A pilot in the RAF for a very long time I became interested in Airshows when flying solo aeros. Got involved with RIAT in the late 70's and have been a volunteer with them since as Flying Programme manager, then FCC, Chair of FCC and latterly Display Director. Being invited onto the FCC at Duxford, and also a number of Seaside shows has broadened my knowledge and interest in the Airshow scene. I have experience in running overseas Shows -Australia, Malta and the Middle East and so when we formed BADA I wanted to help develop the Industry to both help ensure a future for Airshows and give something back for all the fun I have had over the years.

John Turner - 22 posts

John joined the Royal Air Force while completing an Honours Degree in Physics at the University of York. After an air defence tour flying the Phantom F4 with No 92 Squadron in Germany, he became a flight commander on No 4 Flying Training School RAF Valley during which he was awarded the 'Queens Commendation for Valuable Services in the Air' for safely landing a Hawk which suffered an engine failure just after a night takeoff. After attending Empire Test Pilots’ School at Boscombe Down in 1986 he was posted to the Royal Aerospace Establishment Farnborough where he commanded the Experimental Flying Squadron flying a wide range of aircraft including the Andover, BAC 1-11, Buccaneer, Comet, Jaguar, Hawk, Hunter and Varsity, on trials in support of the Establishment’s Research and Development programmes. These included helmet-mounted targeting, advanced air-ground weapon aiming and night vision low level techniques, including the first live weapon releases on night vision systems in Europe. In 1990 John left the RAF to join BAE SYSTEMS as an Experimental Test Pilot, first on the Tornado then in 1992 on the Eurofighter project. He became the first pilot ever to achieve 100 hours on Eurofighter/Typhoon and flew the aircraft at every phase of development until 2000. He displayed the Hawk at RAF Finningley, Avalon in Australia and Farnborough in 1992 and 1994, and the Eurofighter/Typhoon at Farnborough in 1996 and at Berlin and Farnborough in 1998.

Between trials, John flew as an ATP and BAe146 Captain and displayed the BAE SYSTEMS heritage aircraft, a Blackburn B2, an Avro C19 (Anson) and a deHavilland Cirrus Moth, and other Shuttleworth Collection aircraft. On 1st January 2005 John was appointed BAE SYSTEMS’ Director Flight Operations, becoming responsible for the management of all UK flying operations and the governance of the world-wide flying activities conducted by or on behalf of all the parts of BAE SYSTEMS. John retired from BAE SYSTEMS in 2010 to establish his own consultancy providing independent specialist advice/assistance on aviation matters. As well as flying and displaying a broad range of aircraft, he has been a Flying Control Committee member at many UK airshows and involved in Farnborough International Airshow in one capacity or another in since 1988. In 2005, he was awarded the Honourable Company of Air Pilots' Derry & Richards Memorial Medal "for outstanding contribution to flight testing" and he is a Liveryman and their Director of Aviation Affairs.

David Freestone

Having undertaken many years of voluntary work with the Air Training Corps and organising and supporting associated events, I found myself more and more involved in supporting the Royal Air Force's charitable work and grappling with CAP403, amongst many regs, in the context of organising flying events. I have also been active in providing PR support to RAF display teams including the Red Arrows, Typhoon, Tucano, Solo Hawk and Tutor display teams as well as working to raise funds for their chosen charities. I have now retired from the flying display world. But, for a short period of time, I will continue my role as a Chartered Transport Planner before fully retiring. However, I am still happy to provide advice to event organisers including recommendations for flying display items. I shall remain a member of the British Air Display Association, a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, and a Fellow Member of the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation.
