“Happiness is a well-sorted aeroplane.”
I started to get interested in model aeroplanes when I was about five or six years old, when I would happily chase after chuck gliders and rubber powered models. An interest in control line flying followed from the age of about eight, but I never really got the hang of going round and round, so I inevitably got dizzy and fell over…. a lot. But, thank goodness, radio control came to the rescue. I built my first R/C model at the age of ten (in 1964) ---- and started designing them at the age of 11 --- and it has been steadily downhill all the way since then... Tee-hee.
I will fly anything with wings on it. I also run buddy-box flying sessions for groups of kids in order to introduce them to the hobby.
I am currently an Area Chief Examiner and Area Chief Instructor for the BMFA.
This fabulous hobby has given me a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Long may it continue to do so.
