How-to record realistic GoPro audio in loud aircraft cockpits

Recording realistic audio on your GoPro in a loud aircraft cockpit can be challenging.  The problem is that the camera either records with the built in mic and the engine sound is so much louder than your voice that you only hear engine sound.  Or you plug your GoPro into the aircraft intercom,and all the GoPro records is the audio on the intercom system, and you hear no engine sound at all.  In your headset however, your ears hear both the intercom audio and the engine sound that is muffled by the headset.  To get audio on your video that sounds like what you heard thru your headset you have to record the intercom audio on your GoPro and then record the engine sound separately, either with a second GoPro, or record the engine sound at another time.  When you edit your video you use the engine sound as a second sound track, adjusting the volume until the “mixed” sounds realistic. This video shows you how it’s done.

"Mercenary with a Camera"

Dan started a photography business at 13.  After a winter day that was 18 degrees below zero, he went on vacation to the Florida Keys to warm up, and stayed for 28 years.  He was financially free at 38 and retired. He met a cute blond and fell in lust.  She fell in love (with his stuff),  and they spent money like drunken sailors.  When the money ran out, she ran out, (with her cocaine dealer).  Dan and his camera went back to work, and he retired a second time 48 months later, at age 44.  Then he did everything on his bucket list (except for seeing the Northern Lights).  Then he was bored and went looking for something to do with his time, so he built two airplanes.  After the planes were done he got bored again, so he started this blog, to show you how to communicate with video in today’s world, and become financially free in only a few short years, just like he did.
