Top Aviation podcast from a real Top Aviator

Believe me when I say Andrew is a great aviator and enthusiast who genuinely wants too encourage and promote people into aviation. Andrew is a natural podcast host. He puts the same high level of preparation into each podcast as he does with each flight he takes in his glider or big jet!
Enjoy each episode as he gets the best from his guests.

Superb and genuinely inspiring podcasts.

Andrews podcasts are superb and have reignited my passion for aviation. His modest interview technique and amazing guests are the perfect recipe for an inspiring listen .... wish I’d listened to his inspiring story 40 years ago when my careers master told me ‘I didn’t have the right stuff’ ... keep up the great work Andrew, best aviation content podcast out there!
