So, what are my aviation podcasts about? Well, just listen, it’s “the view from my side of the cockpit door”, I guess the best way to describe it is that I’m here to express my opinion and perspective as a pilot in the commercial airline industry. I am not an aviation journalist. I am not a travel expert. I cannot tell you anything about frequent flyer programs. There are plenty of great blogs and podcasts that cover that (and I’ll let you know which ones I like best). What can I talk about? Weather and how it pertains to my job, piloting, aviation safety (I graduated from the Accident Investigation and Flight Safety School at the University of Southern California/Norton Air Force Base), layovers, etc. I talk about news in the industry, travel-related stuff, incidents and accidents, and more. As I said, just have a listen. I hope you will enjoy the show!Capt. Jeff
New Aviation Podcasts
On this episode, we talk about updated information regarding the Germanwings crash investigation. Looks like many European carriers are adopting the “at least two persons in the cockpit at all times” policy. We also discussed the Air Canada A320 “short landing” at Halifax last week. The inaugural Virgin Atlantic flight from Manchester, UK, to Atlanta, Georgia, did not go as planned after a celebratory water cannon salute went awry. Whoops.
In this episode: The crash of Germanwings 9525 in the French Alps, Ryanair abandons US flight plans, Lufthansa admits an A320 nearly crashed four months ago after some of its outside sensors iced over, more news, and your feedback, of course!
In this episode: United flight turns back after passenger rushes cockpit door, New start-up plans fully autonomous flying car, and a story that, well, a story that really stinks.
