AvTalk Episode 101: Our favorite conversations from 2020

Happy New Year! This week we’re looking back at a couple of our favorite AvTalk conversations from 2020. We’ll be back on 15 January with our first new episode of the year.

Completing the Trifecta

Jon Weiswasser is a doctor, the drummer for Eagles tribute band Eaglemania, and a pilot with an engrossing YouTube channel called Life in the Fast Lane and he joined us in May to talk about completing the trifecta—landing at Newark, La Guardia, and JFK during the same flight in a Vans RV-8.

Jet Test and Transport

Steve Giordano is who you call when you need to get a handful of 737s out of Australia in the middle of a global pandemic. Or perhaps you need a Dash 8 made airworthy and flown from desert storage in the US to the middle of Africa. His team at Jet Test and Transport fill a fascinating niche in the aviation industry and Giordano joined us in October to fill us in.
