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.

    Rolling with the Punches — AviatorCast 164

    Have you seen the classic movies series Rocky? It's incredibly motivational. What makes this story the most compelling of all is the wrestle with that inner struggle we all have -- pain vs gain.

    On this episode we'll pump you up with a round of motivation through those hard times. It's the old "when the going gets tough, the tough get going".



    In this podcast we will discuss:





    Talk about Rocky! When you get “knocked down” in flight training, or your career

    How to “get up” How to “keep moving forward”





    Come join for this fun-filled and motivational podcast.

    In this podcast we will discuss:





    Enter the mind of a student pilot (you?) 

    Discuss the self doubt we all face

    The CFI Perspective on Student Progress 

    What to do with that self doubt
