SMAC078 Obtaining Your Instrument Rating

Episode 078
Victoria kicks us off with a discussion of getting her Instrument Flight Rating and keeping your rating. This leads into a discussion of best practices for training, and how to handle communicating with the tower and keeping track of information. We also discusses Automation Management and the danger of over-relying on automated systems.
Carl brings up a situation where a friend of his flew an aircraft where she was the Captain and her sister was the Co-Pilot, which may be a first in aviation history. Very few people seem to know that there are female pilots in the airlines, and automatically assume that a man always does the flying.
