Hi Keith and all,
I regualrly check in to this site and everyone really helped me get through my long haul flights late last year from Melbourne to Europe. I saw on the news telecast tonight (in Melbourne) there was a change in safety checks from australias civil aviation authority CASA. I found this interesting and read that it is due to new planes not needing as many checks, which makes sense to me.
I found some interesting info on the CASA website about turbulence - in my experience turbulence can be scary when you don't know what it is and Keith your pod casts and book have really helped to normalize this for me. it's uncomfortable but not dangerous!!
Yet, the information I found on the CASA website has amazed me
I thought Keith you might be able to comment on this? I didn't think there was such a thing as an air pocket? And nowhere do they reassure you that it's not dangerous, so I found this very interesting! This is a government website too
