boeing Commercial Airplanes; and Annie Vogel, a GA pilot and aviation journalist. The panel discussed how women across different sectors of the aviation industry can find success and fulfilling careers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9nE2W12nE8
Avination welcome back to the Pilot to Pilot podcast. This episode is the very first live podcast we have done. And I promise you it won't be the last! AirVenture was a success, met some great new people and of course great to see old friends. Hope you enjoy this episode.

Welcome back! This week we have two big events ramping up. EAA AirVenture 2022 is kicking off, and practice is starting to get underway in Poland for the 2022 World Aerobatic Championships. We talk about how much we hate social media influencers and the selfie orgy that takes place every year at AirVenture, which is why we call it AirVenturd, as well as the conflict that some of the top performers like Jeff Boerboon and Rob Holland have by not being at the biggest airshow in the U.S. because they are gearing up for WAC. We explore the registered competitors for WAC and make some predictions on some individual wins and of course team wins for the overall, and freestyle. The U.S. Unlimited Team is really strong and they are ready to kick some ass! Please go support and visit LIFT Aviation while you are at AirVenture this year. They are running a bunch of specials and discounts.

The podcast has been on a bit of a hiatus and I am excited to be back. Had a few changes happening, but let's get back to the podcast! Discover drones is your go to resource for learning about drones, drones and business, emerging drone technology and drones in STEM education. I am Dr. Heather Monthie, an FAA certificated, flight instructor, commercial pilot, remote pilot and dedicated stem educator. Join us as we discover more about drone safety, urban Air Mobility, business and education. Let's get started. FULL TRANSCRIPT:Hi there stranger. Welcome back to The Discover drones podcast. It has been just about two years since we have done an episode on this podcast. But I am back. And I think that what I wanted to do today is just reintroduce what we're doing here with the podcast, and what we can expect going forward. So when I first started the Discover drones podcast, I started it, it was started out as a quarantine project in the summer of 2020. And the I usually attend the Oshkosh air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and it was canceled for the year. So I thought I'm gonna start a podcast about drones. And like many of us, we pick up projects, and they kind of get put out into the wayside when we get busy with other things. And I had a change in my career, I had a change in some other things. And so it kind of got put off to the wayside. And so I wanted to start up the podcast again. And I kind of thought I was gonna start up a separate podcast for educators who drone. And if you're not familiar, or not a part of educators who drone it is a global community of parents and teachers and STEM education advocates and pilots who are interested in using drones in the classroom to teach children, young adults and even adults about different STEM education related topics. So things like coding, robotics, aerodynamics, weather, all that kind of fun stuff. So I had originally thought I was going to start a separate podcast for educators who join and I thought, no, let's just put this all together with discovered drones. So what I'm going to do with this podcast, we're still going to talk about drone related content, starting your own drone business, getting clients that kind of stuff, and figuring out what your niche is helping you pass the FAA part 107 exam, if you're not in the US, providing you some resources to pass whatever exam is required in your country, all that kind of stuff. But there is a very, very, very distinct need for let's talk a little bit more about how we can use drones in the classroom. And so when we talk about, you know, this concept of educators who drone these are going to be your people who are really interested in helping to teach the next generation the skills needed for the future of work, such as skills like problem solving, and creativity and computer science, robotics, engineering, aviation, cybersecurity, all the stuff that we're seeing coming up in the future. And so what we'll do is we'll talk a little bit about so I'm what I'm going to do is I'm going to have separate like sort of sub episodes, where we'll call it educators who drone. And this is where we're going to talk about things about, like, how do we integrate drones into drones into the curriculum? How do we teach with drones, all that really, really good stuff. So let me re introduce myself, it's been, you know, a little bit, if you just found this podcast, that's great. You can go back there's 10 episodes that we recorded in 2020 for the podcast. But the like I said, things have changed in my life. And I'm sure in yours as well. So but my background with aviation, computer science, education, has really all sort of come together with the, with drones. And I all growing up, I thought I was going to become an airline pilot, I was working on all of my pilot ratings, while I was going to school to get my degree in computer science. And for a few different reasons. My career as an airline pilot didn't work out.

