Former Flight Training magazine aviation adventure columnist Greg Brown is bringing some of his most popular tales to life in the recently released Cockpit Adventures from the Flying Carpet Podcast series.
Listeners can join Brown, a general aviation flight instructor who is recognized for his writing and photography, as he shares aerial adventures he has documented in a Cessna 182 Skylane affectionately known as his “Flying Carpet.”
In the “Sky King & the Old Apache” episode, Brown talks about a checkride challenge he experienced in a Piper Apache, and the backstory of its relationship to the Cessna 310 featured in the television series Sky King. “Cowboy Pilot” introduces listeners to a Western rancher known as Baldy and a Taylorcraft taildragger adventure they shared.
The author of Flying Carpet: The Soul of an Airplane, The Savvy Flight Instructor, Job Hunting for Pilots, The Turbine Pilot’s Flight Manual, and You Can Fly! is also a noted aviation and landscape photographer, and the host of a social media aviation group.
Brown was the 2013 recipient of the AOPA Let’s Go Flying Award, which recognized his passion and commitment to aviation.
