Started flying in 1996 ish. Started as a bet in the pub but then quickly took over my life and Ive never looked back.

I was fortunate to finish uni and found myself in digs with an old hang glider pilot who inspired me to start my Pilgrimage.

Started competition flying in 2004 and realised it was a great way to accellerate my learning. I have since become a great advocate for anyone at any level to try to enter comps. I wish I had started earlier.!
Recent years have demonstrated that some new pilots can progress extremly fast and do things they never expected so soon just by being at the comps and joining the Sports Class, sometimes doing better than the Veterans.