Oshkosh — It was a homecoming of sorts for Caroline Jensen on Thursday. When she arrived at EAA AirVenture, it was with a bang. Actually, it was a low rumble followed by a deafening screech that prompted spectators to stick fingers in their ears as Jensen and her five teammates soared through the skies over Oshkosh to prepare for their performances this weekend. The Air Force major, fighter pilot and Wisconsin native is the third woman and the first mother to fly in the Air Force Thunderbirds flight demonstration team. "For me, this is a dream come true — who wouldn't want to perform at Oshkosh? It's kind of like playing at Carnegie Hall," Jensen, 37, said in an interview outside her No. 3 plane shortly after arriving at Wittman Regional Airport. Born in New Richmond, Jensen grew up in River Falls and got hooked on flight when she saw a plane flying in the clouds in a TV movie at the age of 5. She watched the Thunderbirds perform in Eau Claire when she was 13, sparking her dreams of one day becoming an Air Force fighter pilot. She didn't get her first flight until she was 15 — in a single-engine Cessna 172. Her second and third flights were to and from the Air Force Academy for swim camp and her fourth was to basic training after she had been accepted as a cadet. The daughter of a Marine helicopter pilot in Vietnam, she graduated from the Air Force Academy with a bachelor's degree in English and spent 10 years on active duty and the past five years as a reservist. She's the first female reserve officer to fly with the Thunderbirds Before joining the famous flight demonstration team, she was a T-38 instructor and assistant flight commander for Air Force Reserve Command's 340th Flying Training Group at Sheppard Air Force Base in Texas. She met her husband in glider school while they were at the Air Force Academy. He's now a commercial airline pilot and stays home in Las Vegas with their 5-year-old son while Jensen is on the road 220 days a year. With both parents pilots, it's no surprise their son has a propeller next to his bed, a Braniff Airlines poster on his wall and a bookcase in the shape of a plane tail. When she finishes this season in the Thunderbirds, she'll head to Washington, D.C., to be a congressional liaison for the Air Force. One reason there are so few female Thunderbird demonstration pilots is because only 7% of America's fighter pilot forces are female, Jensen said. "To be on the team, you have to be at the right place in your career with the right set of skills, a family who's supportive and the desire to do it. So there's a lot of things that have to happen for any pilot who wants to be part of the team," she said. She has spent quite a bit of time in the cockpit — it is, after all, her office — with 3,100 hours as an Air Force pilot, including 200 hours of combat in F-16s in Iraq. Jensen was at Disneyland with her family, standing in Cinderella's castle, when her cellphone rang in 2012. On the line were all 12 officers from the Thunderbird team calling to congratulate her. Most pilots spend two years in the Thunderbirds but because the military's flight demonstration teams were grounded last year due to sequestration, the entire team stayed together for an additional year. She flies the No. 3 plane on the right side of the diamond, sometimes as close as 18 inches from the lead plane at speeds up to 450 knots. It's not for the faint of heart. In some of the maneuvers, Thunderbird pilots feel as much as 9 Gs on their bodies and fly as low as 300 feet from the ground. This weekend AirVenture air show spectators will see Jensen and the rest of the Thunderbirds perform loops and rolls as they zoom as low as 500 feet over the crowd in their white F-16s adorned with red and blue stars and stripes. Her favorite maneuver is when the four planes in the diamond split off from each other in four directions. So is it nerve-wracking or comfortable flying in such tight formation? "It's both," she said, adding that the pilots practice their show far away from each other and gradually move closer. "It's all very controlled. I know exactly what (the lead pilot) is going to do, he knows exactly what we're going to do. There are commands we go through and we've literally done them hundreds of times," she said. "It's very deliberate, very rehearsed and very safe." This is the first visit by the full Air Force Thunderbird flight demonstration team to EAA AirVenture and because the "aerobatic box" — the air space above the grounds — is bigger than for other air show performers, convention organizers are moving spectators 150 feet back from the normal flight line. Also, residents and businesses inside the aerobatic box must leave for a few hours while the team performs.
In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Vicky Benzing. Vicky enjoyed an extremely successful career in tech and then decided to pursue an encore career as a stunt pilot, where she performs heart-stopping moves in airshows across the country. In both careers, she was often one of the only leading women which led to some interesting money stories. Born and raised in California, Vicky is an accomplished pilot, skydiver, aerobatic performer, and air racer. With over 9000 hours of flight time and over 1300 parachute jumps, Vicky has a passion for everything airborne. Her flying career has spanned nearly forty years and she currently holds an Airline Transport Pilot rating as well as a commercial rating in helicopters, seaplanes, and gliders. Vicky still remembers her first flight in her uncle's airplane when she was just a small child. Inspired by that flight at a very young age, Vicky learned to fly in an antique airplane at a small airport on the California coast while working on her PhD in Chemistry from UC Berkeley. Following obtaining her doctorate, Vicky spent three years as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Oregon. During this time Vicky authored over a dozen scientific papers on a novel laser-based technique for analyzing embedded surfaces. Her first job outside of the university environment led her to the semiconductor industry and then later to the semiconductor equipment industry. During her time in the high-tech world, she assumed positions of increasing responsibility including serving as Vice President of Technology for a $2B corporation. During the 24 years that Vicky worked in the semiconductor industry, Vicky's passion for flying never waned, and her appetite for spins, loops, and rolls returned when she took an aerobatic flight with air show legend, Wayne Handley. Following that memorable flight, Vicky began aerobatic training in earnest. She competed in aerobatic contests throughout the US, working her way up through the many categories. In between contests, Vicky also began performing in local air shows. In 2012, Vicky fully retired from corporate life to focus solely on her flying interests. Today Vicky holds a surface level aerobatic waiver and has flown air show performances at venues across the United States, including as an invited performer at the greatest airshow in the world, EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI. In addition to aerobatics, Vicky got the racing bug when a friend invited her to “come play in my sandbox” at the National Championship Air Races in Reno, NV. In her first year of racing, Vicky was chosen as “Rookie of the Year” after having won her first race ever, and in 2015 Vicky became the “Fastest Woman Racer” ever in the history of the Reno Air Races when she qualified an Aero Vodochody jet on the racecourse at 469.831 mph. Vicky currently serves as an officer of Racing Jets Inc. Vicky has also had the opportunity to work on a number of film, television, and other media projects. Vicky can be seen flying her beautiful Boeing Stearman in the documentary film “Mercury 13” which is currently airing on Netflix. Other film and television projects include episodes of “Ice Pilot” and “NCIS LA,” and extensive stunt work in her Stearman for the short film “Niner Echo Foxtrot.” And now open in Las Vegas NV is the immersive flight- ride experience, “FlyOver Las Vegas - The Real Wild West,” where Vicky can be seen barrel-rolling her red Stearman across the sky. Vicky's passion for science, technology and aviation have led her on a winding road throughout her life. She believes that by building her self-confidence and being willing to continually step out of her comfort zone is what has created new opportunities and experiences that have enrichened her life.
