04 – Ercoupe Racing

When most aviation people hear the phrase “Ercoupe Racing”, they may pause, they may chuckle a bit, and they’re usually quite intrigued and want to know more.

William Dubois pilots “Race 53”, the Ercoupe in “Ercoupe Racing”, and he races that Ercoupe in the Sport Air Racing League.

What I think you’re going to find with William’s story is what I find with many aviation stories, that it’s even more interesting than you might initially imagine…

03 – Glenn Curtiss and the Glenn Curtiss Museum

What do the aileron, the “fastest man alive” on a motorcycle, and the P-40 Warhawk have in common?

They all trace back to a fascinating person in aviation history that you may have heard of before, but I wonder if you know how fascinating his story really is.

This episode is about Glenn Curtiss and the Glenn Curtiss museum.

02 – Soaring and the National Soaring Museum

Airplanes without engines.  Gliders.  Sailplanes.  Soaring.

There’s a special and historic place in a beautiful part of upstate New York that that you may not heard of before. A place that is VERY special in the “un-powered” world of aviation and, if you like unique and timeless aviation, I think you’ll find this interesting.

This episode is about Soaring…and the National Soaring Museum in Elmira New York.
