Message from Charlie

Some want to fly because they heard it was great fun, others because they are seeking to make it their career. Whatever your reasons are for wanting to take to the air, it is definitely an experience you will never forget! The intensity and freedom of flight, and the skills which are acquired and developed, are to mention but a few perks of learning how to fly. For the past 41 years I have made a career out of flying and have never worked a day in my life. The promise of elevating myself above the earth in a fixed or rotor wing aircraft is enough to make me rush off to my office in the sky every day. To strap any size air vehicle to my back is such a privilege that I dare not miss an opportunity. I live my dream, sometime upside down, but I promise you, the earth is round…
