This is my favorite podcast to relax with while squawking 1200 five hundred feet above my closest Bravo’s airspace and between practicing for my Wookie audition on the guard frequency. Five stars, and a Brasher warning for anyone who disagrees! RH and AG have joined the ranks of history’s great...Read full review »

After 500+ five star reviews, if you are not listening by now, you should. To assist, I asked Chat GPT to make a “AG appropriate” review: Esteemed listeners, please allow me to proffer a comedic critique of the Opposing Bases podcast, utilizing an elevated lexicon replete with polysyllabic and...Read full review »

Been putting this review off for far too long. As a student pilot in the Metroplex Executive south of the Mythical Triad airspace I was told by my PPL CFI of the most informative podcast in Aviation. I passed my PPL checkride in May 2021 and 2 weeks ago passed my Instrument as well. DPE and...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to RH and AG for a few months, and make sure to catch every week. I’m about to start my IR Training (written already passed) and this is definitely a huge help.

What can I say? RH and AG (or is it RG and AH?) are truly great dudes in make believe and reality. I’ve met them in a person a few times (or have I?) at that great place that is Oshkosh. They are very passionate about what they do and we are lucky to have them pass their expertise down to us! AG…...Read full review »

Just started and am hooked. Have 50 years in the NAS and thought I knew it all…not so… Well produced and done. You are helping scores of pilots and controllers who make the effort to tune in. BO

Want to learn about aviation? Want to laugh and enjoy learning? This is the place to be. RH and AG give you an inside look of air traffic control and the perspective of being the person giving orders to aircraft so they don’t touch. As a student pilot I have learned a lot from these two.

As long as the NOTAM system stays up… “Attention all pilots, why are you not listening to this podcast?” If you are not, I need you to copy down this number….

Podcasts can sometimes really drag out with drawn out personal stories, random animal distractions, and commercial breaks that can really take away from the content.

I am not an early adopter. I didn’t own any Small Fruit products until I got my PPL in 2011. I didn’t get an autopilot in my elderly airplane until just last year.

Prior to listening to Opposing Bases, flying IFR in the NAS felt a little like being plucked off the stands to join a (mostly) pro basketball team.

I am absolutely addicted to this podcast and cannot wait until the next episode drops. What I can't figure out is WHY?

As a longtime subscriber of many podcasts, I thought I had a good grasp of what makes an excellent podcast, curating a list of what were, in my eyes, five-star heavyweights.

As a new private pilot flying in the middle of no where, I stick to the non-towered airports as I’m pretty intimated talking to ATC.

Love the site when it sticks to the advertised subject matter (ATC). Little disappointed in the amount of personal talk about window repairs, back pain, etc. i think i speak for all GA pilots when I say this is a very valuable insight to what happens on the other side of the call. Thank you!!
Tides24 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/22
Love the show and really enjoy hearing the ATC perspective on daily life in the NAS. As an active CFI and “Acme” 737 captain, I find this show to be informative and entertaining. My three-year-old son refers to AG and RH as “those boring guys” and my goodness does he nap well when listening to...Read full review »

Information as vast as a center’s airspace…knowledge as deep as the sleep of a center controller…humor as dry as a Carolina basement…and a vocabulary as…well, as limited as a sixth-grade dropout’s.

Not only do RH & AG provide a great POV from the other side of the mike, they instill some humor into Air Traffic Talk.

My CFI looked at me and said, OK, call up the tower… I’m sure they said more, but my brain had already stopped processing. Stage fright. A completely blank mental script.

mike Juliette tango via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/19/22
A fun and enlightening podcast that clears away some of the ambiguity of the air traffic control system. The two hosts, Romeo, hotel and Alpha gulf do their best to maintain a degree of anonymity for themselves, and the other suspects. All one has to do, however, is listen to live ATC from the...Read full review »

Only subscribe if you want to be swept away to the mystical land of triad, a place where pushing penguins off an iceberg is a fun and enjoyable activity. This is the Click and Clack of aviation. Where else can you be VFR and get scolded for changing altitudes.

Listening to AG and RH is reminiscent of Car Talk with Click and Clack, the tappet brothers.
