Why We Fly is a General Aviation podcast sharing pilot stories that illustrate the reasons behind why we choose to fly airplanes. We hope to share the adventure, excitement, and incredible experiences of flying.  By sharing our passion for flight, we aim to entertain pilots and encourage them to stay engaged with aviation.  But just as important, we endeavor to inspire potential pilots to learn more about flying and hopefully become pilots themselves.  

With that in mind, we encourage everyone to share some episodes of the podcast with potential pilots in your lives.  Find a friend, family member, colleague, etc. who may not know much about flying but would enjoy hearing the stories behind Why We Fly.  You can play a vital role in growing General Aviation and creating a future pilot.

Almost anyone can fly. We are here to share the Why.

More coverage from EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018! This episode focuses on warbirds. I was fortunate enough to get a ride on a DC-3 owned by Golden Age Air Tours and interview the owner about the plane and his planned trip with it next year to Normandy to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. I also spent some time in the Warbirds area and recorded the tram tour talking about all the incredible warbirds on display at Oshkosh.
