I’m proud to be a regular contributor to Flyer, the UK’s leading general aviation magazine. My subject area is helicopters, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share my enthusiasm with readers in my monthly column, Whirlybird. I really enjoy writing about what I’ve learned from gaining my PPL(H) and inspiring others to try rotary flying.
In the example of my work linked to below, I wrote around 10,000 words across four articles for a dedicated helicopter supplement to be included with the magazine, as well as writing the introductory editorial. This involved not just calling on my own experience of flying helicopters, but also interviewing numerous other helicopter pilots, owners and dealers to collate information that would be useful to prospective helicopter pilots and owners.
The ‘Live Preview’ link jumps straight to one of my articles, which includes a photo of me flying, but pages 3 and 12-32 are all written by me, so feel free to flick through. Other examples of my work include:
- A Tale of Two Westlands
- Test flying the Curti Zefhir microlight helicopter
- Paramotoring: taking the first steps
- ‘From good to great’ with Robinson’s heli pilot safety course
- Yeovil: Home of British Helicopters
- Historic Helicopters
