In the first episode of BoldMethod’s new weekly Podcast – Direct To – Aleks Udris and Colin Cutler explore the history of the transponder, and why pilots use the phrase “squawk” with ATC. They also dig into why airliners are required to use nitrogen in their tires, and if the payoff is worth the cost for general aviation aircraft.
The weekly podcast covers VFR and IFR flying topics, as well as stories behind the people and technology that make flying possible.
“Whether you’re commuting to work, at your kid’s soccer practice, or just looking to learn a little more about aviation, the Direct To podcast is a great way to stay informed about what’s happening in aviation,” said BoldMethod co-founder Colin Cutler. “Plus, you’ll make yourself a smarter, safer, and more entertained pilot.”
