Are you going to use it to record conversation between air traffic controller and pilot? @kayakmedic
Some users are just recording it separately since GoPro Max does not support external mic.

The GoPro Max doesn't support external mics for a very simple reason.
To support an external microphone you would have to have that microphone plugged into the GoPro Max USB-C port. This would result in having an object (cable) so close to the camera that stitching issues would be very visible. In short, the picture would look terrible. Most 360 camera users actually want very clean/invisible stitch lines in their footage. Hence the reason external mics are not supported.

In the aircraft I would rather have audio and be able to crop out to cord in editing production. I think this makes the Max a deal killer for a lot of pilots. Seems like it sould be a simple softwear fix to give the option.

Since every single cable and setup would be different it's far from a simple software fix. I just use two camera's in my airplace, a Fusion and a GoPro Hero 6. I have the 6 looking out the window and hooked up to my coms.
