Summary
112 Max talks about the Aviation News Talk meetup that will be held at the AOPA Regional Flyin at Livermore, CA. The meetup with listeners will be from 5-6 PM on Friday, June 21, 2019 at the Starbucks located at the corner of Airway Blvd, which is the road that leads to the airport, and Kitty Hawk street. This is not a dinner, just a casual stop by, have a cup of tea or coffee and say hello. No need to RSVP, just show up.

Max will also be giving two presentations at the show. The first one is free. It’s at 3 PM on Friday, and it’s his How to Fly the S.F. Bay Tour seminar. Afterwards, S.F. Bay Tour maps will be available for sale for $15.

The second presentation is on Friday, and AOPA has included that as part of their workshop series, for which you do have to pay. The cost is $99 if you’ve registered in advance, and its $120 at the show. That gets you into all of the workshops, on both Friday and Saturday. The workshops run for 3-hours, and you can attend up to four of them. They start at 9 AM and 1 PM on both Friday and Saturday. Max’s workshop is Advanced IFR for modern GPS receivers, and it’s at 9 AM to noon on Saturday morning.

Max also discussed the NOTAMs in effect for the show. If you’re flying in to the show, you should read the NOTAM, as there are many changes from the standard procedures at Livermore.

Summary
Max talks with Benjamin Morgan, Executive Director of AOPA Australia about the state of General Aviation in Australia. Number of Private pilots is declining. AOPA is working to inspire youth. They’ve acquired a bus full of simulators they drive around the country, and is buying low cost Cessna 150s for flight training. GA also faces regulatory challenges with CASA, which regulates all aviation in Australia.

The number of flight instructors have declined, since independent flight instructors haven’t been permitted since a rule change in 1999. After that decision, flight training declined significantly. Smaller flight schools have been unable to survive, and a significant number of the larger flight schools have been bought by China, to train pilots for SE Asia. Much training is done through local Aero Clubs, but many of these no longer have any low cost airplanes for flight training.
