The RenegadeAV8R Endorses Flight School in Reno, Nevada

Reno, NV, February, 2020 -- If you love watching airshows or have ever dreamed of being a pilot, you’ve most likely heard of the RenegadeAV8R radio show hosted by David Costa in Reno. The primary focus of the radio show is to promote aviation and encourage pilots of all skill levels. Costa says, “the show is a way of giving back to the aviation community, current pilots, and future aviators!” Surprisingly, if you’re not into flight but have a passion for excellence, overcoming obstacles, or achieving big goals – RenegadeAV8R is a radio show you’ll also enjoy. 


RenegadeAV8R also performs with airshows in a Jet Demo with the TS-11 ISKRA Jet. This military jet has seen over 50 years of active military service and is a unique addition in jet airshows. It’s quite incredible to see this jet closeup, then to see it fly at less than 100 mph, and then finally whoosh by at speeds in excess of 400 miles per hour.


David’s passion for aviation and quest for excellence is combined in a unique way that inspires people to follow their passion. If you need a break from the traditional talk show, this is a refreshing alternative. The show includes an interview with a variety of people such as airshow performers, aviation professionals, and others who have inspiring and engaging stories.


As with any independent radio show, RenegadeAV8R has gained the support of sponsors over the years. More recently the top-rated aviation school in Reno, Advanced Aviation Reno, joined the list of sponsors. Bob Meurer, President of Advanced Aviation Reno stated, “We are thrilled to be a part of The RenegadeAV8R Radio Show with David Costa. His recommendation of the high level of flight instruction that we provide, means a lot.”


Advanced Aviation Reno is the next step in your journey, whether learning to fly, taking a discovery flight, learning to become a pilot or improving your skills if you are a pilot already. In fact, there is no better time in history to become a pilot than now. As seen in other fields, such as medical professions, there is currently a pilot shortage. They welcome you to a tour of their facility before you make any commitments. Visit Advanced Aviation Reno’s website at  for more information.


During the tour of Advanced Aviation Reno, you’ll their FAA approved Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD simulator) see first-hand. The simulator can manage 34 single and multi-engine piston powered airplanes, 7 turboprops, and 2 jet configurations. Many students use some simulator time as part of their flight training according to FAA guidelines. The simulator is also used for community outreach programs for youth field trips, Veterans events, and STEM education activities.


The flight instructors are experienced in aviation, from airline captains, airline trainers, flight instructors, to professional pilots. If you already have your pilot’s license, Advanced Aviation Reno can help you keep on top of required flight hours and extended training, including a Jet Transition course and Multi-Crew Pilot training courses.
