Other Hangar Flying Podcasts

Hi, UCAP gang,

It might be interesting to hear what your second, third, and fourth most favorite G.A. podcasts are, after UCAP of course. Not only have the "boys" mentioned other podcasts from time to time, they have appeared in some of them, notably during Podapalooza, and also more recently when Dave appeared in the Pilot's Flight Podlog.

My favorite (after UCAP) is decidedly Airspeed. Steve Tupper has a knack for creative and compelling radio work as well as flair for story telling. He picks subjects and interviewees that you wouldn't normally think of and does an all around great job.

I've been listening to Jason Miller's Finer Points for over a year now, and have learned a lot. It's not strictly speaking a hangar flying Podcast since it is primarily instructional, but he sometimes crosses the boundary into free-form commentary and does a great job all around.

The Pilot's Flight Podlog by Will Kawkins is an emerging gem, a work in progress. He did a great series of casts as he recorded his own flight training, and now he is doing actual flying experience stories with other pilots. Contrasting with Airspeed, Will's style is more conversational than interview, and the conversations are informative.

There are many other good aviation Podcasts which are not "hangar flying" so belong in another genre, but I'll mention Aero-News Net and Avweb as two good outlets of news if you want to keep current on what's going in the aviation industry. There were two other good Podcasts by airline pilots (Flying Pilot Podcast and Fly With Me) but they don't seem to be actively working on those at the moment.

What are your favorites?

Jim G.

Ditto to all of the above. I just started listening to Will. He's pretty good also as was the Pilotcast when they were around. I just listened to Hometown Tales mentioned in another post. That was fun.

As far as non-aviation podcasts go I also listen to TWIT, The Alaska Podshow, Tekzilla, Tips from the Top Floor, Happy Shooting (German), Creative Pastors Podcast, Cartalk, hak.5, lab rats and digital underground.

I pay $70+/ month for directv pretty much just for my wife and daughters. I watch CNBC and that's about it. I even get the weather off of the computer these days.

Once again, ditto the above podcasts, especially Will's podcast (though I'm a bit partial - see episode 3 or 4 where I am the guest and talk about an experience flying in the Pittsburgh area). In addition, I like the Pilotcast and by extension, the CFICast - both of which just released a couple of new episodes after a long absence, and rumor has it that they are going to start releasing more regularly again. Perspectives in Avation Safety is another pretty good podcast that I found recently.
