From a professional pilot of over two decades, I learn a ton from RH & AG. They are hilarious & informative. The fact that non pilots, student pilots, pro pilots, and other air traffic controllers listen speaks to the success of OB.

AG and RH are picking up where the Tom and Ray left off... RIP. OB has replaced Car Talk as my new favorite voice talk show. This is the most interesting, educational and hilarious aviation podcast around.

Description

RH and AG are two experienced air traffic controllers and pilots that host a weekly show answering listener questions, breaking down complex aviation topics, and relating their experiences to everyday occurrences in the national airspace system. The hosts and guests do not represent the FAA or NATCA and express their own views and opinions.
