Why We Fly by Forge Flightworks 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.

Forge Flightworks, formerly known as Carpenter Avionics, the largest avionics service center in the MidSouth, is an award-winning FAA Authorized Repair Station that sells, installs, maintains and repairs avionics, aircraft interiors and airframe systems for business jets, turboprops, piston engine airplanes and helicopters of all ages.
