From old school to new

Thanks Trent I love the show. 30+ years of aviation around the globe and now back home.

I’ve converted ATPL and just about to do my FPC converting my last rating.

Your show has been the most informative on the subject of training and I love the support you give to young aviators out there.

Your guidance on the regulations and “interpretation” has shown me how, many are a bit confused by the wording and their own interpretation of particularly part 61. Mind you there are many contradictions within.

I wonder if the fact they need a plain English version of part 91 would point out that it’s not very clear?

I’m looking forward to continue my checking and training background in Australia and again thank you for your dedication and support to aviation in Aus.

An invaluable resource for Pilots

Trent and his podcast is brilliant. The information provided is invaluable for new CPL pilots (like me) and also experienced pilots. I wish I found this podcast sooner. It has given me the boost to push to next steps in my aviation career and has provided great insight in what it takes to be a working pilot. Thank you Trent, we all really appreciate your work.

What an amazing resource for information!

I’ve been listening for about 6 months, and 2 months ago started my training for an RPC certificate, but I do plan on heading into a GA role long term, Trents information and knowledge is invaluable and listening to it has inspired me to pursue a career into an industry I once thought I could never thought I could do!
