  1. Hello Pilot Pip,

    I heard about your podcast via Airline Pilot Guy podcast which I listen to frequently.
    I am Chief Theoretical Knowledge Instructor in a large ATO (Approved Training Organisation) in southeast Europe, and I also deliver Airframes and Systems as well as Jet Engine subjects ATP(A) integrated and other levels of licences.
    I’ve just listened to the episode 16 and found useful information – practical – about fire protection and oxygen systems, some of the info not found in the textbooks which is valuable to us, “theoreticians”. I would encourage you to continue the work, and I greet the idea of the Topics.
    It would be nice to cover some airplane system, but more from operational and practical side, as well as technical – e.g. pressurization system – how does it work in practice, your experiences, problems that can be encountered etc….this practical information is really what we need in preparing young pilots for their careers.

    Once more, thank you for the podcast. You can contact me over linkedin if you have an account there (using my name in the search) or directly via email.
