Nice! Thanks for sharing.

Hopefully this motivates more to share their videos.

1. I appreciate the voice overlay. Makes me realize how terrible I still sound (especially with a thick Afrikaans accent).

2. Makes me realize just how bad Rand's ATC speaks. FACT speaks much clearer.

3. How did you overlay the Garmin thingy, or is that part of a Garmin camera's functions?

FACT is such a nice airport to fly out. Easy layout, beautiful scenery and patient ATC’s :D

Some was shot with a GoPro (footage with the audio clips) rest was shot with a Garmin Virb 360, this allows you to choose overlays in post production, as well as angles, very cool little camera

This is an awesome video.

I was wondering, how did you record the sound of the ATC and stuff?

I know, after 20 years of saying it I guess the only way to get me not to refer to it is to give me a different routing :lol:

I use this system to connect my Gopro into the headset audio, works brilliantly, you can order it from a store in the US mypilotstore.com

Everyone know what you mean. Generally "Athlone Power Station" or even "old power station" these days.
