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.

    Wind Wise Tips for Flying Airplanes — AviatorCast 132

    Wind is a major factor to flying an aircraft through the sky. Would you believe me if I said we’ve been looking at it all wrong? Let’s dive into the fundamentals of wind, and what you can look forward to in each phase of flight as you are battling (or working) with the winds.

    * How to see the wind, with indicators and with visualizations

    Smoke is No Joke! Flying Dangers + Aviation Safety — AviatorCast 130

    Smoke is No Joke! Flying Dangers + Aviation Safety — AviatorCast 130

    It’s been a record breaking year for wildfires. They still rage in California and other locations. This seldom taught topic in aviation almost caught me in a trap this Summer as I was flying in the smoke. Others weren’t so lucky, and there were some accidents. 

    In this podcast we will discuss:



    * My encounter with smoke on a trip from Anchorage to Homer

    * Illusions, physical issues and observations on flying in smoke

    * Why we need to avoid the smoke

    * The added layer of TFRs that pop up for firefighting efforts



    This may seem like an odd topic, but I’m hoping it reaches the ears and eyes of those that could benefit from the knowledge of the future. I learned that smoke is no joke and is very dangerous.
