Flaps Podcast

Flaps is the Sony Award and New York Award-winning podcast for those who like flying - be it in the left seat, the right seat or sat as a passenger in a rear seat! It's hosted by Mark and Elliott, two private pilots in the UK who thought that flying was too much fun not to talk about. We're as interested in the people who fly as we are in their aircraft.
