The Pilotcast

Adventure Training - The PilotCast crew banters around ideas with respected author and CFI Greg Brown, to discover ways to bring the sense of adventure back into flight training. From building a sense of community for new students, to rethinking the flight training curriculum, CFI pay, and becoming a pep-talk-giver yourself, no topics are off limits in this exciting episode.

The Efficiency Guage! It's once again time for the Pilotcast with your hosts Pilot Tiffany, Pilot Kent, and Pilot Bill.  In this episode we'll talk about the efficiency guage.  Don't have one of those in your airplane?  You'll wish you had one; imagine 140 knots on 9 gallons per hour.  We'll tell you how it's done.  Then we'll talk about restoring really cool old warbirds.  What's not to like?  Come in from that cold ramp, pull a chair up around this toasty warm radial engine, and let's get ready for some pilot talk. 

Don't forget to check out Scheyden Eyewear, the absolute best in the business, especially for aviators.  Use our discount code PCAST30 for 30% off an already great value!

Also, the Pilotcast flight crew all use Lightspeed Zulu headsets, and we think you should, too.  Don't forget to choose an aviation charity for Lightspeed to donate $50 of your Zulu purchase price to.  See more about this at the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation website.
