21 – 11,898 Miles to Oshkosh

If you’ve experienced Airventure Oshkosh before, you might have heard some stories of the long distances people have traveled to get there.

Well, I’ve never heard of a longer distance than what Glen Towler traveled: 11,898 miles.

Glen is from New Zealand, and on this episode we talk about a lot of interesting things: what aviation is like in New Zealand, about some of his aviation interests and experiences, and how aviation podcasts and aviation social media can make some unique connections, and some new friends.

I met Glen a few years ago in Camp Scholler, and he’s a great example of the interesting people you can meet in aviation, in some cases, literally from the other side of the world.

Interview recorded July 2018.
