AvTalk Episode 39: A Broken Flux Capacitator

On this episode of AvTalk, we spend as little amount of time talking about Post Malone as possible. We find out that some aircraft are equipped with a ‘flux capacitator’. And Chris Sloan, the managing editor of Airways Magazine, joins us to discuss what he’s learned from interviewing leaders at Delta, United, and JetBlue this month.

Last week rapper Post Malone’s Gulfstream IV suffered burst tires on the left main landing gear on departure from Teterboro. The aircraft burned fuel for a few hours before diverting to Stewart Airport in New York. We remark on how unremarkable the flight was.
