New mini series out soon

I’ve been busy filming a new mini series, demonstrating aerodrome and radiotelephony procedures in the UK.

Flying into Le Mans

Le Mans is best known for its sports car racing, but next to the race track is an aerodrome.  We popped in there for an overnight stay, on our way back to the UK.
