Great first podcast! For your listeners thought I would share these links because bedbugs are a BIG DEAL! If you bring them home it can be a lot of $$ to get rid of them!

Great job guys! I liked everything except the part of the guest CFI giving free instruction.... seriously? Free? That's too bad for the CFI's out there trying to make a living. Kinda hard to compete with a guy giving the service away!

I agree with you, pro-CFI. We have set some limits for Will (ground instruction only, until the end of the year) so we're able to keep freelance flight instructors working for money! Since we're just getting started, we wanted to share an easy way for our inquiring students to get in touch with an accessible flight instructor. We want to show people that they DO have access to general aviation. Hope you stay tuned for the next episode.

Speaking of Bed Bugs, about a year ago my hubby got bites all over his legs at a hotel in OKC. It was pretty nasty. After several complaints, including his own, the company finally changed hotels. The regionals don't put their pilots & crew in the nicest hotels for the reason that they are trying to save as much money as possible. Money is the name of the game. Nice podcast guys! :)
