Welcome to the Fighter Pilot Podcast!

You have found the Patreon page for the Fighter Pilot Podcast, the internet radio show that explores the fascinating world of air combat:
  • the aircraft,
  • the weapons systems,
  • and--most importantly--the people

This exclusive community offers everything from early access to feature episodes, to head-of-line privileges for your burning questions on military aviation, to various FPP-themed memorabilia... all depending on the chosen tier.  Your pledge not only affords you access to these perks but also helps keep this show going.

Who are we?

My name is Vincent Aiello, I am the founder and host of this show and BVR Productions, our parent media company which is comprised of volunteers from all over the world: Australia, Brussels, Spain, and the USA.

Over the course of a nearly 25-year US Navy career, I was afforded the opportunity to fly amazing aircraft such as the F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet, and the F-16 Fighting Falcon, accruing over 3,800 flight hours and 700 carrier landings along the way.  (The video above offers a glimpse into 'a day in the life.')

But the best part of my career was meeting and speaking with people who were not associated with military aviation and yet still found everything about it fascinating.  People like you!

So choose a tier and jump right in--we'll see you inside!
