A run in with "Aviation Careers Podcast"

The Aviation Careers Podcast website at

Let's face it, a career in aviation can be difficult to achieve.  Luckily there is Carl Valeri to the rescue!  Carl, and experienced airline pilot, helps promote careers in aviation through his podcast "Aviation Careers Podcast" (found on Itunes).   The website for the podcast contains a wealth of resources from a "Pilot Jobs Book" to information about various scholarship programs.

Flying into some bad weather!

The Aviation Careers Podcast is a well produced, well organized podcast that gives an in-depth look at the airline industry.   The podcast typically features co-host Eric Crump, the Aerospace Program Director from Polk State College, and Tom Wachowski, an Aviation Professional.

He does fly out of KEWR..

During a podcast, Carl and one of the co-host field questions from various newbie pilots.  Questions can range from "do I need a 4 yr degree for become an airline pilot" to "what type rating should I obtain".  Many of the podcast incorporate a topic and Carl is very adept at interviewing professionals from all over the airline industry.   For example, Carl recently did a show where he interviewed Doug Ward, a 737 pilot about flying in China (ACP068).   Recent guest also include corporate pilots, bush pilots, aviation photographers, airline stewardess, military pilots.

If you are a flight simulator geek like me, then start downloading Carl's podcast right now!   It is very interesting to listen to.  If you love aviation and want to hear about it from a career aspect, this is a great podcast!   I have generally found that Carl's advise can be adapted to other careers!  

For the Love of Flight, kickstarter page.

You may remember my push to support Danial Shulte's Kickstarter project "For the Love of Flight:An Aviation Film" a few weeks ago.   Around that time I wrote Carl to ask for his support.  While he was not able to officially support the project, he was nice enough to respond to my email.  Carl flies the Airbus A320 for a US airline.  While emailing him, I thought it would be funny to send him a screen capture of me flying the Aerosoft Airbus into some bad weather.  He flies the real thing, and I fly it on my computer..  (What is the difference...... Lol!)  To my surprise, Carl liked the screen capture and used it on his official webpage for the podcast!  I feel pretty honored!
