:: Head of Operations ::
Malcolm qualified as a driving instructor in 1960 becoming the youngest Ministry of Transport approved instructor in the UK. In 1975 he turned his attention to flying and in six months gained his Private Pilot Licence. In the 80's he trained as an aircraft engineer and an instructor as well as gaining the night and IMC ratings, and also became a CAA Approved Airworthiness Test Pilot.
In the 1990s Malcolm was attracted by competition flying and won countless awards in navigation and precision flying events, eventually being granted his FIA Competition Licence enabling him to start Royal Aero Club handicapped air racing in 2006. After several podium visits he won the 2011 King's Cup, originally presented by King George V in the 1920s as the first ever award for an aviation contest. Malcolm is seen here receiving the cup from HRH Prince Andrew Duke of York.
Malcolm has run his own maintenance business and helped to run various flight schools, whilst amassing approximately 5,000 flight hours.
