Pressure Over The Atlantic w/ Kerry McCauley
Kerry McCauley, an international ferry pilot, now with over 30 years of experience, was flying over the North Atlantic to Paris in a new F33 Bonanza when he discovered an issue with his auxiliary fuel tank. The problem? No ram air—the fuel wasn't moving. The solution? Pressurize the tank via lung power. For eight straight hours McCauley was alone, over the ocean, in a single engine airplane, with only his will keeping him aloft and alive.
