Been following you your YouTube channel for a while and really enjoy your productions. They come across as very high value, well done.

As a professional pilot do you still fly for pleasure on your days off? A friend of mine flys for BA and when he has a long layover he try’s to arrange to rent a GA and go and explore some of the local area.

Oh! I got one more.

What’s the end game? I know you’re a young lad with your whole aviation career ahead of you. Where do you see yourself retiring from? Is it long haul? Cargo? Corporate? Or is it in aviation at all?

Thanks and safe travels!
