John Goglia and Gregory Feith, two well-known and outspoken aviation safety insiders, this week released episode three of their new podcast the "Flight Safety Detectives." The show looks in depth at aircraft accidents, aircraft technology and the big business of aviation around the world. The hosts will also provide important "backstories" to the flying public and the industry, especially those that can't be explained in a typical TV 30-second soundbite.

The pair of safety experts will also discuss the politics and policies behind many issues that can mean life or death in the skies, while informing listeners about industry technologies and improvements that make aviation the safest form of transportation today. A number of episodes are currently available that include discussions about topics like the October 2018 crash of Lion Air Flight 610, the Boeing 737MAX 8 jet, and the second 737MAX 8 jet crash involving Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in March 2019.

Goglia spent nearly a decade as an NTSB Board member and remains the only airframe and powerplant mechanic to ever receive that presidential appointment. His experience in the industry has made him a highly sought-after consultant, expert, speaker and writer. He is a frequent contributor to Forbes and the author of "Torqued," a monthly column appearing in AINOnline. Goglia is chairman of the Professional Aviation Maintenance Association (PAMA).

Feith is a former NTSB Senior Air Safety Investigator and “Go-Team” captain with more than 40 years of experience under his belt, including more than two decades with the NTSB serving as the Investigator-In-Charge or U.S. Accredited Representative for numerous high-profile aircraft accidents. Some of those were the crash of Valujet in the Florida Everglades, American Eagle ATR-72 in Roselawn, a Korean Air Boeing 747 in Guam and others.
