I’m thrown into the deep end, and made to land a 737 simulator, after a hypothetical emergency on-board, that leaves the flight deck crew incapacitated.
I’ve been busy filming a new mini series, demonstrating aerodrome and radiotelephony procedures in the UK.
In July 2019 I flew across France in my PA29 share-o-plane, with fellow pilot John Parker.
It’s the news you and I have been waiting for. Oscar Romeo is almost out of the sick bay.
Our PA28 engine was in worse shape that we first thought. I visited the overhaul workshop to learn more.
I have news from Oscar Romeo’s annual. The annual is mandatory maintenance to light aircraft, and involves a five day inspection.
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.
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.
Would you know what to do, if you had to crash your aeroplane in the sea? The Flying Reporter joins other pilots on an extreme survival course to learn new safety skills.
In this mini series, I demonstrate some of the steps I follow, when preparing for a light general aviation flight in the UK.
