Episode 319 Show Notes


Topic of the show: Kids in Aviation and ATC On this week’s show, AG and RH discuss their ideas on getting kids interested in careers in aviation. Do you have an aspiring young adult and you are trying to find ways to introduce them to aviation?  Does you kids stare out the window and wonder at the magic of aviation like we did when we were young?  We also discuss trip planning with important passengers, non-towered operations, and more of you aviation questions and feedback.  This was a really fun show.  Enjoy!
