Episode 6: Alex MacPhail

In Partnership with the SLC Group: https://slcgroup.co.za

Alex MacPhail had a fascination with flying from a young age and has been a professional pilot for 21 years.

Trained as an Air Force pilot, MacPhail spent three years flying formation aerobatic displays with the Silver Falcons. Thereafter he piloted Airbus and Boeing airliners all over the world for 12 years, before being retrenched due to the demise of SAA.

MacPhail’s entrepreneurial instincts took over, though, and he now shares insights, from more than two decades of professional aviation, as a keynote speaker.

And, as host of 'Alex MacPhail Podcast' and 'World Championship Air Race' podcast, he has interviewed more than 100 world class performers from across the globe.
