FCC Experience:- A lifelong airshow attendee, (my parents took me to my first airshow at Old Warden when I was still in a push chair). I'm a multi engine DA holder, with experience flying BAe Jetstream displays, and hopefully Saab 340 displays in 2023. My day job is flying with Cranfield University's National Flying Laboratory Centre, where I'm the head of training and fly their Saab 340 flying lab and single engine light aircraft. I also operate a 1950's aeroplane from Old Warden and have some formation experience. Whilst my main interest is the flying display I am also very interested in how the whole event comes together and relish the chance to learn how such public events are organised.
