Host of Podcasting on a Plane. Air Traffic Controller, Pilot, Flight Instructor
What’s Narrative?No, honestly what is it. And why the heck are we talking about it on an aviation podcast?! Well, because I’m repurposing content from another thing I do. No, I’m kidding… Sort of. Narrative affects everything we hear. It’s that thing news outlets have that affects how they’re going to spin a story. And if you ask me, it’s a bummer that has to be a thing at all.Today’s a really cool episode, because we’re stepping a little outside the usual mold (as if there was one here), and pulling back the curtain a little bit. And for those in the business of making content, it’s something we struggle with sometimes. Now, this is an aviation podcast, one in which I often promise the back story in all that we do in air world, and since aviation journalism is how we spread the word about pretty much all that happens in it, I figured an episode like this is fair game. If you’re new here, this one’s a little different. Regular listeners will know that I’m an administrator at the 21st century aerospace communicators group, along with many notable aviation writers you’ve actually heard of, and if you’re curious, make sure to get on Facebook and request to be in the group too. Oh, and don’t forget to go back and listen to Episode 52 for more about us.The group is led by Rob Mark, and no matter where you fall in the spectrum of civil aviation, you’ll probably be familiar with his work. He’s the Senior Editor at FLYING Magazine and the publisher of JetWhine.com, long time Airplane Geek over at the Airplane Geeks Podcast, Graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern, but most importantly of all, frequent guest on this show….Ok maybe that’s not the most important part, but he’s back today because we really wanted to tackle a topic that’s an underlying part of just about everything we read, hear, and watch in the news, aviation or not: NarrativeIt’s a simple word, and it’s defined by (Dictionary.com): a representation of a particular situation or process in such a way as to reflect or conform to an overarching set of aims or values. But the implications of it are huge. It’s part of the entire brand of a news outlet. And, if you ask me, or anybody really, it often gets taken too far. To the point that things are straight up twisted to make a story pan out a certain way. And then twisted a little further to get more re-tweets… 21st Century Aerospace Communicators GroupBari Weiss resignation letterHas Twitter ruined Journalism?PlaneEnglish ATC Simulator - Get 10% off with code: deltaSupport: https://www.patreon.com/podcastingonaplaneBuy me a coffee: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/BravoGolfInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/podcastingonaplane/Twitter: podcastonaplaneWebsite: www.podcastingonaplane.com Music by: Danijel Zambo Make sure to use good equipment!Bose Headset: https://amzn.to/2FFaKjNBose ProFlight: https://amzn.to/2VZAJrPLightspeed Sierra Headset: https://amzn.to/2suAqYALightspeed Zulu 3 Headset: https://amzn.to/2RPGg5i   David Clark: https://amzn.to/2FE3y7r   #aviation #aviationphotography #flying #atc #airtrafficcontrol #airtrafficcontrolpodcast #aviationpodcast #aopa #whywefly #foreflight #erau #purdue #avgeek #instaaviation #avgeekery #pilotlife  #audioengineer #podcastingonaplane
In flying, I think everybody more or less falls into two camps. Camp 1: Those that are there for adventure, and Camp 2: those who aren’t. Some people crave a little uncertainty, and the others want to use their OCD to avoid anything of the sort.Today’s guest, quote/unquote “Baller Pilot” Deanna Wallace is really going to put the World In Air World, because she’s seen a great deal of it, for better or for worse, from the best vantage point there is... a sketchy turboprop you just picked up that needs to get somewhere fast.Ok, so maybe it’s not the absolute best way to see the world, but that’s just my Camp 2 narrative talking.Deanna, well, she lives firmly in camp one, and I think that’s pretty cool, and by the end of today, I think you will too. Especially after she shares one of the best “how I got into flying” stories I’ve heard. And it’s shares more than a little bit with my own. Plus, there’s the whole line guy foot fetish story ….. so yeah… Follow Deanna: https://www.instagram.com/thegirlpilot/Casey AviationDeanna on InTheHangar  PlaneEnglish ATC Simulator - Get 10% off with code: deltaSupport: https://www.patreon.com/podcastingonaplaneBuy me a coffee: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/BravoGolfInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/podcastingonaplane/Twitter: podcastonaplaneWebsite: www.podcastingonaplane.com  Music by: Danijel Zambo Make sure to use good equipment!Bose Headset: https://amzn.to/2FFaKjNBose ProFlight: https://amzn.to/2VZAJrPLightspeed Sierra Headset: https://amzn.to/2suAqYALightspeed Zulu 3 Headset: https://amzn.to/2RPGg5i   David Clark: https://amzn.to/2FE3y7r 
It’s been almost a year and a half since the Atlas crash, and that’s about how long it takes the NTSB to complete a formal investigation, and to issue a Probable Cause statement. And boy did they ever…The idea that a 767 could just fall out of the sky vertically, with no warning, was weird enough to suggest that this wouldn’t be a typical case, but now that the truth is out, the weirdness doesn’t disappoint.There’s a great article out there from Rob Mark, at FLYING Magazine, and there’s a link in the show notes, just in case you missed it. But today Rob’s here, in the flesh, and we have a pretty cool talk for you. And it’s about more than just what happened, it’s about why it happened, and whether or not we can even prevent something like this from happening in the future.And I sure hope we can. But as you’ll hear, it’ll take a lot more than just a few tweaks in the training Department…From Rob's Article:The NTSB issued six new safety recommendations following the investigation into the Atlas Air 3591 accident. The NTSB said the FAA should issue a safety alert for all Boeing 757/767 operators warning of the possibility of an inadvertent go-around activation when the pilot flying is in close proximity to the speed brake handle. The NTSB also wants to see the vulnerabilities of the current pilot record system that would include the results of all pilot training once it begins, regardless of the result and that the system be easily searchable by pilot certificate number. The Board reiterated its call for advanced cockpit video recorder systems for Part 121/135 aircraft.On the human side of the equation, the NTSB reiterated to the FAA the urgent need to “require all Part 121 and 135 air carriers to obtain any notices of disapproval for flight checks for certificates and ratings for all pilot applicants and evaluate this information before making a hiring decision. To also require Part 121, 135, and 91K operators to document and retain electronic and/or paper records of pilot training and checking events in sufficient detail so the the carrier and its principal operations inspector can fully assess a pilot’s entire training performance. The Board also wants to see all training records provided to hiring employers as required under the PRIA and to develop a method of verifying the accuracy of those training records.”I’m sure you’ve got at least one opinion on something you’ve heard today.

Chad and I talked for so long, that when I looked down at the recording at the end, it showed nearly two hours. And I think that’s the best part of aviation. And podcasting too, actually. The idea that we can get all into a bunch of different topics, and go with it for that long, and not only have a great time, but share a ton of useful information too.I’m sure you’ve got at least one opinion on something you’ve heard today.
