A while ago I mentioned that I'm working on a bi-weekly podcast about the weird and wonderful people you meet around airfields.
I promised this place would be the first website where I'll publish it.
So here you go - Episode One. This show isn't even on Apple Podcasts yet, so you guys are getting a very early preview!
Grateful for any feedback, ideas and suggestions.
Oh, and Episode Two in exactly two weeks' time.

Episode Two of the Two Thousand Feet Aviation Podcast is now live.
I go to Portugal to talk to Malcolm Howland​ about the benefits and pitfalls of learning to fly overseas. And I catch up with Gerry Breen​, - the man who invented the word "microlight" and who set quite a lot of records in the early days of the sport.
You can listen here (link below) or - even better - subscribe on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, Spreaker, etc., etc.
I'd be very grateful for any feedback - in the meantime, I'll get down to work on Episode Three. It will feature one of the greatest eccentrics of our sport.

In Episode Four of the Two Thousand Feet Aviation Podcast:
- Why adding an NPPL SSEA rating to a microlight licence makes good financial sense (for me)
- Why adding astroturf to a runway makes good business sense for one airfield owner
and
- Why teaching disabled people to fly makes just good common sense for Aerobility, a UK-based charity.
Here it is, on iTunes - please subscribe, rate and review.

Good morning. Here's Episode Five of The Two Thousand Feet Podcast.
It's a special, - where I spend 20 minutes asking questions, - such as:
- what's the future of general aviation
- why would an 80-year-old fly around the world
- why aren't there more female pilots
- and where are all the cheap microlights.

In Episode Six of the Two Thousand Feet Podcast, -
Dean Okeefe​ loses an engine in the worst place you could imagine, Mark Coreth​ turns flying into art, and I - don't do a lot else than ask a few questions. You know, because this is not Top Gear, and I'm not Clarkson.

In Episode Eight of The Two Thousand Feet Aviation podcast, I celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first non-stop Transatlantic flight by going to Ireland to look at flying boats and to fly a 737 simulator.
And I talk to James Ketchell, who is flying his gyrocopter around the world. He describes flying in Russia (a flight plan just for doing circuits, anybody?) and counting whales in the Bering sea.

ISTR that in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, when non-military flying was again allowed within US, in parts of Maryland and Virginia and possibly more widely, IFR flight plans were required for all flights, including circuits.

Episode 9 of the Two Thousand Feet Aviation Podcast. We talk about flying commercially, for airlines; and about a unique - and quirky - museum of garage parafernalia at Rochester Airfield.
