This is a very informative podcast if you have an interest in commercial aviation and what it's like behind the scenes. You will hear from an airline pilot who has more than 30 years of experience and new pilots as well. You will learn what a dispatcher does, what it is like to solo for the first time and what it is like to be a controller. The hosts and guests are intelligent and articulate. And they love flying. Highly recommended. And it is great that the podcast is back after a four month hiatus.
I'm not a pilot but this show is very entertaining for me. Thanks for the awesome podcast :)
Informative flying podcast
Came over from another upgrd.com 'cast and I'm happy the pilot up front get their own podcast to join the flight attendants 'cast. Love hearing the different points of view from inside the aviation industry.
