I'm an active flight simulation enthusiast with over 20 years experience and still enjoy it as much as ever. As a Lincolnshire lad, I was born at RAF Nocton Hall and spent my childhood at RAF Scampton dreaming of being a pilot. So I like to think that aviation is well and truly in my blood. I also enjoy iRacing and I am a very proud former iRacing Indy 500 winner! (I tell everybody this). My other hobbies include magic and playing the guitar pretty badly.
