The tale of the Flying Midwest Podcast is one of vision, shared passion, and the skies of the American Heartland.
A Meeting of Minds
The brainchild of Jim Schilling and Trevor Norman, the concept for our aviation podcast began independently. Both harbored the same dream: to create a podcast tailored to aviation enthusiasts in the vast Midwestern United States. It was through the introduction of a mutual friend, equally captivated by the world of aviation, that our collective journey truly took flight.
Completing the Crew
Our aviation odyssey wouldn’t be complete without CFI Madi Johnson, who brought her wealth of knowledge as a certified flight instructor to our team. With Madi on board, our trio was formed, each of us contributing our unique experiences and expertise to the mix.
In late 2022, our co-founder Trevor stepped away to focus on his military and aviation career. After some episodes as a duo, Jim and Madi welcomed a new co-host to the podcast. Long time listener and supporter, Andrew “The Badger Pilot,” joined our team to return the crew to a trio once more. Badger brings a love of aviation, a great sense of humor, and a big personality to to team.
