Jimmy Tidmore - Plane Faith
In today's episode we are going to do something that's a good bit different than anything we've done before. Because in today's episode, I am going to be the guest. Yes, instead of me interviewing someone else, in today's show, you are going to get to hear someone else interviewing me. And in that interview, we'll get into many of the details and the backstory of Plane Faith and how it came into existence.

Excellent. I hope he makes more podcasts
As someone who is going into mission aviation, this podcast really helped me understand what it was like from the inside, and really helped me realize my call.
Aviators Fighting the Good Fight
Hear real-life stories of missionary aviators bring the love of Jesus to remote parts of the world. I'm to old begin such a venture, but I enjoy hearing these pilots tell how God uses them to bring light and hope where there is darkness and despair.
Specific and inspirational
I was suprised to find a podcast on this topic that is so specific. I work as a missionary and am in the MAF process, so this was a great podcast to find. Its got a nice balance of faith talk and technical talk. Will be interesting to see who features in weeks to come. Thanks for the podcast and keep it up!
