Plane Safety Podcast

Police, Fire, Aviation, Rail S >

Join Pilot Pip for a look at aviation safety news, incidents and your plane safety feedback. What’s the show about ? Well, it’s all about the promotion and education of all things flight safety. As a pilot, I’m always looking to learn and improve as a professional and so the show, as well as being a source of information for you the listener, is also a great way for me to become a better pilot and learn more about this job that I love. In each episode we look at various news stories and events, focusing on aspects of aviation safety. We also have ‘Topic of the Week’ where we look in detail at a technical aspect of flying, a past accident or sometimes an interview with another aviation professional. I like the show to be as interactive as possible so I love to receive listener feedback, thoughts, questions and ideas in ‘Squawkbox’
