Flying

Video: Redhill to Alderney

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.




Engine trouble

I have news from Oscar Romeo’s annual.  The annual is mandatory maintenance to light aircraft, and involves a five day inspection.


Glider ditches in the sea

A glider ditched in the sea off Beachy Head in East Sussex on Saturday 13 October 2018. Gary Ramsdale, a light aircraft pilot, flying overhead reported the emergency to the UK distress and diversion cell on 121.5, thereby ensuring that the Coastguard helicopter knew the precise location.


Jersey to Lydd IFR

I fly the family back home from our weekend stopover in Jersey, but have to do so under instrument flight rules.




Video: My hardest flight ever

This was my most difficult flight undertaken to date.  While trying to cross the Alps from Croatia to Austria, I end up diverting due to cloud and high terrain.


How to file a flight plan

I am frequently asked how does one file a flight plan?  In this video I attempt to answer that question.
