Fly IC (mainly) and electric fixed wing. Now dabbling in multi-rotor UAVs. Completed an MSc in UAS Technology and intending to operate in that market commercially - have passed the Ground School and Flight Test for a PfCo. Also tutoring / lecturing on fixed wing construction and UK Law for drone flying / operations at Glyndwr University.
Formerly the Chairman of the Oldham Model Aero Club and a club instructor. I do have a B certificate in Fixed Wing.
My main rc hobby interests are sportsman aerobatics and scale + also making sure we all have fun on the flight-line! Embarrassingly I have too many models to list here including a few ‘hangar queens...’
Professionally I have worked at senior levels in the Aerospace industry since 1980 and now run my own companies supporting that sector.
I have always loved aeroplanes and WWII warbirds in particular. (Been in love with the Spitfire since I first saw the Airfix Mk IX 1/72 scale bagged kit in the early sixties...)
