  • A recent medical event that had me out of action, the result of that medical event and how it relates to aviation
  • The fear of the unknowing in aviation our duty as aviators

    All too often I get student pilots that succumb to self doubt. That is, not believing they can make it through flight training or that they don’t have what it takes. This is a VERY common occurrence that we all face, so we’re going to tackle it head on in today’s podcast.

    In this podcast we will discuss:

  • Enter the mind of a student pilot (you?) 
  • Discuss the self doubt we all face

    They say “build your time” and “pay your dues”. But in aviation, is it worth giving EVERYTHING up for that ultimate dream? Or are there limits to the insanity we should put ourselves through?

    For some, aviation is a religion. Not sure that’s good or bad, but it is what it is. There is something spiritual about flying, so it makes sense.

    Without spoiling too much, they are…

  • THOU SHALT BE SAFE
  • THOU SHALT AVIATE, NAVIGATE, COMMUNICATE — IN ORDER

    Flight training is a load of fun if you’re lined up with the right instructor and school. But even then, eventually it’ll get difficult. Not because it isn’t fun, but because it’s a lot of work. That’s why you need to be committed to “The Grind”.

    In this podcast we will:

  • Discover how making up your mind is the most important step
  • And by doing what it takes, you’ll have the personal determination to get there
  • But then you’ve gotta ta...

      Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
