About me

Gender MALE
Location The Eden Valley, Westmorland, United Kingdom
Introduction I retired from the rat race (senior manager in a telecoms company - no, not BT!) in 2001 and now live in the lovely Eden Valley, formerly in Westmorland but, since the 1970s thanks to Ted Heath, now known as Cumbria. I took up flying shortly after I retired and have almost 1000 hours total flying time, mostly in my kit-built Sportcruiser, G-JONL and my previous aircraft, Piper Warrior, G-JLIN. I've been a radio amateur for fifty years with the call sign G3WGV and am a keen Morse code (CW) operator. I founded the Summits on the Air programme in 2002. Other interests include mountaineering, computer programming and classical music, especially the pipe organ.
