If you have a question you'd like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

136 Max flew 75 hours in the Vision Jet in the past five weeks, and he talks about those experiences, including landing at Chicago O’Hare. He also talks about a complicated IFR departure from Brackett Field that felt like it was from the 1950s, and he argues for updating some Obstacle Departure Procedures to make them easier to fly with new modern RNAV capable glass cockpits.
