The Leaders of Aviation

The aviation industry is responsible for so much, from bridging countries, continents, and cultures, to making international trade possible. We all know the big names in aviation, from Boeing to Duncan, but what about all the mom-and-pop aviation businesses? The Leaders of Aviation podcast is here to give a voice to those very people. Interviewing aviation small business owners and other aviation personnel, we’ll hear their stories and get a glimpse into their world. Through these stories of triumphs as well as setbacks, we hope to inspire the current and next generation.
