I had always worn a beat up old Dave Clark headset… not because I wanted to, but because I couldn’t afford to upgrade; Or at least I thought I couldn’t.
Moving to a Bose A20® headset has been a game changer for me.
The sound quality is truly unbelievable – not to mention the crazy features like bluetooth connectivity for phone calls that are both convenient for opening / closing flight plans from the cockpit, but also a safety feature as you can use it as an alternate way to contact ATC in the event of a com failure.
And it is so comfortable; the slight dull headache I had gotten used to and simply associated with flying is gone – I often fly on commercial airliners to get to “Flight Chops” shoots, but even when I am not planning to fly GA at my destination, the A20 is still in my carry on, because I use it to watch movies and it makes a coach seat feel like first class, because it literally takes you out of the cabin into your own private space with the active noise cancelling.
I can not say enough good things about the A20®, and I am proud to have the chance to give them away to viewers via the monthly contest
Bose has facilitated a bunch of occasions to meet viewers in person, like these:
Not only has Bose been a very supportive sponsor helping us to fund the production of some great content, but the A20 is truly an awesome headset and I am proud to wear one – here are a few of my favourite previous episodes that feature the A20:
Crawl through a B-29 Superfortress IN FLIGHT! + Real-Time procedures / ATC – Oshkosh AirVenture!
Pilot Dads Flying Daughters to DisneyLand in DA42 + Engine Failure Training – FLIGHT VLOG
Multi Engine Flight Test prep – Check Ride NERVES! – Piper Seneca – Flight Training VLOG

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.
