Tired Of Taking Notes From ATC? Let This App Write Them For You

This Is ATSEE -- A Mobile App Still In Its Testing Stages

A running screen behind the booth shows blue and white messages that look like texts on an iPhone, but the content is not a typical text conversation. Instead, it shows radio calls between N116CD and Tampa Tower, running in a dialogue. This is ATSEE, a mobile app still in its testing stages for Apple and Andriod products. Designed specifically for pilots, the app captures the communications coming off of your headset and texts it to you on the app.

Classic Aero-TV: Able Flt's Leslie Irby--Air Is The Only Place Free of Prejudice

From 2019 (YouTube Version): Able Flight Welcomes New Pilots At AirVenture

After seven weeks of intensive flight training and ground school, seven 2019 Able Flight scholarship recipients are now licensed pilots. Six trained at Purdue University and one at The Ohio State University, and they were honored at Able Flight’s annual Wings Pinning Ceremony at EAA AirVenture 2019. Among them is Leslie Irby, who lives in Georgia and was paralyzed in an auto accident in 2013. She told Aero-News that was inspired to learn to fly after learning the story of Bessie Coleman, who was the first woman of African-American descent, and the first of Native American descent, to hold a pilot license. Coleman achieved her international pilot license in 1921.

IFALPA Calls on Albania to Adhere to Free 3 Controllers

'The Release Of The Detained Controllers Would Be A Commendable Gesture'

The International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA) is extremely concerned with the latest developments of the situation involving Air Traffic Controllers in Albania. The International Convention on Civil Aviation prohibits an air traffic controller from exercising the privileges of their licences and related ratings at any time when they are aware of any decrease in their medical fitness which might render them unable to safely and correctly perform these privileges. It is considered unsafe to have a person perform air traffic control that is physically or mentally impaired in any way, or unqualified and untrained for the position.
