The television show The Aviators has begun its third season. It is shown on public broadcast television stations in 20 states. It is also available from a variety of companies, including iTunes, or can be purchased on a DVD if it is not shown in your area.
The series has become a hit on iTunes, ranking with top shows offered, a spokesman for the show said. Officials from AOPA have appeared on it during past seasons.
If the show is not available in your area you can purchase it from a variety of locations including iTunes. Outlets are also listed in the link.
This season features several appearances by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. It also features the student pilot adventures of Vince Neil of the band Mötley Crüe. He took instruction in Las Vegas.
For pilots, the 60,000-plus-member Civil Air Patrol readily comes to mind when an aerial role in a rescue is launched.
AOPA is asking the FAA to withdraw a proposed airworthiness directive that could affect thousands of ECi cylinders.
