On episode 57 of Squawk Ident we celebrate a remarkable milestone. This episode marks the one year pod-aversary of the Squawk Ident Podcast. Here to help me in hosting the show today, our very own Squawk Ident co-host, Captain Roger. Also, joining in on the conversations is a special guest that we had on the show for episode 52 - Race, Fly, Build. Here to update us on his progress with the fabrication of his Lancair Legacy, we welcome back to the show Mr. Jon Gruber. Together, we catch up with Jon’s progress with his Legacy build progress. We also navigate some of the common issues with reliance on the magenta line also known as automation dependancy. We communicate topics from the flight line and the subtle social media wars happening within many pilot groups.
