Informative and entertaining

I discovered this podcast when they started mentioning it in their YouTube videos and on their site. It both informs me on the world of commercial aviation and it entertains me. Something that is rare in podcasts. The hosts work perfectly together and I love their episodes with special guests/ topics. The only thing I wish they would cover is my favorite little airline Cape Air based in Massachusetts. I would like it if they did a special episode on them and their 32 year history.

Great podcast

I enjoy this podcast tremendously. Great information on the airline industry. Unbiased, well researched and presented in a professional, but also entertaining way. Thank You for all you do.
