Shea Oakley Request:
If you are a currently flying or retired airline pilot, the
museum wants you! Our Open Cockpit Weekend program will be starting up again in
April, with five additional events scheduled through November. These Saturday
and Sunday programs involve opening the cockpits of some of our static display
aircraft (including two airliners) to the public. We get many, many children at
these events and we would love to have some uniformed commercial pilots present
to act as cockpit guides/docents and get these kids excited about a future in
If you have any interest in volunteering to be a part of Open Cockpit Weekends in this capacity please contact the museum at [email protected] or call us at (201)-288-6344.
Great Testimonial Received

“The History of Airline Regulation: USPO, CAA, FAA, CAB, and DOT”
- USPO: Reliability of the US mail system was being put at risk by delays, cancellations, and crashes. The passing of airmail carrying from the USPS' Air Mail Service to private enterprise caused the government to realize the need of structure in the aviation industry.
- The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is responsible for the regulation of aviation safety in the UK, determining policy for the use of airspace, the economic regulation of Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports, the licensing and financial fitness of airlines and the management of the ATOL financial protection scheme for holidaymakers.
- Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the U. S. is a national authority with powers to regulate all aspects of civil aviation.
- The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) is a federal Cabinet of the U.S. government established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, and began operation on April 1, 1967.
- The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) was an agency of the federal government of the United States that regulated aviation services, including scheduled passenger airline service, and provided air accident investigation.
- The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Airport Security Rules is an agency of the Department of Homeland Security responsible for screening people and property and control airport security. They also are responsible for air safety and hire Federal Air Marshals who monitor security on board planes.

“Aviation World Records for Speed and Time”
exciting topic is scheduled for our next EAL Radio Show on February 5, 2018 and
Neal has chosen a fun program to present; “Aviation World Records for Speed and
Time.” This program will keep our thinking caps sharp, and is geared to all of
you flying buffs” out there that love “aerodynamic racing” in both speed and
time world records. Aircraft engineers may have
used all kinds of materials…aluminum, magnesium etc. long ago looking for the fastest
performance and time out of an aircraft. Today, of course, it’s all about the
latest products that aeronautical engineers devise i.e., special materials to
make steel magnesium alloys or perhaps the use of composite materials of some
Engine equipment today is being constructed for the best technology methods to obtain increasing power out of an aircraft. Consideration is given to install the maximum speed an aircraft will tolerate using jet engines that are being constructed to get a special “boost” or otherwise known as an “afterburner.” Electronics play a large part in the world today with all types of computerized equipment that are progressing rapidly for speed while reducing time dramatically. This focus is specifically in the areas needed to produce World records.
Some questions we ask are:
- Are there many types of classes of aircraft, i.e., landplanes, seaplanes, helicopters, and amphibians?
- What about the engine power such as, piston-engines, turbojets, turboprops, and rocket-engine aircraft.
- What is the highest airspeed and time attained by an aircraft of a particular class?
- Who makes the rules for all official aviation records? Are they defined by Federation Aéronautique Internationale (FAI)
Join in the fun by calling 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET to participate with the hosts as we depart the gate. Hear the answers to these questions and more, and feel free to jump in with your question(s) on February 5, 2018.

“Fifteen Most Admired
Eastern Airlines Employees”
Our next EAL Radio Show on February 12,
2018, Episode 351 has a very interesting topic that Neal and our Hosts will present;
“Fifteen Most Admired Eastern Airlines Employees”. Neal provides us with insights on those
“admired noteworthy people.”
Plan to spend an enjoyable evening with us to find out who we have placed on our list. Hear their awesome stories that tells us why we feel they are thought so well of by all. You may wonder what makes a person admired, elevated to a higher step on the success ladder, outstanding, awesome and so much more. Some unique characteristics that play a large part of admiration could be an individual’s achievement:
- Technology contributed to Eastern’s legacy of aviation
- True lifetime achievement
- Individual acts of great vision
- Persistence, Skill, Courage and so on.
know too well that EAL had many remarkable employees that never made the Hall
of Fame or labeled a hero, but yet are so admired. In saying that though, there
are many admired and extraordinary EAL employees on the list that did have a measurable background, some even in the Hall of Fame, while others were just
plainly loved by many.
Listen to the EAL Radio Show and join the conversation on February 12, 2018. Bring along some of your own thoughts to add to our program.

Break Search For MH370
By Myron Nelson, AVweb
The government of Malaysia has announced that it has signed a unique agreement with a U.S. oceanic research company to resume the search for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, which mysteriously disappeared in March of 2014. The private company, Ocean Infinity, based in Texas, has signed a speculative “no-find, no-fee” contract for 90 days that has the potential to reward the research company up to $70 million on a graduated fee scale based upon search results and the amount of area covered within the allotted time. The search will focus on an area in the Southern Indian Ocean approximately the size of Vermont that experts have narrowed down as having the best chances for success. http://www.ealradioshow.com/newsletters-jan-june-2018

A Virgin America A320 family aircraft was on Runway 28L awaiting takeoff at the time of the incident, the Federal Aviation Administration confirms. The incident happened at about 11:45, says the FAA.

First U.S. Flight Demo For
By Mary Grady
Volocopter, the German company that has long been working to develop a semi-autonomous VTOL, flew its aircraft for the first time in the U.S., on Monday. The aircraft flew briefly, unmanned and tethered, on a stage during the keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Volocopter also announced it had flown with a passenger for the first time last month, taking Intel CEO Brian Krzanich for a short flight inside a hangar in Germany. The aircraft was remotely piloted while Krzanich went along for the ride. “That was the best flight I’ve ever had,” Krzanich said after landing. “Everybody will fly like this someday.” See more…Newsletters-Jan-June-2018.
Engine Start For That's All Brother
By Russ Niles
(See Video below)
A piece of aviation history roared to
life for the first time in a decade last week in an important milestone toward
first flight. Crews at Basler Turbo Conversions in Oshkosh started the No. 1
engine in That’s All Brother, the C-47 that led 800 other aircraft in the
invasion of Normandy on D-Day. The plan is to fly the thoroughly restored
warhorse to France for a flyby on the 75th anniversary of the epic battle in
2019. “That’s kind of why the rush is on and why we’re doing all of this in the
dead of winter in Wisconsin,” Keegan Chetwynd, curator of the Commemorative Air
Force, told The Associated Press. The engine start revealed a hydraulic leak that
will be fixed before another prop is turned. See more of the article...http://www.ealradioshow.com/newsletter-aug-dec-2017
