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.

 

Please visit the Why We Fly Store for t-shirts & other items.  All purchases help support the podcast so we can continue to bring you great aviation content.  THANK YOU for your support!

Recorded at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019.  This is a panel discussion featuring the P-51 Mustang and WWII Triple Ace Bud Anderson.  It is fascinating to hear Col. Anderson describe several of his 16 1/4 kills shooting down Nazi aircraft, including how you get a 1/4 kill.  Hear stories directly from an American hero and...
