In this special report, I travel to the Slovenian/Italian border to try flight in Pipistrel’s Velis Electro. The world’s first certified electric aeroplane.
I visit a luxury fly-in retreat in the Scottish Highlands, and see a real example of why it’s always essential to carry fuel in reserve.
I learn how to fly a Piper Arrow 3, which has a variable pitch propeller and retractable gear.
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.
