The pilots' perspective

Updated: May 7, 2019

Do you listen to podcasts?


This is a Freakonomics Radio podcast episode featuring Patrick Smith, Cockpit Confidential’s author. Answering Stephen Dubner's questions, he gives his opinion on the business of flying, the pilot-less plane, the evolution of flying from the passenger’s perspective, pilots training (and the dreaded idea that plane fly themselves thanks to autopilot systems) and many other subjects.


We’re curious about what you think after listening to it. Agree, disagree? Can you suggest other podcasts/podcast episodes that you think aviation enthusiasts should listen to?
