  • Not a lot of actual aviation content here

    The vast majority of the time (10 to 12 minutes of a 15 minute episode) of this podcast is spent advertising. The podcast contains multiple plugs for Patreon, the producer’s app, AOPA pilot protection insurance and an aviation headset. Only two to three minutes devoted to actual aviation content. There are better podcasts out there.

  • Great pod. Kinda disagree with the wind episode. The aircraft has some inertia to overcome when changing direction. Extreme example. Heavy airliner: 150kts. enough headwind for 0 ground speed. Steep turn to directly downwind. Now tons of mass needs be accelerated to overcoming inertia to get back to 150 knots. What do you think?

  • Best aviation podcast

    Jason is a top notch CFI with an encyclopedic knowledge of of the “finer points” of aviation. A true teacher who enjoys sharing knowledge and making pilots better and safer. As a CFI I’m always learning new things, new ideas to use in training my own students. Thank you Jason (and TFP team) for all your hard work with the podcast, YT channel and flight training app & other resources.

  • The Finer Points Indeed

    I have now listened to all of the Finer Point’s podcasts. I find Jason’s podcast to be fun & entertaining, but more importantly, to be very informative. A good pilot is always learning and I think The Finer Point’s videos and podcasts are some of the best for learning and keeping our pilot knowledge sharp. It will also remind you of why you love flying and aviation. It’s definitely worth the listen and my hats off to The Finer Points. Job well done!
