Captain Kirk, SXSW and Listener Questions – Episode 160
Todd Curtis is just back from exploring the future of air transportation on display at SXSW in Austin, Texas. He and John Goglia talk about newcomers Jove and EVE, electric and hydrogen engines and more. Plus, they answer listener questions.
They highlight aviation safety issues brought by new technology and aviation innovations. They cover everything from cockpit design to countering perceptions created by the Hindenburg crash.
Pilot training, maintenance capabilities, and regulations will all need to evolve as we move toward a time of advanced air mobility.
“New technology will need to meet old rules,” John observes. Innovators will have to work with regulators in addition to solving technical challenges.
Listener questions include flying into clouds, FOIA requests, airport access and more.
