Regardless of viewcounts – these are some of the best, little-known Flight Chops episodes

Regardless of viewcounts - these are some of the best, little-known Flight Chops episodes

The life of a Youtuber is filled with surprises — some Flight Chops episodes take off like a rocket, fall right into Youtube’s internal promotion algorithm and get thousands of views per hour — while others, sometimes even the very best stories we produce, somehow miss the mark and don’t get picked up and spread out by the algorithms in the ways they should.

And it’s not just us — this happens to all Youtube creators.  We get a lot of feedback around here and, often, even our viewers can’t make heads or tails of what’s going on.

While we can’t exactly control all that, there is a silver lining — our very own Flight Chops Headquarters — where we can give new life to the episodes we feel are some of the very best material we’ve produced.  The ones we’ve poured our hearts and souls into.  The ones that place the viewer right in the pilot’s seat, or that teach the most, or inspire the most.

So without further ado… 

Here are some of the very best little-seen episodes on the Flight Chops channel.

I’m a Private Pilot, doing my best to stay current and learn. I fly for fun and might just be the least cocky pilot on the internet! My self analysis videos can seem self deprecating at times, but I am trying to learn from the small mistakes to avoid making a big one; I’m happy to share and find it rewarding to help other pilots or aspiring aviators in any way that I can. How does the saying go? “Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards”. And in aviation, not all tests are survivable.

My virtual “ride-along” flying videos are aimed and sharing my experiences and giving back to the aviation community which has been so helpful to me. I shoot multi-camera angles, get detailed real time instrument panel shots, and have radio intercom audio. I respect people’s time, so I put a fair bit of work into editing to keep the videos concise and engaging; I add animations and further graphics and voice overs where needed to add context and explanations.

My hope is to continue to grow and evolve the “Flight Chops” project with input and support from the aviation community!

I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share.

Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
