How do you record ATC / radio dialogue using a GoPro? Is the audio recorder separately?

Thanks in advance,

I popped back to the site of my first solo landaway, with a trip from Sywell to Retford-Gamston. I also managed to get a zone transit through East Midlands airspace, along the VFR lane. As the 'field' where I learnt at, it seemed strange to cross the runway extended centreline!

Just as a joined Gamston's overhead, another Cessna 172 joined, with the same abbreviated callsign, this surprised the controller as much as everyone else!

I've overlaid the track of both flights from SkyDemon onto the video, enjoy

You can buy a cable which sits between the GoPro and the headset. About Ł30 on Amazon etc. I haven't found a way to record the engine sound and the R/T so it's either or.

Or you can buy a 3.5mm adapter from GoPro and then tuck an iPhone mic in a headset earcup.

On a recent trip from Sywell to Gloucestershire airport (first visit!), I decided to do a bit of sightseeing around southwest Wales, between the Severn and the Brecon Beacons - have a look in the second video!

Gloucestershire cleared me for a straight in approach... personally I don't like these! It also felt a bit concerning having to fly over Cheltenham at relatively low level, without an awful lot of options. Still, an interesting airport to visit and a nice tour of South Wales - would have ventured over the Brecons more if the cloud was higher!


Return (via Wales!):

Weybourne airfield - Bank Holiday Monday

Had a beautiful flight down the Norfolk coast on BH Monday, conditions were good for a rare landing on Weybourne R34, and I even had my camera running

So grateful for this view

"December is an unfavourable month for longer visual (VFR) cross-country flights. THere are only 8 and a half daylight hours, meaning dark hours are nearly twice longer. The air is still humid, VFR flights are made impossible or unsafe by fog or freezing fog during anticyclones, strong winds or snow/icy rain in fronts. After several cancellations however, the meteorological, technical and human conditions were right for such a cross-country flight and I took the chance. Due to the early sunset I had to request extended opening hours and runway lighting at my destination aerodrome. During the arrival, the onboard camera took beautiful night shots. "

Seasons Greetings! I've not done many landaways recently, so here's a recent video of a local flight hopping around some of the many disused airfields in the Midlands, departing from and returning to Sywell Aerodrome. Perks of flying at this time of year have to be flying around sunset!

As a side note, Runway 05 at Sywell is really difficult to see on final when the white marks have all been washed away!

My SEP CR expired a bit over a year ago. No problem. I'm glider and FAA ASEL and IFR current, so flying regularly. However, it may be silly, but I like it on those occasions when all of my various bits of paper are all current/legal. EASA permits expanding an aerobatic rating from a glider to airplane or vice versa with three training flights. This video is from the third of those three flights. It's a compilation of three cameras' video edited down to a short and I hope pleasant video:

Not sure if a head-mounted camera is a good idea, or....
