Small plane crash number 4 in WI this month, that I know of. Pilot dead, Oconto county, town of Maple Leaf. 10-27-21. There are no reports on any of these 4 crashes of cause. I do know they are not weather related and that this is very unusual. Heck, even during EAA when we have half a million planes visit us we only get one or two air show related crashes.
Authorities say there were two jets escorting the aircraft, and the people on the jets saw the plane fly too low before losing visual contact of the aircraft.

Listener Forum / KATL Tower feed?
« Last post by gbg on October 26, 2021, 03:53:00 PM »

The feed for KATL tower (and a few others at KATL) seem to have been down for about 2 weeks... is there any idea when they're likely to be up again?

I'm a bit backwards with technology, so please forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere, but the search feature did not seem to show anything.

Thanks for this awesome resource and site!!

literally in my backyard, but that will be a few years.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — As Brightline expands its highspeed rail service from South Florida to Orlando, there could be an even faster way to get around the state.

With a range of about 150 miles and top speeds around 175 miles per hour, the German-based Lilium Jet could find a home at a series of Florida’s airports, including Palm Beach International Airport.

Recently, the Palm Beach County commissioners approved a lease for about a 5-acre vacant portion of PBIA for Spanish company Ferrovial to build what’s known as a vertiport and a terminal, costing $7 million.

County mayor, Dave Kerner, a pilot himself says, it would be affordable for everyday Floridians, while saving time.

“It would really cut down on other regions of the state. Like Ft. Myers for example, Tampa, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami. You’re not going to fly to New York City in this, you’re not going to fly to Los Angeles, but to get around our very long and very large state, it could be a gamechanger,” Kerner said in an interview Monday with CBS12 News.

The six passenger jets take off like a helicopter and fly like a traditional plane, all powered with 36 all electric engines.
There are a host of contingencies in the lease that could force the deal to fall through.

The jet itself still needs approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly in the United States.

But this could be the beginning of a new era in travel.

“What we think of right now of something that could only be used as regionally, I hope to see that here as soon as possible, but I would expect this technology to bring us much further than that in the next decade as well,” Kerner said. “Ultimately I see a use and a purpose for this far beyond the fences of the airport.”

In time, theoretically you wouldn’t even need an airport since these jets take off and land vertically. So, they could take you straight to the Dolphins game or to work. While timelines vary, it could be 6-7 years before it’s available in Palm Beach County.

The threshold at KPAO has remained relocated for a long time. Does anyone know the reason? Thanks.
Listener Forum / Sluggish Win10 App

Hi Dave:
I've been using LiveATC on my Android cell phone for quite some time.
I just purchased and installed the Windows 10 App.
Comparing Apples to Apples, both platforms are using my Ethernet WAN connection.
The Android App is much faster than the Windows 10 App
The Windows 10 App takes longer to connect (20 seconds), buffers, and is behind in streaming, lagging well over a minute from the Android App's stream.
I have no issues on my PC with other Apps that I'm aware of.
Any thoughts on how to debug this or tweak things to improve latency issues?
Listener Forum / Re: Geneva frequencies missing
« Last post by thowe on October 23, 2021, 04:23:09 AM »
It is done! After a long absence, the first frequencies from Geneva (GVA / LSGG) are back on

These are mainly frequencies which can be received well from a distance: Arrival, Departure, Radar Initial Low Level and all Radar Upper Levels. The ATIS is also available.

Local frequencies like Tower, Ground, Apron etc. cannot be covered from a distance and will hopefully follow later - we are preparing with an enthusiast from the Geneva region.

As a good start I would recommend the LSGG Arrival. It's exciting to hear how the airliners are approached and separated to the ILS Localizer. On FlightAware or another online radar service, you can track the position of the airliners and see how they are lined up on the ILS.

Have fun with the LSGG frequencies, which have their own special charm. For example, part of the communication is in French, part in English.
