AvTalk Episode 196: Our favorite conversations from 2022

From people who live and breath the nuts and bolts of running an airline to journalists covering the business of aviation, our conversations took us all over the world and down more than one rabbit hole. To close out the year, we revisit some of our favorite AvTalk conversations from 2022.

Flying Zero G

Novespace chairman and former astronaut Jean-François Clervoy explains the physics of parabolic flights and we find out that we came very close to seeing a much different aircraft used for these zero g flights. And Pilot Bertrand Rameau explains exactly how pilots perform the parabola maneuver and what it takes to become a zero g pilot.

Making sure the airline keeps moving

Michael Karrels is a dispatcher for a major legacy airline in the US. He joined us to discuss what it’s like to be a dispatcher and how the work of a dispatcher differs in the US compared to other countries. Michael’s own Flying and Life podcast is a great jumping off point for going deeper into the life of a dispatcher.
