Are there any aviation enthusiasts out there? If you’re interested in a career in aviation or you are already involved in the industry, then you’re probably spending a lot of time talking and reading about aviation.
Sheffield looked at the best aviation blogs of the past year and decided which were our favorites. These are the best aviation bloggers to follow in 2018:
Aviation week is a professional aviation blog that provides lots of insight into every corner of the aviation world. It’s a fantastic place to get the most current aviation news. If you’re on the go more often than not, you can subscribe to the news letter and stay informed.
JetHead is a professional pilot blog that can be read by all. Chris Manno is an American Airlines pilot with over 30 years of experience. His topics range from “Fearless Flying Guides”, “Airtravel Gotches” and “Airsickness Prevention”.
His blog is easily accessible for amateurs and experts alike and he’s created quite a flowing, already. Definitely worth a read.
Reddit aviation is not a blog but a constantly updated list of top aviation blogs, resources and stories. Members of the aviation industry come together to give insights, talk about the fields they are in, and share some of the most important of even funny news updates they find online.
If you haven’t subscribed, you should.
The Cranky Flier is a fantastic blog for experts, amateurs and aviation industry titans. The blogs founder, Brett Snyder, has had almost every position you can imagine in the aviation and his knowledge of the industry is his real secret sauce.
His blog is a lot less technical than you might expect from a pilot blog or an aviation mechanic blog, but if you want to know about the business of aviation in detail, this blog is for you.
Tales from The Terminal is the detailed daily musing of an accounted working at a small airport. Jennifer has a much more amusing take on the airline industry and her website disclaimer is proof of that. This airline blog is best suited for the amateur who wants to learn more about the industry in general.
Joanna has an interesting take on the airline industry in that she is not directly involved in it at all. Her husband, Steve is a pilot and the inspiration for the blog name came from the words her son said when he saw his father leave for work one morning.
Joanna’s blog is important because it gives us a different perspective on the aviation industry. We hear from pilot bloggers, aircraft dispatchers, flight attendants and the rest but we never hear from their families. This is an eye-opening blog, especially for pilots with families.
Is it cheesy to include your own blog in your top aviation blogs of 2018? Maybe, but Sheffield is still the only aircraft dispatcher blog where you can get the latest news about the industry. We spend most of our time teaching, talking, and thinking about dispatching.
