In this episode we talk with Rob Burgon about his new job flying the 737. We talk about how the aircraft has the overhead panel that brings you back to the 60s when it was designed while the instrument panel features the glass cockpit you’d expect from a modern airliner. We also talk a little about the reality of choosing a plane to fly in a modern airline .
You can find Rob’s book Piano Burning and Other Fighter Pilot Traditions here. We interviewed him about his book in Season 3 Episode 5 of FSRideAlong.
In this episode I announce that I won’t be attending FlightSimCon this year but will be dedicating the donations to attending next year. I also talk FSDreamTeam, P3D4, Aerosoft’s Barcelona and the competition on that airport, IDS KSMF, Bellingham, landings, Taxi2Gate St Louis, my wishlist for next month and my recent activities in the sim. Lastly, I recommend a panel video podcast called On Approach
Despite my success with FSRideAlong and related projects things have hit a sour note. Lots of ego little external validation. My thanks to my Mom, Paige, Aimee, and Meagan for helping me get through the week. You can check out Meagan’s research work here
In this episode I offer my two cents on how to get started in flight sim. I also discuss some feedback and give Karlene Pettit my thanks and gratitude for writing an article in her blog about me!

In this episode a next gen sim gets voted off the show! I spend the rest of the episode talking about the serious sim market and what platform I think PMDG, Aerosoft, A2A, TFDi, and LevelD will use. There is some heavy X Plane 11 talk and a lot of marketing talk that may be good for your next crew rest.
