About Max Trescott


Welcome!
I'm the guy who brings you the top-ranked Aviation News Talk podcast and YouTube videos free of charge. But it takes me 1-2 days each week to create the regular weekly podcast and even more time for YouTube videos. I hope these shows are helping you! If they are, Please support me so I can continue to produce high quality material for you each week.

Why I do the Show. I created Aviation News Talk because, while I love being a cohost on the Airplane Geeks podcast, there isn't enough time available on that show for me to share all the information I’d like with listeners. And, as I listened to other aviation podcasts, I wasn't finding the kind of general aviation show I was looking for. I teach flying 5-6 days a week! And often after a flight, I think, “I need to share this information with other pilots to help keep them safe.” That's why I started the show...to provide valuable information that might help save a life (and I've already been told by one pilot that something I told her saved her life!).  

What You Get on the Show. A no-nonsense, to-the-point show focused strictly on General Aviation. I don't talk about airline and military aviation stories, unless there's a point to be made related to general aviation or flying safety. You can get aviation news on lots of web sites. But I give you a perspective on the news that comes from over forty years as a pilot. In addition to news, on each show I talk in depth about a pilot skill or safety issue. And I spend a lot of time researching information, so you can rely on what I tell you. Listeners have given me tons of feedback, and they say they find the show interesting, informative, and chock-full of relevant content and commentary. They like that the show is to the point and doesn't waste their time.

Please Support My Work! Thanks for being part of an aviation community interested in continual learning to maximize safety. Producing a podcast is far more work than I imagined, which is probably why so many podcasters eventually drop out. Early on, I said I wouldn't take advertising for the show, though some listeners have encourage me to do so. Instead, Please support the show in any way you can! Please donate at any level you can. Thank you and keep the Blue Side Up!

Each show I produce, takes over a full day of my time! And the special 2-hour ATC Privatization show took nearly six full days to create. All of this takes me away from the way I earn a living, which is giving flight instruction. Please help me replace some of the income I forgo each month to produce this show for you!
