The Two Thousand Feet Aviation Podcast

Learning To Fly Professionally; A Museum of Petrol Pumps



In this episode, we talk to two pilots and one collector. The pilots are Anita, a student of one of the airline schools, and Craig, who flies for an airline in Asia. What's it like to fly commercially in the current booming market? What is the day-to-day life like for an airliner pilot? And why is airline theory so hard? Do you have to be an Einstein to pass those fourteen ATPL theory tests?We also meet Trevor Hoare, who runs one of the weirdest airfield museums in the UK: he collects, and displays, petrol pumps. Trevor explains why you'd put a petrol pump into your conservatory, and why a garage is so much more than just a place to buy petrol.Support the show (
