Welcome to Episode 5 of Up and Away, the Australian aviation Podcast!

On this week’s episode we have bush pilot Tim Howes. Tim doesn’t like airports, or runways at all! His style of flying sees him landing in places you wouldn’t ever imagine seeing a plane. We discuss his story of taking the affordable path into aviation, and how it can be inexpensive for you too. We delve into what bush flying is exactly, and what you need to do and know to keep yourself safe.

We would like to note that the style of flying described in the Podcast can only be achieved safely through dedicated training and experience. It’s also important to note, some of these highly-skilled maneuvers, including partial water take-offs and landings are not permitted in Australia. So ensure you obey rules and regulations outlined by CASA, and stay safe!
