Podcast: Five Tips for International Flying

June 15, 2015
Flying internationally is different than flying domestically – not only in terms of routes and procedures, but also in terms of what you can expect on the ground. Gary Tucker, technical coordinator of the NBAA International Operators Committee, offers his top five tips for international operations.
