We’re pleased to announce that we’re currently recording Episode 1 of a new aviation podcast hosted by Adam Saddington, Marty Khoury, Ken Pascoe & Karlene Petitt. We may have another host join us shortly in an attempt to broaden our global mix of presenters but, at this stage, we’re sticking with what we have until we get a feel for exactly what it is we’re doing.
Despite many excellent programs of its kind, we identified with an opportunity in the marketplace to position our professionally focused program in our own niche; yet at the same time complement the existing podcast community.
We’re all currently active in the industry with combined flight experience exceeding 40,000 hours. Combined, we’ve flown at least 10 jet types and have worked in all areas of general aviation and the airline industry, including: marketing, sales, elementary flight training (as instructors), airline check and training, line flying, public relations, ground instructors (including CRM), management, learning management and social media. We’re hoping that the broad mix of talent will translate into an entertaining and educational show.
We have some guest presenters lined up that will join us regularly for their own segment. This line-up will include Kirsty Ferguson, one of the world’s most highly regarded interview coaches, for information on airline recruitment and interview techniques.The show will be presented in segments with a focus on interviews, training techniques, airline movements, fleet discussions, recruitment and current news.
We’re more than thrilled with the commitment that many industry experts have shown us by way of interviews and publicity. Our first show will feature some of the best known personalities in the global aviation community.
We’ve attracted a lot of support via our mailing list at FlightPodcast.com with over 2200 subscribing within the first week alone.
