Spent a pleasant hour in Seat 2c on a Continental Express Beech 1900from MBS to CLE yesterday....
Question: Can pilots pipe "non-flight related" audio into their headphones? (i.e. music, commercial radio)
The BE1900 has no cockpit door (an awesome thing!) and I noticed as we sat comfortably at our crusing level of 17,000(the autopilot readout) the Boss in the left seat was bobbing up and down and finger snapping!
I wondered if he was catching some tunes...but I could also chalk it up to the simple joy of flying. It was a flawlessly perfect flying day over SE Michigan and Lake Erie.
BTW he was the picture of concentration at climbout and during descent and approach....just wondering if during those few minutes in great weather at assigned altitude he was piping in the latest rock & roll!
