Conference call about latest aviation news

By iggypilot - Dec 06 2019

Great content. Good way to keep up with the latest aviation industry developments. Sound quality?....I guess I’ve been on worse conference calls. This one seems professional, sounds like they are in proper offices...There hasn’t been background sounds of toilets flushing, or kids screaming, or car turning signals. Also no snoring, dropped calls, or issues sharing their desktop, or apologies when someone realizes they’ve been talking on mute.

Great content but audio quality is lacking

I love to hear about the new projects and what is happening in aviation, but the audio quality is lacking. It sounds like they are recording with a potato. In all honesty they are probably recording in conference room and background sounds can be distracting. Also call in guest volume varies and can be difficult to hear
