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.

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


European adventure

In May 2018 I joined three other aircraft on a five day tour of Europe, flying through France, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Germany and Belgium.
