Flying and me

I'm a cross country glider pilot flying from Cambridge Gliding Club. I fly an HpH Shark Jet .

I'm a BGA Full Cat Instructor with an MGIR - FI(S) and TMG, often instructing in a K21. See here for a flight which the student videoed.

I teach navigation and field landing skills, and carry out Cross Country Endorsement tests on the SF25. I also teach cloud flying skills for the BGA Cloud Rating and EASA Sailplane Cloud Flying Rating.

Sometimes I give Scouts introductory flights.

I spend a month or so most years mountain flying in the Alps. If you want an introduction to mountain flying down in the Alps, the RAFGSA do it well, here.

I rather like the video you can find on the links page showing a pass of Mont Chaberton.

I'm also a tug pilot and fly the Robin DR400. I do a little tug pilot checking and coaching.

I have a PPL with an Instrument Rating and have a share in a Mooney 201 which I use to fly IFR around the UK and in Europe. I'm a member of PPL/IR Europe which I can recommend to anyone with any sort of instrument qualification.
