Matt Voska and Alan Guichard found themselves loving aviation, but as university students, not being able to afford to follow their dream. But then it came to them. Develop a platform that brings together plane owners looking to defray their cost of flying with the aviation enthusiasts who are willing to pay their fair share to fly to a nearby destination. And with that, FlyteNow was born (flytenow.com). Listen in, as Matt and Alan share with the SimpleFlight crew, their aspirations and plans to expand general aviation, making it accessible to aviation enthusiasts and future pilots.
Marc and Al also covered current news topics, including AbleFlight scholarship recipients, the possible end of airframe icing, the best $100 hamburger locations, and Open Airplane's addition of Hawaii to their sites. We also ask you help Marc out, by providing your advice as to how he should best add a multi rating and earn his commercial license.
