We have been found on Kinglake Ranges Radio, Seymour FM and Yass FM.

Joining with Aus Air Services for Christmas

Teaming up with Aus Air Services to combine our Christmas Party efforts
We teamed up with Aus Air Services at Tooradin Airport to combine our respective Christmas Parties on December 17th. The skies were clear and the conditions were great for flying, resulting in a good turn out of PCDU listeners, local pilots and visitors.

In addition to the mobile studio, we also recorded with a number of live guests, demonstrated a UAV camera system and broadcast audio from an aerobatic flight.

 

All up it was a great success and a wonderful example of using Southern Skies Online Media’s remote broadcast crew & equipment to enhance an aviation event.

We’ve got a Mobile Studio

In addition to our usual in-house studio, we’ve set up a mobile studio that lets our team produce our content while out in the real world. We can record a show, provide a live PA and even stream it all onto the Internet while onsite at events.

The PA system can run from a couple of small speakers in a hangar to a full airshow flight line and our equipment lets us record with multiple guests as well as play pre-recorded content.

 

If you’d like to have us attend your next aviation event, call Grant on 0422 914 949 or email us at contact@planecrazydownunder.com

We are pleased to announce that James Williams & Dave Gray from the LifeStyle PodNetwork have invited the Plane Crazy Down Under podcast to join Australia’s global podcast network. We’re very excited as this will allow us to further increase our involvement in the podcasting community, a very important part of the work that we’re doing at Southern Skies Online Media.

Flying Down Under also gets its own site

As we did with the Australia Desk segment, we have created a web site for the Flying Down Under segment that we produce fortnightly for the FlightTime Radio show.

The site provides an archive of these segments and allow quick reference for people wanting to check out our work. You can find the archive at:
