Insurance Discounts, Standardized Aircraft Rental Checkouts, @OpenAirplane – Stuck Mic AvCast Episode 052


In Episode 51 we interviewed commercial pilot and co-founder of OpenAirplane, Rod Rakic, and learned about his flight adventures in Civil Air Patrol. Everything from how he got started to working his way up the ranks to mission pilot. Rod also shared some really neat information about the organization itself like how you can participate and many of the different types of volunteer opportunities available, even for the non-pilot out there.

Episode 52 is part 2 in this series where Rod explains everything there is to know about OpenAirplane and our predictions on how it’ll revolutionize the aircraft rental industry as you know it. Haven’t heard of OpenAirplane yet? Basically you’ll finally be able to rent an aircraft WITHOUT having to to do multiple checkouts for each FBO you fly out of. Yea, it’s the bomb, yo!

Now go grab a beverage, sit back, relax, and join us for Episode 52 sponsored by ForPilotsOnly.com.
