Left for a 3 day trip today so there won't be any flying out of the Eaglerock Hangar until Monday. Tina and Aileron will be studying up for Pre-Solo Test this weekend so that I can issue the knowledge test next week. That way we can have the freedom to solo them when there ready in the next week or so. Trying to balance, work, kids, school, and flying is such tiring work..... Will post a lesson podcast when I get back. You will be able to hear the preflight briefing and inflight chatter of stalls. Aileron and I did spins yesterday. Let us know what interests you and what you want to hear about. Rob www.learningtoflytogether.com firstname.lastname@example.org (206) 984-2359

This is a short episode recorded to explain and test a seperate feed. If it works there should be a seperate feed for "The Lessons". As explained in the first episode and show notes, when Rob is actually teaching Tina a ground lesson, that lesson will be posted as a seperate feed. This way those not interested in "lesson content" don't have to listen on the main feed. For those who just want the lesson content, they can download and subscibe to The Lessons.
We will see how this works. We are unfamiliar with how our podcasting host works split feeds. So if it doesn't work right away then you at least know what we are trying to accomplish. Please be patient.
Now that we have our feet wet, will get on with reporting the story and get some flying done.

Well Here it Goes!
This is our first episode and serves as a introduction of the Learning to Fly Together Podcast. In this episode we introduce ourselves and try to describe the vision and purpose of launching the podcast. Like all new endeavours it may be a little rough around the edges but we had fun doing it and hope you have fun listening.
We don't know of any couples who have taken on teaching a spouse to fly and lived to tell about it so we are going to tell the story as it happens (incase we don't live to tell about it). We will let you know about all and will have fun doing it.
When the podcast gets technical, as Rob teaches the actual meat of learning to fly, will will split the feed and run a concurrent "lesson" type of podcast. We will do the same for episodes when we talk about the technical aspects of ham radio and computers. This way the listeners who want the "human story" and more entertaining part of our experience, don't have to listen to the overly technical sessions. For those who will be interested in the technical episodes we will give you the feed details for those specific episodes as they occur.
Let us know what you think and we look forward to getting to know you. Contact us by leaving comments here or e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also leave a voicemail message at 206-984-2359 (2FLY).
