AFSP 029: Leasing Your Aircraft To A Flight School and Fully Automated Airlines?

I’m changing things up this episode.  I don’t have any training material or school related topics to discuss so I’m calling on you, the listener, to write in with your opinion or experience with the two topics of today.  As you know, getting to 1500 hours isn’t easy for everyone.  Should I buy a trainer aircraft and lease it to a flight school and then use the plane whenever I want?  That’s topic number one.

Topic two is about whether or not we will ever see a fully automated airline.  Say what?  No pilot on board?  You must be crazy.  Well, it’s already being done; not with passengers but drones the size of 737s exist and automation is a reality.  However, will we see it in commercial air travel?

AFSP 023: Updates on my progress and new recommendations for Accelerated flight schools

Hello everyone!  It’s been a little while but for good reason.  I’m back with episode 23 and I think you’ll like it.  I talk about my current progress in my accelerated program in this episode.  I also have an updated opinion about accelerated flight schools that I feel you will find interesting.  This is especially true if you are considering an accelerated program and have commitments outside of school such as a family or a job.  Initially, I said it’s possible but lately, I am feeling that it may not be.  Listen in!
