Twenty one years as a flying instructor

Microlight instructor and examiner, initially as an AFI at Popham airfield for Airboune Aviation, I eventually started my own school at Wycombe Air Park Booker. Working alongside British Airways Flying Club we built up a large and successful microlight school. Using the Eurostar as our training aircraft.

In spring 2021 I retired from instructing to concentrate on the GRS systems and maintenance of aircraft. I also plan to start doing more flight touring once again.

Gibraltar 

One of our LSFS club flyouts, to Gib, A great trip taking 17days in total, the flight took us through France Northern Spain and Portugal and then to Gib. The return was through Spain but we had to return to Portugal first as the Spanish did not allow flights from Gib to Spain.

This is just one of many flyouts, others include Scotland, Channel Islands, and Europe.
