Blogs & Blog Buddies Part 2!

Aux Cockpit Selfie sidewaysFolks, from the flight blog, welcome aboard!

Several great new aviation sites have popped up recently, started by none other than our own Blog Buddies!

I’ve been Jonesing to tell you all about them, but other aviation stories kept landing on our desk (cough, UAL, cough!)

Well, now’s the time to catch up.

Let’s get right down to it, shall we?

But First . . .

Happy #WorldPilotsDay!


Yesterday was “World Pilots Day.” Don’t forget to thank a pilot!

Limitless Horizons


Matt G YT Channel

Matt G young pilot!Next up, Matt Guthmiller has started a wonderful YouTube channel, called Limitless Horizons.

Does Matt’s name sound familiar? Well, it’s because, 2 years ago, Matt became the world’s youngest person to fly solo ‘round the world!

Read his story HERE!

I was fortunate to meet up with Matt at OshKosh ’16, where a great time was had by all!

Cap’n Dillon & I take Cap’n Raph for a spin in the Auxmobile!

You’ll remember Cap’n Raph from his visit to Phoenix, as well as his Making of a European Pilot, one of the most popular posts from last year.

As you may recall, Cap’n Raph is not only an A320 captain, he is also a captain on Brietling’s fully restored DC-3, and is part of the team flying it on its around the world tour . . .

And Raph has started a blog chronicling the adventure!

What’s more, I’ll be joining Raph in June for one of the flight legs when it hits the States! I’m slated to write a cover story about the adventure for Airways Magazine, so stay tuned!

Grounded No More


My good friend and fellow Blog Buddy, A320 Captain Tony Anger, started a fantastic service taking military veterans of all kinds up in his fully-restored WWII trainer, Amazing Grace.

Rather than blather on about it, here’s Tony himself to tell you!

Direct Link to video:

He’s also taken a few familiar faces up in it as well!
