Customer Reviews

A great UK aviation podcast

I’ve really enjoyed this series thus far. Steve explains scenarios and topics in a condensed and easy to comprehend manor. His topics and progression on each episode are logical and thought out. Presentation is clear and concise. As a future PPL holder I’ve particular enjoyed the topics that relate to the steps involved in achieving such a licence. Thanks Steve!

Microlight pilot podcast

Steve does a great job of talking through the many aspects of flying microlights as a new pilot. If you’re doing your NPPL (M), give this a listen.
