The Airwaves by Aviation Trader podcast was started by Steve & Grant working with Tony Shaw from the Aviation Trader magazine. The podcast ran during 2019 and 2020 with Steve & Grant hosting the show while Aviation Trader staff provided the editorial direction.

Sadly, COVID killed the market and stopped production of the show. The show was wound up when Aviation Trader was purchased by Sandhills.

An archive of the Airwaves by Aviation Trader episodes can be found on Southern Skies Media’s Airwaves by Aviation Trader site.

Steve & Grant have been producing Australia Desk segments for the Airplane Geeks since 2009. More than just a news report, many of those produced include quirky views on the topics at hand, commentary and, in many instances, radio-play level audio production around themes associated with the news items.

Originally produced weekly, the Australia Desk has reduced to an “as required” segment based on availability and news worthy items. The full collection of Australia Desk segments can be found within each Airplane Geeks episode but also on the dedicated Australia Desk site.
