General Aviation news, interviews, pilot safety tips, and listener questions answered. These clear and concise, “just the facts” podcast audio recordings deliver relevant information for all pilots, and student pilots who want to learn to fly, without the fluff and banter sometimes found in podcasts. The episodes are strictly about General Aviation; when an airline story is discussed, its always in the context of what a GA pilot could learn from an airline-related story or accident.
We also interview aviation leaders who are in the news in our NewsMakers episodes. In some of these episodes, survivors of an aircraft accident or incident share what they learned.
You can find aviation news on lots of web sites. But I bring you a perspective on the news that comes from over forty years as a pilot. In addition to news, on each show I talk in depth about a pilot skill or safety issue. And I spend a lot of time researching information, so you can rely on what you hear. Listeners have given me tons of feedback, and they say they find the show interesting, informative, and chock-full of relevant content and commentary. They like that the show is to the point and doesn't waste their time.
Why I do the Show. I created Aviation News Talk because, while I love being a cohost on the Airplane Geeks podcast, there isn't enough time on that show for me to share all the information I’d like with listeners. And, as I listened to other aviation podcasts, I wasn't finding the kind of general aviation show I was looking for. I teach flying 5-6 days a week, and often after a flight, I think, “I need to share this information with other pilots to help keep them safe.” That's why I started this show...to provide valuable information that might help save a life (and I've already been told by one pilot that something I told her saved her life!).

Ratings and Reviews
Amazing podcast for all aviators
Max, this review is long overdue. I started listening to your podcast earlier this year and have been hooked since. I just recently got my CFI certificate and already know that several episodes will be included within my training syllabus as reference material for my students (the perfect go around, the impossible turn, 20 things your CFI didn’t teach you, accident case studies, etc.). Your depth of knowledge and willingness to share with the community is invaluable. It is clear that safety is always your #1 consideration, and that is also what I intend to teach my future students. Thanks for all you do, I look forward to your next episodes. Antoine - CFI AGI IGI Atlanta, GA
Great For General Aviation Pilots
Max Trescott produces a great podcast with a general aviation emphasis. I am most amazed by how much you can learn about a familiar topic by having Max examine it from a different point of view. For example, even if you talked to a class D tower a 1000 times, do you know how the controllers responsibilities are defined with respect to aircraft separation near a class D airport? Max helped me understand what I did not know about this topic and many others in these podcasts. Trescott is a gifted educator and it shows!
I also want to complement Max for not covering topics like “A380 sales forecasts in Asia” and many topics for those training for jobs at the majors. There are podcasts for that.
Great Interface | Great Content
I've been listening to the podcast since episode 1, and they are a staple for my daily commute. This app has a great interface and makes listening to the podcasts easy. Specifically, the large play button with the ability to scroll through an episode around the play button makes it easy to go back and find bits of wisdom from past episodes. Keep it up, Max!
