Geoff started flying at Biggin Hill before going on to join the RAF whilst at University. His first tour was flying Whirlwind helicopters on Search & Rescue at RAF Leuchars, during which he was awarded two immediate Queens Commendations. He then became a Flying Instructor initially on fixed wing before returning to helicopters to instruct on Search & Rescue. 

He remained instructing and examining, holding the RAFs prestigious A2 instructor ratings for both helicopters and fixed wing, before “retiring” from the RAF in 1988. On leaving the RAF Geoff worked as a commercial pilot flying VIP charters, pleasure flying, loadlifting, firefighting, pipeline and powerline patrols, and as a helicopter instructor and examiner.

Geoff now specialises in providing helicopter instructor courses. He has trained over 200 commercial pilots and instructors, flies ten types of helicopter and has more than 22,000 hrs flying including over 15,000 instructional hours. He is also the author of bestselling book, "Helicopter Aerodynamics Made Simple". Geoff is highly respected in the helicopter industry, and you will come away from this course feeling privileged to have engaged with such a knowledgeable and seasoned pilot.
