Uncovering the people and passion behind aviation... one story at a time

HiflyMedia is an Australian-based aviation podcast launched in 2023, dedicated to sharing the unique stories and experiences of the aviation industry.

Welcome to HiFlyMedia, a podcast that explores the human side of aviation. My mission is to share inspiring stories and engaging conversations that showcase the people and passion behind the aviation industry.  

The Host

Damien (aka Damo) attained a commercial pilot license in 2010 and is passionate about aviation, keen to share the stories and experiences that make this industry so unique. From his humble training days in the Piper Tomahawk, to learning the finer points of flying ‘stick-n-rudder’ in the Bellanca Decathlon, to attaining a Night VFR rating and also Multi-Engine Command Instrument Rating flying the Beechcraft Duchess.  He then achieved a type rating on the Cessna Caravan, rounding out his experience flying a turbine powered airframe.  All of this was accomplished during a time in his life which required a high level of expertise and dedication to aviation. 

The Content

The podcast is dedicated to telling the stories of pilots, engineers, air traffic controllers, and others who make aviation possible. Exploring their personal journeys, the challenges they’ve faced, and the triumphs they’ve achieved. Damo believes aviation is more than just a means of transportation – it’s a community of passionate individuals who share a love for flight and adventure.  

The Purpose

The goal of HiflyMedia is to provide a platform for the aviation community to connect, learn, and share their love of aviation with one another. Whether you’re a seasoned aviation enthusiast or just beginning to explore the world of flight, you are invited to join Damo as he uncovers the people and passion behind aviation… one story at a time.
