week 2 update!

The past few weeks have been incredible for the Aviation LO Down! We have had over 9000 plays of our podcast, which shot us up to the #1 aviation podcast on iTunes for nearly a week! Last night I had the pleasure of interviewing my friend steveo1kinevo. In that episode (episode 4), he really opens up with some incredible stories, most notably the story involving him and the infamous FAA investigation. I will be down in Lakeland, Florida this April (2nd-7th) with Banyan Pilot Shop, at the annual SUN ‘n FUN Fly-In! I will be there representing my business, ATC Memes. Thanks so much for being a fan of this podcast; it will continue to grow thanks to people like YOU!


Week one – We’re on the charts!

Well, the Aviation LO Down podcast has been online just under a week now, and I’m happy to report that it has been getting an extensive amount of positive feedback. Believe me, I think this has a lot more to do with my incredible guest on the first episode, Captain Roger Victor, than it does me, but in any case, this has been very exciting so far! 

As of Saturday, February 9th, 2019, the podcast is actually charting as #3 in the Aviation category on iTunes; this is insane to me, considering the show has only been on iTunes for about 4 days. But nevertheless, this demonstrates to me the incredible community that is aviation. 

As I mentioned in my first episode, to me, nothing is more real and passionate than the aviation community, and I think this metric demonstrates it. I hope to continue to build this podcast and keep it exciting and interesting. Thank you guys so much, and I look forward to publishing another episode very soon!

First episode is up!

Hey everyone! I was happy to report that the number of people who were interested in learning more about this project was unbelievable; I had many e-mails and messages. I was going to wait a few weeks to record the first episode, but I instead decided to record a simple intro episode. Check it out on the Audio Episodes page! Be sure to follow the podcast on all social media and your favorite podcasting platform!

Episode 1: Welcome to Aviation LO Down!

Aviation Lo Down is a podcast hosted by David “LO” Lombardo from ATC Memes. In this first episode (recorded in a frigid car on a remote recorder), I simply take a few minutes to explain to my listeners what this podcast is all about. What makes aviation so passionate? Why did some people get into aviation? And why is it -49F degrees in Alaska? 
Join us on this journey. This will be Aviation LO Down.
