178 Max talks with Rob Mark about Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and how GA pilots can use them. Rob talks about a tragic accident at Bedford, MA in which a Gulfstream crashed on takeoff because the gust lock was in place and the pilots had not followed SOPs. Plus, the Minimum Safe Altitude rule and a question from a student pilot, who plans a career in aviation, on cleaning up a messy logbook.
