Become the pilot you've always wanted to be. AviatorCast bridges the gap between actual flight training and flight simulation to give prospective aviators, current pilots, and even the seasoned flyer new perspectives in aviation.



Through studying Human Factors we learn to combat the worst enemy to our flying success; ourselves. How can we become better aviators by interacting with our airplanes more effectively? How can we overcome the shortcomings of our human condition to make better decisions on the flight deck?



We believe in learning to a confidence level, not learning to a level required by law. When you get a license, you should be ready to go out and fly in those conditions, with those aircraft, and do so with refined skills.



Flight simulators these days are very advanced, and we will discuss how you can sure up your flight training with a home based simulator, giving you limitless hours and practice in IFR with scenario based training.



Learn how to fly, become better at your flying craft, mold into a safer pilot, or perfect your professional skills.



AviatorCast is an engaging and entertaining podcast that is sure to deliver on the topics you care about.

Great Show

I started listening to Aviatorcast a few years ago but unfortunately due to work, moving home and life generally getting in the way I stopped. However I am in a good place now and back flying my SIM and catching up with all the episodes I have missed which is quite a few.
Keep up the great work Chris and .............................Throttle on!!!!!!!

A healthy dose of aviation enthusiasm in every episode

Update [18/05/2017]
I already wrote a shining review AviatorCast, but thought it deserved an update!

Back in December 2015 shortly after the passing of a close relative, I was struck hard by the realisation that the only time to do what you dream of doing is right now, as "someday" might never come. Aviation had been a hole in my life since I was a teenager, and it had been on the "someday" list for far too long. At 30, whilst looking for aviation content I downloaded an episode of AviatorCast, then immediately binge-listened to the entire back-catalogue! Taking mental notes along the way, and meeting some great and inspiring people as a result (see original review below).

It's now 18 months later, I've moved to the west coast of Canada, I'm a Private Pilot, I fly at least twice a week alongside the beautiful mountains and coastlines of British Columbia, I'm working towards my night rating, building hours for Commercial, and have met even more incredible people in the aviation community via my local flying club and the online aviation community. Much thanks to the great advice I received via the mentoring programme I discovered on AviatorCast!

Chris' pleasantly infectious enthusiasm about aviation beams through the headphones each episode, and it's great to hear about his journey toward his own goals on the 'cast. So my heartfelt thanks Chris for what you do, and for bringing such openness to the way that you present the information and stories that you share. Here's to another 100!

P.S: No need for another t-shirt, I'll pick one up when I come up to AK for some bush flying lessons. #AvGoals ;-)

Original Review [05/02/2017]
AviatorCast is part of the open and approachable face of the contemporary aviation community, and such a great source of info that I often find myself taking notes as I listen.

I was looking into ways to get fired back up about aviation after more than a decade away from my last solo flight as an air cadet in the UK. I found AviatorCast when I saw FlightChops' Steve Thorne was a guest, and subscribed immediately after listening to it. Following that, I heard the interview with Sendaero’s Mike Rushforth, signed up for mentoring and am now preparing to start my PPL training later this year.

I can’t get enough of it, thank you for the content Chris, and please keep it coming!

P.S: I subscribed via PocketCasts - I don’t actually use iTunes, so came on here just to write this review. ;-)

It gives me wings!

I have been a listener for some time now and love listening to Chris talk so passionately. It has been a dream for many years that i might one day fly for real. Finance and family have always taken this away, however, I have been a flight simmer for more than 25 years.
I am, right now, piloting my FlyUK 757-200F from JFK to Seattle on a late cargo flight. This keeps my passion for flight alive. I shall be adorning Hanger 1 at Cosford Air Museum in Shropshire, UK, tomorrow for Flight Sim 2016. Can't wait! This podcast is the icing on the cake. Here's to one day flying for real. For now though, I will accept a computer screen with an ever enticing yoke before it. Keep up the good work at Angle of Attack, I can't wait for the next episode, just make is snappy. Take care.
