Saturday marked my last opportunity to exhibit under the University of Leeds at Pilot Careers Live. As always, it was an absolute pleasure to meet potential aviation degree students and aspiring pilots. I’ve had a cracking time at these Heathrow exhibitions and I will miss them. I’d been looking forward to this exhibition for weeks. […]

Nope, this isn’t the start of Sweet Caroline – what a classic. Yesterday I was fortunate enough to return to where it all began, back in Dundee. Dundee and much of Scotland in general has some absolutely beautiful scenery. England is beautiful from the air but Scotland is something else altogether. For this reason, I […]
