Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Carlos, Nev, Armando and Matt bring you a weekly Podcast that will focus on the Commercial and Military Aviation news relating to us long suffering members of the general public.

Nov 15, 2020

Join Carlos, Matt, Nev and Armando for today's programme.

In this week's show we learn that despite what's going on there's still a pilot shortage, there's good news for holiday makers in Bristol as Jet2 announce their opening routes and there's breaking news about an incident involving an Antonov-12.

In the military the German parliament approves a whopping 5.4 Billion Euros for 38 Typhoons and the new home for the Flying Legends is announced.

It's the first part of our interview with Faradair's Neil Cloughley and in the Plane Truth this week we learn all about the amount of time pilots and crew can work whilst on duty.

We also share with you some great feedback from Jan Hübner and Dan Seaman.
