  1. Dear Sir,

    I own blog about Aviation and am trying to promote it and increase my ranking with Google.
    Thought it would be beneficial to both of us if we could exchange links on our blogrolls. You will be getting links to your sites in return.
    If you agree, please add http://myaviationtutor.com with the tag “My Aviation Tutor” on your blogroll.
    Let me know once the link is added, I will add a link to your site on our blogroll within 24 hours.

    Sorry to write here but your contact page doesnt work

    Regards
    Alfred M

  2. I am not able to listen to Martin’s podcast (having player problems). A shame really, since I would have loved to listen to what he had to say about aviation education. We are in the flight training business ourselves, and look forward to aviation education updates. Anyway, I tried clicking on the link to Martin’s website, but it appears his site is no longer active. So I guess I’m stuck with you guys. Not a bad thing, as I’m an airplane geek myself. As soon as I figure out the problem with my player, I’ll make tuning into your pod casts a daily habit.
