Learning to Fly...Together

The Learning to Fly....Together Podcast

Come on into the hangar, make yourself comfortable and follow the saga as two totally opposite types of personalities teach each other to fly. Rob is a certified flight instructor and airline captain for a major airline. Tina is the anxious but eager student pilot who has a few things to teach Rob about getting a clue. Both have been married to each other for 23 years and are still learning to live together, love together, grow together and raise their four kids together. So come on in pull up a chair, get your favorite beverage and lets educate one another. Oh, we have a bird problem here in the hangar so watch your head. They sometimes crap on the airplane and life, but you just wipe it off, move on and don't forget to laugh about it.

It's all about choice here at the Learning to Fly...Together Podcast.   As mentioned from the beginning of the podcast we are starting a seperate feed for the Lesson episodes.   This gives you the listener the choice to what content you would like to listen to.

Our original feed, Learning to Fly...Together will cover the stories, events, segments and topics of interest to families, couples, kids, ham radio operators, parents and aviation fans as it pertains to what our family is learning about life.

The new feed, Learning to Fly...The Lessons, will be for the listener that has a more intense interest in flying or learning to fly.  These episodes will cover the actual ground and flight lessons that Rob gives to his wife Tina and his kids.  This feed is for entertainment and self improvement only.  It is not intended to be a substitute for a course of instruction about flying.

We hope that you subscribe to both feeds.  Having both feeds let's you the listener select the content you want, when you want.  This webpage, www.learningtoflytogether.com, will continue to the be the blog for shownotes for both feeds.  The Lessons Feed was submitted to iTunes and should be available soon and should show up next to the Learning to Fly...Together Podcast.

To subscribe to the feeds, use the RSS and iTunes badges along the side panel to the right or you can use the following links:

The proposed release schedule for the Learning to Fly...Together Podcast will be weekly.  The proposed release schedule for The Lessons Feed will be as the lesson happen here at the Eaglerock Hangar.

Rob is feeling under the weather so no flying or podcasting today.  Hopefuly tomorrow we can record the next lessons episode and go over more of the pre-solo review for Tina and Aileron.

Rob is resting and working on his laptop and just started his personal blog.  If your are interested in his blog covering other topics not covered in the podcast take a look at RF Radiation. If you would like to subcribe to RF Radiation the RSS feed is http://rflog.wordpress.com/feed.

Untill tomorrow.....

Rob just completed a week of recurrent ground school and simulator so he is good for another year.  He is now leaving today for a 3 day Mexico City trip after being home for a day.  No time for any lessons for Tina or Aileron so there wasn't any time for posting the next lessons podcast either.  Rob will be back mid week so we will be able to post the next lessons podcast likely on Wednesday.  If you have any questions, comments, feedback or suggestions for what you what like us to cover on the podcast, use the contact info below to get ahold of us.   Until mid week....

Episode 2 of our Podcast.  This episode is focused more on an actual lesson that I presented to Tina and Aileron in preparation for solo.

For now we plan to have our odd number episodes cover the more social, family and relational topics and should be more entertaining as it relates to Learning to Fly, Love, Live and Parent together.   The even episodes such as this one,  will cover more of the technical aspects of learning to fly and will be segments of our acutal flight and ground lessons here at the Eaglerock Hangar.
