Airline Pilot Guy podcast

Hey there. My name is Jeff Nielsen, also known as “Capt. Jeff. [...] So, what is my show about? Well, just listen, it’s “the view from my side of the cockpit door”, I guess the best way to describe it is that I’m here to express my opinion and perspective as a pilot in the commercial airline industry. I am not an aviation journalist. I am not a travel expert. I cannot tell you anything about frequent flyer programs. There are plenty of great blogs and podcasts that cover that (and I’ll let you know which ones I like best). What can I talk about? Weather and how it pertains to my job, piloting, aviation safety (I graduated from the Accident Investigation and Flight Safety School at the University of Southern California/Norton Air Force Base), layovers, etc. I talk about news in the industry, travel-related stuff, incidents and accidents, and more. As I said, just have a listen. I hope you will enjoy the show!

Pilot to Pilot

My first aviation job was at a survey company where I was able to fly all over the country in a Cessna 310 and built my multi-engine time. I now fly a PC12 and Caravan for a cargo company based out of Ohio. In my downtime, I run the Pilot to Pilot podcast where my goal is to encourage and inspire aviators of all types to pursue their flying dreams.
