Why did you want to become a pilot?

Becoming an airline pilot wasn’t a childhood dream. I didn’t want to go into banking and a Friend’s father inspired me to look at this career. I am very glad he did.

Self-funded (ouch!)

Was training a breeze or did you find it a challenge?

The usual ups and downs: some bits easier than others.

What was most challenging?

The volume of information for exams.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Flying over the alps is pretty epic….but there’s a long list!

What is most challenging about your job?

Bad weather and delays: tends to focus the mind but that’s a good thing!

Which of the Pilot Competencies are of most interest to you and why?

All of them! Workload management is affected by all the others though.
