MIflyer ,

Great!

A good guy with good info!

Angry Alex ,

Fantastic podcast!

This podcast is a well produced show by its creator, and fellow hosts (with no annoying doctors) of varying aviation backgrounds. If you want to hear the inside scoop from flying professionals, need good advice because you have a desire to fly for the airlines (especially U.S. carriers), or are fascinated with aviation, then this is a magnificent listen and place to be. I thought the APG Syndrome was bad; but that has been eclipsed by SI (maybe pronounce it like "yes" in Spanish, or would that cause confusion with the English letter..??) Syndrome! Thank you so much, for the work.

Alexflys05 ,

Incredible!

I have listen to Tony for the past 4 months and burned through all of his episodes. His knowledge and the way he informs his listeners of what’s going on is just as the title says incredible. I am a CFI about to make that transition from GA to 121 and I find the insight that Roger, Rob and Tony all provide is second to none and feel that my level of competency has increased going into my interviews. I hope to cross paths with him someday in the future and be able to share my story with him.
