The common theme in this episode is about going around the world, first by bringing Saj Ahmad (Fleetbuzz Editorial) in the UK and Ben Sandilands (Plane Talking) in Australia together to talk about financial reports from QANTAS, Virgin & Tiger plus general discussions about airlines in Australia, past, present & future.
We then chat with Ken Evers & Tim Pryse, a couple of local lads who are going to fly a Gippsland Aeronautics GA-8 Airvan around the world to raise funds to help fight against malaria. You can read more about their epic journey at Millions Against Malaria.
We also give a few shout outs & read some mail:
- Tom for listening to all 25 episodes in less than a week – now *that’s* masochism :)
- Steve Cooke in the UK and his Flying Podcast that gives a great perspective on flying in the UK and Europe.
- Christie Walker who we’ll be chatting to soon and is interested in learning more about Australian airline cadet pilot programs
- Grant’s sorry for being behind on all the emails that have come in
As usual, our theme music track is “YouNameIt5” by Brian Simpson (aka t3cat5) and our sound effects come from SoundSnap.com.
