Welcome

Student Pilots

In May 2020, I launched an initiative for Student Pilots called AimingPoint. I'm hoping to use it to share experience/insight from my professional pilot training, along with various bits of topical news and other updates.

Flight Instructors

In December 2020 I started a new organisation for instructors in the UK, after being unable to find an existing one that wasn't US-based. The goal is, through Facebook, to enable instructors across the UK to work together, using each others' experience to improve their teaching.

Professional Pilot Qualifications

I hold a frozen ATPL which comprises the following:

  • CPL: Commercial Pilot's Licence

  • IR-SP-ME: Single-Crew Multi-Engine Instrument Rating

  • ATPL Theoretical Knowledge: For future issue of an Air Transport Pilot's Licence

  • MCC: Multi-Crew Cooperation Course

  • JOC: Jet Orientation Course

  • Advanced UPRT: Advanced Upset Prevention and Recovery Training

I am incredibly proud that each of these were first series passes. More recently I also received my Flight Instructor rating allowing me to teach the PPL and Night Rating.

Community Management

I hold Facebook Blueprint Certification as a Community Manager, and am using this qualification to build various aviation related communities online, with the sole interest of improving safety in aviation through encouragement of proper training that continues far beyond license issue, openly sharing advice, discussing current affairs, recent accident investigations and so on.

The Facebook Certified Community Manager certification exam measures the advanced comprehension and strategic application of best practices and standards for online community management. People who take this exam possess the required digital skills to build, manage, and grow online communities, and have knowledge of the policies and regulations related both to their own verticals, as well as platform policies and regulations.
