I'm 43 years old and have been flying since the age of 6 (1978) around the Coventry and Leics area. I taught a 63yr old to fly when I was 11yrs old, and flew consistently until university each Sunday with my dad. After a break due to uni and getting married I returned to the hobby at 29yrs old and since then have been a member of 3 or 4 clubs. I now live in the northwest, and fly regularly. I fly all manner of aircraft including helicopters from indoor micro to 30-50cc petrol models, electric and IC. I am B cert fixed wing and Very competent with helis and I still teach.
It has always been a shared interest with dad and a great glue which keeps us close. He has always been an innovator and early adopter and has modelled all his life. I enjoy the hobby a great deal but have never enjoyed beaurocracy and over zealous rules.
It is a hobby and to be enjoyed
