Flying

Instrument training

I have to revalidate my restricted instrument rating every 25 months with a flight test. As I approached the deadline for my test, I took a flight with an instructor to brush up on some rusty skills.


Flying from the UK to the Netherlands

Watch as I encounter Poor visibility on a crossing of the English Channel, a wake turbulence warning near Amsterdam, and parachutists on landing.  


Behind the scenes at Southend Airport

In the final part of this series, I demonstrate the procedures and typical radiotelephony when operating from an aerodrome in controlled airspace in the UK.


Full ATC – Behind the scenes

In part 3 of my aerodrome and radio telephony series, I demonstrate the procedures used when operating from an aerodrome in the UK with full ATC.


Aerodrome procedures series

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


AFISO aerodrome procedures and RT

In part 2 of this series, I demonstrate the procedures and typical radiotelephony when operating from an AFISO aerodrome in the UK. I visit Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green aerodrome.


Behind the scenes at an air-ground aerodrome

I’m pleased to release part 1 in my long-anticipated series which goes behind the scenes at UK aerodromes.  In the four episodes, I give real-world examples of what’s involved with flying into and out of various types of aerodrome in the UK, and highlight the differences in  procedures.




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.
