I’m Arun Ganesh, grew up in the Middle East, became an engineer in Chennai and now studying Information Design at NID Bangalore. I usually run around the internet under the guise of PlaneMad, a name that was bestowed upon me in an aviation forum sometime in 2003. That was the time when I was exploring my fascination with aviation using Microsoft Flight Simulator and creating addons for it in the form of repaints of Indian aircraft, airport scenery and even modeling aircrafts using max.
If thats not enough plane madness to convince you, I later hacked my FM radio receiver to listen to ATC frequencies figuring that theoretically it cant be too hard since the bands lie close to the fm radio band, and it wasnt. It freaked out my dad a bit too much when he actually heard the pilot through the radio and that I wasn’t joking. I had decided that an Air Traffic Controller was what I wanted to be, it seemed like fun at that time to order pilots around in the skies. Electronics and Communication Engineering was what I needed to study and that what brought me back to my homeland after living 18 years in Abu Dhabi.
