Fighter Pilot Podcast

The Fighter Pilot Podcast explores the fascinating world of air combat: the aircraft, the weapons systems, and most importantly--the people. Most episodes feature a guest who helps explain the topic at hand, such as how ejection seats work or what it's like to fly on and off nuclear-powered aircraft carriers.

Strap in and hang on for this incredible show. If you love the roar of a high-speed flyby or are enamored by the poise and confidence of the brave men and women who fly, fix, and fight these aircraft, then this show is for you.
