Highly expert but sometimes myopic

Despite my score, I strongly recommend this podcast to anyone who is interested in aviation. The journalist have good access and deep expertise. However, the outlook episodes with a forecast from Accenture are full of current business school buzzwords with little substance. A few years ago they said block-chain software would transform aerospace. This year AI will transform aerospace. How exactly will that happen? Did the block-chain revolution ever do anything? I never hear any follow up on previous predictions.

Great Aviation Podcast

Great podcast for Aviation News and insights. Especially around the Boeing crisis, and when it comes to Airshows. Just wish the episodes were more frequent, as there can be weeks between episodes.

There should be more content related to Engine Propulsion and the major manufacturers.

Great listen!

Love this!

I used to subscribe to AWST magazine as a kid. This podcast is a great answer for me in that I can just select which I want to listen to. Thanks so much and keep them coming.
