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, it’s 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!).
