Hi, I'm a 60 year old Private Pilot with a passion for flying. Though flying is my hobby, I endeavour to approach it in a professional manner. In my 12 years of flying, I've clocked up over 1200 hours in 14 countries, and obtained Instrument and Class Rating Instructor ratings along the way. I now own shares in two Light Aircraft, pictured above. I work as a Technical Consultant to the Oil Industry, which takes me all over the World, often at short notice.

    Day trip to the Isle of Wight, from Cardiff

    Fantastic experience from start to finish. Mike was helpful in terms of pointing out places we were flying over but also giving us some information about places too. He was personable, friendly and put us at ease immediately as we hadn’t flown in this type of aircraft before. We had a fabulous day and would recommend Mike to anybody looking to fly - you won’t be disappointed! A tremendous trip and we will definitely be doing this again. Kev and Karen.

    Excursion flight from Cardiff to Caernarfon

    6 stars would be more appropriate. An amazing tour, but the icing on the cake is that Mike goes the extra mile. He makes it a guided tour, anecdotes, humor, and all so relaxed that you really can enjoy the flight to the max. You can sense that he loves to be up in the air, and that carries over during the flight . Already thinking about a next trip with him! Can't be beaten !
