Airmanship is what keeps pilots and their passengers alive. I found the standard of mine lacking when I reviewed the video from a recent flight.
I blow off some cobwebs, flying an RNAV approach in IMC.
On 9 January 2019, my friend Simon Moores, a banner towing pilot from Kent, died in an aeroplane crash in Spain.
A flight from Redhill to Le Touquet with my son was full of valuable learning points, including a terrible landing.
I gathered my favourite YouTube pilots, to bring you a special Christmas video.
After a lovely day walking around Alderney, I return across the English Channel to Redhill in Golf-Oscar Romeo.
Alderney in the Channel Islands, is just a 90 minute flight away from Redhill in a PA28. I took advantage of some early autumn sun, to make a day trip.
Our PA28 engine was in worse shape that we first thought. I visited the overhaul workshop to learn more.
Before Oscar Romeo was grounded, Instructor James Lee & I flew to Deauville in France for lunch.
I have news from Oscar Romeo’s annual. The annual is mandatory maintenance to light aircraft, and involves a five day inspection.
