Flying Wild Alaska's Ariel Tweto and Reno Air Racer & Test
Pilot Sean Van Hatten join Carlos, Armando and Matt for this week's
episode of the UK's number one Aviation Podcast.
Ariel Tweto from the wildly popular Discovery Channel TV show Flying Wild Alaska joins us on the show to talk to us about flying in Alaska, filming and producing the TV show, and her own journey to become a pilot, and life after the show.
Sean Van Hatten talks to us about being a test pilot, flight instructor, aerobatic performer, and being the pilot at the controls for the first flight of the Stratos 716 light jet which is a 6-seat aircraft aimed to compete with the Cirrus Vision Jet, the Cessna Citation and other light turboprops.
We take a quick sim through the big news stories of the week and in the Plane Truths with Captain Al we find out why the windows shades need to be up for take off and landing.
You have between now and Episode 330 to send us in something that we can play out on the show and the theme is "Aviation in My Life" - Any feedback written, audio, audio visual will do! You'll be entered in the draw to win £150 voucher for the Plane Reclaimers Website kindly donated by Andrew Keegan who was with us on Episode 324.
