034 Driving vs. Flying vs. Airlines

Podcast cover
Read more

A very common question I get from people who don't know much about General Aviation is how long does it take to get places and how much it costs.  So on this episode I take several trip scenarios and compare the time & fuel cost for driving, flying a General Aviation airplane like mine, and flying on the airlines.  This is a great frame of reference for someone who in interested in learning about General Aviation for personal or business travel!

058 OSH18 - Warbirds

Podcast cover

More coverage from EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018! This episode focuses on warbirds. I was fortunate enough to get a ride on a DC-3 owned by Golden Age Air Tours and interview the owner about the plane and his planned trip with it next year to Normandy to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. I also spent some time in the Warbirds area and recorded the tram tour talking about all the incredible warbirds on display at Oshkosh.
