What is Aviation Streaming?

With hundreds of streams weekly watched by hundreds of thousands of viewers, live streaming from airports is an increasingly popular genre of entertainment on YouTube.

Aviation enthusiasts are able to watch take-offs and landings from their favourite airport without even leaving the house and as the famous UK weather takes a turn for the worse, many tune in to be amazed by the incredible skills of pilots as they battle strong winds, rain and hail to safely deliver passengers to their destination.

Watching live aviation streams is great for those who are nervous of flying. Seeing the normality of daily operations and regularity of safe take-offs and landings helps to provide confidence to those who find flying difficult or stressful.
