Episode 037 | A "chat" with Rob Mark (Flying Magazine, JetWhine) about ATC

Today on the Show. What happens when a couple of guys with a double sided long view get together and start talking shop about something important to them?

So, a little about Rob. As if you didn’t know, he’s the senior editor at Flying Magazine. You’ve all heard him for years on Airplane Geeks, and on his own JetWhine production at Jetwhine.com

He’s a journalism Alum @Northwestern University, and this is where our story takes a fun turn. I don’t think either one of us knew how much we had in common! 

My Wife went to Northwestern. And I went to Purdue. I flew up there a lot to visit, and I always flew into PWK airport. Now “Chicago Executive” whatever. 

A lot of people don’t know this, but Rob used to be a Controller too

His office is something I’ve probably driven past 100 times in Evanston.

It looks like our careers are following a strikingly similar path so far. 

Him and I have gone back and forth before, and he’s even recorded a piece for this show called “the scariest takeoff I ever made” (Episode 023). 

Cool. But there’s still the matter of this whole “chat” thing. It’s probably time we get that sorted out…
