Today’s Flight Plan

The journey to this episode has been a long time coming, but the time has quite literally flown by. Through the few short years AviatorCast has been around we’ve had this continued focus on growth.

Taking to heart that growth in aviation that I talk so much about, I have done much myself to further my career in aviation. As a result, this year I’ve set all excuses aside and have gone hard and fast at my ultimate aviation dream; becoming a flight instructor.

And so, it’s with great excitement that I can announce that I’ve done it: I’m now a Certified Flight Instructor.

Today’s episode will be all about that journey, and then next episode I have some pretty big announcements for you guys in terms of ‘what’s next’.
