Akron and Back Again

Jake flew from BG to Akron today, which is a couple hours of flying in a Piper! I tracked him most of the way, and even pulled up the Live ATC feed from Akron-Canton Airport when he was in the area. I think I managed to catch his calls, but it was hard to tell (there was a bit of an echo on the line).

Aviation tracking is really quite incredible these days. The amount of information available – real time information – is nothing short of incredible.

Jake's flying again tonight…same plane, and same route as this afternoon. And I'm watching again.

How's our new empty-nester lifestyle? Well, Renee and I happily stayed up late tonight to track Jake's second flight to Akron for the day. I put my iPad on the nightstand and split the screen with a flight tracker and the live ATC feed for Akron-Canton airport. Renee heard Jake make radio calls for the first time, which was pretty cool.

And we watched the Lions beat the Chiefs, too, which was fantastic!
