16 – Aerial Application, Cessna 185, Warbirds and More!

You’re about to hear a conversation with Matt Brignac who talks about some very interesting and unique areas of aviation. Matt’s an Aerial Applicator from Mississippi who also has, as a traveling airplane for him and his family, a Cessna 185 with a belly pod.

We’ll learn about number of things: what people used to call “Crop Dusting” that evolved into Aerial Application, how much Matt and his family can pack into their Cessna 185, and some of Matt’s rewarding Warbirds experiences.

Matt and I spoke during Sun ‘n Fun 2018 under the wing of his 185, and as you might imagine, sometimes the airplane sounds get a bit loud, but please stick with it because Matt’s got some great stories and some great information to share.

Interview recorded April 2018.

15 – Why We Fly

We talk with Mike Harris of the “Why We Fly” podcast, and we talk about that exact topic. Why do we fly?

We talk about how we can help people, who don’t have much exposure to general aviation, understand how fantastic general aviation is.

This episode was recorded at Sun ‘n Fun 2018 under the wing of Mike’s vintage Piper Tri-Pacer. What you’ll also hear in this episode is a fighter jet, with full afterburners, during the air show, periodically interrupting our conversation.

Sorry about those interruptions, but if you’re listening to an aviation podcast, you’re probably not going to be too upset about that.
