Flying Podcast is aimed at aviators in the UK.
On this podcast we'll be chatting to flyers of all kinds.
Hopefully we'll be out there talking to anyone that has an interest in flying whether it be fixed wing, rotary, balloon, glider... anything.
Speaking to people that fly just for fun or to professionals that can maybe guide you and me through the maze of flight training.
So, if all goes to plan, we can maybe be entertained and learn something along the way.
