Seaplane stories at its best
Great engaging seaplane podcast. Dan gets the most out of his guests and makes for sensational listening. If you are into aviation or are a pilot start listening. You don’t have to have sea planes on the radar, but it will be after you put on your headphones and flip flops and stride out onto the step!
Great Resource for future seaplane pilots
As a 39 year old student pilot in Queensland with a aim to be a float plane pilot these podcasts have been very helpful.
Super interesting interviews
Dan keeps coming back with another guest with a fascinating story to tell. I’m just a recreational/light sport land pilot but these flying boat stories are pretty inspiring. Thanks Dan!
