Go Flying Australia Podcast 021 – David Jardine (Lifelong GA pilot) and Ryan Campbell (Teen world flight)

Show notes:

The first interview is with General Aviation Pilot David Jardine.  Dave has flown some awesome aircraft types and I was lucky enough to talk with him about some of the these including the de Havilland Tiger Moth, Harvard and the universally adored Piper J-3 Cub.  Also we discuss some of the challenges for students learning to fly and some of the emergency situations he has encountered along the way.

Some of the types that David has flown are below:

The second interview today is from Rick Watson who is a New Zealand based Microlight pilot.  In the interview Rick talks with Ryan Campbell who was the first teenager to fly solo around the globe breaking a record set earlier by American pilot Jack Wiegand who was 21 years old.  During his journey Ryan flew over 24,000 nautical miles over 70 days in a Cirrus SR22.
