Introducing AvTalk—the Flightradar24 Aviation Podcast

Introductions

We’re excited to introduce ‘AvTalk’, our new Flightradar24 aviation podcast, hosted by Ian Petchenik and Jason Rabinowitz, two aviation geeks with a passion for anything that flies.

Ian is Flightradar24’s communications director, whom you may remember from such films as the Cathay Pacific 747 tour at Oshkosh. Jason’s been researching and writing about aviation (especially in-flight connectivity) for years for publications like Airline Reporter, Runway Girl Network, and Forbes.

We’ll be bringing you a half-hour dose of aviation highlights every other week by avgeeks, for everyone. You can listen or download the podcast today from the blog and it will be available soon from your other favorite podcast outlets like iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Music shortly.
