Steve Thorne, perhaps better known as Flight Chops, has over 300,000 subscribers and 47 Million views on Youtube. His context-laden aviation analysis and learning videos take viewers through everything from warbird flying to tailwheel checkouts to seaplane training. In this episode, we discuss the challenges of making aviation television and what drove him to create Flight Chops. We also dive into why video is so useful for de-briefing, how he stays safe jumping from plane to plane in short order, and the importance of pre-takeoff briefings.
