The best aviation podcast

I’ve been listening to this right from the beginning and it’s honestly the best aviation podcast out there. The rapport between Doug and Drew just adds to the extensive knowledge that they share and the ops topic is definitely a unique item in the world of avgeek podcasts.

By far the best part though is when Doug’s young daughter Poppy speaks about her experiences of aviation - so cute!

Thanks guys, keep doing what you’re doing and here’s to the next 50 episodes!
