Episode 414

Sunrise at Eastern


The EAL Radio Show presents another great memory on
Monday, May 20 2019 Episode 414

"Sunrise at Eastern" at 7:00 P.M. ET.


Eastern Airlines vast systems of routes made it imperative that all early morning originating flights left on time to their first destination in order to maintain the proper schedules throughout the day. These early morning flights were known as EMO's,  which means Early Morning Originators.


This critical briefing was held at the headquarters in the Systems Control Office in Miami and ensured all aircraft would be on time. That procedure began at 4:00 A.M every day to all EMO stations. Some of these stations were Miami, Atlanta, the 3 in N.Y. Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, St. Louis, LA, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, and San Juan to mention a few. The Systems Control Office houses Dispatchers, Route Planners, Aircraft Maintenance, Crew Scheduling and Customer Service Representatives along with a thorough Weather Department which forecasts weather for Pilots and Dispatchers throughout the day. These are the minds and coordinators of all aircraft routes to be made throughout this 24-hour period.


In addition, Neal will share more History on the book "Sunrise at Eastern" written by one of the former Presidents, Floyd Hall and the memories from this book.

“Memorial Day, A Flight of Honor”


The EAL Radio Show Episode 415 scheduled Monday, May 27, 2019 will honor our military Veterans. Memorial Day celebrations take place to never forget our veterans and we don't. We want to make it a special commemorative event for those Veterans who are still with us, as well as to honor those that have flown to a brighter horizon.


We previously talked of the Honor Flight of The Eastern Airlines Group Inc., 36th Street, Miami that took veterans on an Honor Flight until they too, like our beloved Eastern, had to close, though the Eastern name still flies today via Eastern Airlines Inc. (formerly Swift Air). These take place during different months, with different airlines, and from different parts of the country. The one from Fort Lauderdale/West Palm Beach in Florida is scheduled Saturday, November 19, 2019 with a group of 80 veterans from Southeast Florida and West Palm Bach (PBI).


The history of this Honor Flight to Washington, DC began by Earl Morse, a Physician Assistant and a retired Air Force Captain who co-founded this Network along with Jeff Miller, a small business owner and son of a WWII veteran. Captain Morse pitched his idea to a local Aero Club of 300 private pilots at a local Air Force base, proposing that the pilots would pay for the flights for the veterans to Washington and personally escort them around the city. Eleven volunteered, and the network was formed; by 2005, a board was formed, funds were raised, and volunteers had joined.


We know that most of you in the Eastern Family have great memories of this holiday and what it meant personally to each one of you. Let’s hear your voices tell us more, so please call in at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EDT as we depart the gate, on May 27, 2019 to share some of them.

Episode 416

"The Future of Drone Aviation"


The EAL Radio Show presents another great program that we all are looking forward to hearing Monday evening, June 6, 2019 Episode 416, "The Future of Drone Aviation" at 7:00 P.M. EDT.


There has been the use of Drones for a number of years, though not widely spread as what we now hear.  Drones are used for cargo transporting, in the sky and in the sea for military reconnaissance, flying drones, and drones on land all lead us to believe that this is the future ahead. This method is being used for Military surveillance as we have heard and read that NASA is working on something that makes ordinary drones plane in comparison. One is called the Greased Lightning, a 10-engine electric craft that can hover like a drone and transform into a plane.

Federal Drone Registry (FAA) were involved in forming regulations regarding the use of drones and pointed out the many issues and problems that were going to be caused by this rapidly expanding industry. They too now have a Drone Registration Online and Drones over 55 lbs. require Registry, to legally fly a Drone.

Join us to hear more of our topic on Drones by calling in Monday, June 6, 2019 for Episode 416 at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. EDT as we depart the gate. Listen in by clicking the hyperlink to take you to: www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie.
