Guess this is happening as I type.  Not sure what happened yet.  Twitter is lit up with reports, listening to the tower feed but not really hearing anything but seemingly normal chatter.

I'm not sure how I feel about this... I get that he was trying to have a little fun, but at what cost could that come at if it could lead to confusion.

I'm at work and don't have the ability to edit. But take a listen at 17:15 for Flagship 3366. Captured from JFK TWR on 10/17.

125.85 is a back-up for the N90-LGA approach complex...long ago (10+ years) it was used in place of 127.3

Thanks for the info. Checking the archives I see a few weeks ago they switched back to using 124.750 again.

Smedley - sometimes squelch is setup hairline close to the static border, and weather or other local variations can affect background noise, changing where the squelch needs to be set. I re-set the squelch seasonally on my feeds for that reason. It may not have gotten bumped, but good for the feeder to know it needs an adjustment.

I will be donating soon.

I am also appealing to our fellow members to checkout a campaign in Indiegogo:

While in Indiegogo, just search for "Help me Pay for my Private Pilot License Training" created by Vladmir Odhiambo.

Unlike the directional gyro found in trainers and smaller aircraft, the horizontal situation indicator is (almost universally) internally slaved to a compass so it will not precess and does not need to be adjusted as part of the runup and unless malfunctioning will not be incorrect.  It should be checked sometime during the taxi and when taking the runway to make sure it indicates runway heading, as should the directional gyro.  When taking the runway a mismatch ordinarily is the clue that you are on the wrong runway.

In case anyone else is confused, both DGs and HSIs are set up so that if you are supposed to turn to a heading, you find the heading on the face of the instrument and turn in that direction.  The number of degrees that you need to turn can be read directly off the instrument.

I cant help but feel for the pilot
Eh... yes and no. Mostly no.

Obviously I wasn't in the cockpit and don't know what the HSI was showing, but given the other tools available (magnetic compass, runway signs, runway markings on pavement), it seems difficult for someone with a PPL or more to be unable to determine the runway direction not once but twice.

Would I trust and expect safe operations near this pilot when it comes to topics like traffic pattern directions, right-of-way, standard hold directions, etc.? Yes and no. Mostly no.

I initially couldn't believe what I was hearing.  After I went back and listened a couple times, I cant help but feel for the pilot, and kudos to the tower controller for keeping his cool and staying professional.  Edited the clip down a bit.

I'm currently a COM student but I've always had a love for aviation. When I was a kid I was fortunate enough to participate in the Wright Flight program in Tucson. At the end of the program we got to sit in the co-pilot seat of a Cessna and fly from TUS on tiny hops to various rural airports. Typically they took two kids in one plane, one flying out and the other in. Lucky for me (but unlucky for my classmate) the other kid on my flight got sick and didn't want to sit up front on the way back so I got to be up front both ways! It was super cool and definitely cemented my love of flying. I even had dreams of going into the air force after high school, but health complications sort of "grounded" me as it were. I still like to tinker around in flight sims though!

I recently got the iPhone 6 and I was wondering if there were any plans to update the app so it didn't look so "blown up" on the bigger screen? It's not a big deal, the app still works great, just a general question I was wondering about.
