A Collection of Selected Aviation Podcasts and Videocasts

This page will provide you with links to some of our favorite aviation podcasts that consistently provide safety news and education as well as current events and interesting aviation topics.  The featured sites may or may not represent SCAUWG.ORG, or any of the membership of SCAUWG.  SCAUWG.ORG provides this page as a community service, but understandably is unable to provide a specific endorsement for any of the covered material. SCAUWG.ORG always recommends that site visitors consult with their own aviation mentors for personal advice.  Still under construction, I will be adding newly found podcasts regularly...
