It’s Friday! Closed Traffic Welcome’s EFS
My friends welcome to yet another podcast and what better way to kick off the weekend than chatting it up with some fellow pilots and avid aviation enthusiasts! Johnny and Mike welcome Mike G and Fabian from Extreme Flight Simulation. EFS is a Chicago based company featuring a state of the art 737 flight simulator that allows the public to try their hand at flying anywhere in the world in any weather conditions, from your most novice to your advanced line pilots doing it out there in the real world and looking for some sim currency time, EFS has what you need and so much more. We had a blast on this podcast, from business discussions with Mike, flight simulators, and learning from a truly impressive young pilot in Fabian, it was truly a pleasure.  Mike, Fabian, and the EFS team will join us again at this year’s FlightSimExpo so be sure to stop by and check out their booth as well as their Chicago based simulator experience if you are ever in the neighborhood! Listen in and as always let us know what ya think.   EFS Website & Socials If you'd like to support on Patreon:

Once You Have Tasted Flight....
With no guest lined up for this session, the duo returned with the intention to shoot the breeze for a quick conversation that ended running almost two hours long! So much discussed in this session and many takeaways for the community. At end of the day, chase your dreams friends, don’t settle for mediocrity, and never give up! “Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” -Leonardo da Vinci
