His test flying spanned 35 years and more than types of aircraft, first as an experimental test pilot at Farnborough; then 20 years as airworthiness certification test pilot for the UK Civil Aviation Authority on light aeroplanes and seaplanes, before turning freelance.
His company specializes in cross-fertilization between aircraft and marine craft design and operation.
