Well, I rarely listen to music when I'm flying (and when I do, I'll usually just put my iPod on shuffle)

But after landing, I love to listen to The Rescue Blues by Ryan Adams, it's just a very nice, easyflowing song that kind of has a sense of relief, and a feeling of accomplishment in it.

Listen to it! (Make sure you listen to the fourth one down, the others are live performances)

Thanks to David Malinowski ^^

Ahh! This was over at the POSKY forums and it got sooooo tedious! :twisted:

I don't listen to anything, occasionally I might listen to the radio...

Heavy metal, especially by the JT8Ds or the CFM56s. Sometimes light metal by the PT6As or the CF34s. But occasionally, if I had enough, I like to listen to some easy-going music, like Wind, so I'll turn off the metal :wink:

I would say.... Pantera, Slayer, some classics like ACDC, Led Z!!! Ummm....and when I'm not on a fast pace heavy metal rush I listen the top 20 hits. But since I fly on vatsim, i gotta keep it low when talking to ATC as they'll hear lots of profanity in the background while I'm reading back instructions. lolz. :twisted:

Sade by Kenny G
Good choice! Another Jazz fan, I see....

I usually play instrumental jazz quietly through the Cirrus' intercom. But it can't be slow, it's gotta be upbeat (Like Sade), so the students don't fall asleep.

I've turned two of my students into huge jazz fans, one of them is more into jazz than I am now! 8)

Thanks Brandon! The reason why I am a jazz fan is really because I play the saxophone myself. I play concert band alto, jazz alto, and I'm in a pit orchestra!

I used to play the alto as well. Good times, good times :)

I want to get back into it.

And learn the piano.

And learn Spanish.

And Arabic.

And the Guitar.

And get my ATP.

And get better on my bike.

Wow... not enough time in the year! :laugh:

I'm talking about both really. I plan on taking my first real world flight later this year in a Cirrus SR-22! I'll be sure to bring my signed Kenny G CD with me.

You'll have a blast in the 22, it's just loud as hell... (Loudest piston aircraft I've been in by far, and I've been in a LOT). The music system is amazing, though!

I'm more into Nick's style of music: Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, RHCP, Pink Floyd, Muse etc. However, I don't usually listen to music when I fly, just the soundtrack of the engines.

Aircraft have CD players?
Even better- an input for a line-in cord. The same thing you'd use to plug your ipod to a car stereo system. Not all aircraft have it, but most new ones do.

The best part- it goes into your headsets, and you can have different music in the back seat if they plug in an ipod as well. And, it automatically cuts out with an incoming or outgoing radio transmission... :)
