Episode 330 Show Notes 

Topic of the show: This week AG and RH discuss IFR departures off of non towered airports near airspace boundaries.  Does it make sense to call the adjacent facility airborne instead of the facility overlying the departure airport?  What is happening on the controller side of the equation with respect to your flight plan?  And what can the pilot do to facilitate a smooth transition from VFR to IFR?  We also discuss flying the Hudson River VFR corridor in a 737, miracle flight plan resurrections, and more of your awesome aviation questions.  This was a really fun episode and you don't want to miss it!
