Flight Review – YouTube Channel recommendation

Just a quick recommendation for a wonderful new YouTube Channel – Flight Review. My man David Allen does a truly exceptional job of turning his Private Pilot lessons into a fascinating documentary. 

The production values in Flight Review are highly polished, and David himself is a compelling narrator. While my podcast focuses on explaining the concepts you need to know to become a Private Pilot, Flight Review shows you what it is actually like to take lessons. 

Flight Review is one of the best made YouTube channels I’ve ever subscribed to. Check out David’s first lesson now – and if you enjoy the show, please like and subscribe!
