Fantastic, easily digestible, great for all levels of aviation enthusiast.

I first heard of Derek during brief forays into VATSIM and seeing clips of his twitch streams, which then led me to the podcast. The first thing that struck me is how well Derek is at making the material understandable and approachable to listeners of all caliber, whether they be new to aviation, an ATP holder, or anything in between. Its very nice to have his opinions and topics backed up with his real world experience as an air traffic controller, which adds a nice layer of proffessionalism to the pod. Its evident that he's a comfortable speaker as he and producer Chris make the pod a fun, educational, and interesting foray into the world of aviation. Would reccomend to anybody out there! Keep up the good stuff.

Derek is da-man

Derek is such an inspiration to the aviation community in which he serves. Being a full time air traffic controller in the busiest airspace in the country, then spending countless hours interviewing, editing and posting the people who are associated in aviation is such a huge accomplishment. I wish more young people in this country had his drive and determination. Derek, you are amazing and your work ethic is one to be proud of. Keep up the great work my friend👍👍 You are one of a kind and have made yojr mark in this industry in a very short time. God bless you brutha.

Great podcast for Pilots, especially low time pilots

It’s great to hear Derek’s perspectives as a low time pilot. He is also does a good job with his guests.
