Happy prizewin­ner!

Pilot - - AIRMAIL -

Avid reader of Pi­lot mag­a­zine, whom I thank for the com­pe­ti­tion, and Mean and Green for the prize. Here pos­ing in my su­per prize out­side my place of work, the Brew­ery Arts Cen­tre in Ken­dal. I’ll be giv­ing away the smaller ver­sion to one of my work col­league’s chil­dren, and mak­ing a do­na­tion to the Great North Air Am­bu­lance Ser­vice.

A pri­vate pi­lot, I got my li­cence in Jan­uary 2008 af­ter be­ing bad­gered into it by a work­mate who knew of my long-stand­ing in­ter­est in avi­a­tion. I re­sisted a lot as I knew what the out­come of hav­ing a trial les­son would be... in fact I first got the bug with Ken­dal 1127 Sqn Air Cadets (rank at­tained Cadet Flight Sergeant) many moons ago in Chip­munks at for­mer RAF Ous­ton (near New­cas­tle). Cur­rently fly­ing out of Kirk­bride as our nor­mal air­field is be­ing up­graded for com­mer­cial op­er­a­tions – Carlisle Air­port, where our fly­ing club is based – Carlisle Flight Train­ing.
