Andy has amassed a huge amount of experience in his aviation career. He joined the RAF after school and was selected to fly the Tornado GR1 based in Germany. A 4 year spell followed as an Instructor at RAF Valley flying the Hawk T1, where Andy was a Qualified Tactics, Flying and Weapons Instructor as well as a Central Flying School Accredited Examiner.
Andy then returned to the front-line on the Tornado GR4 and, to compliment his instructional duties, became an Instrument Rating Examiner and Air Test Pilot. With an inevitable ground tour looming, Andy moved to the Ministry of Defence in Whitehall where he worked in the Directorate for Targeting and Information Operations.
Andy retired from the RAF in 2008 and started working as a commercial pilot. After 5 years flying the Airbus A320, he moved on to fly the Airbus A380, which is his current role.
In his spare time, Andy is a volunteer pilot for the RAF Reserves and flies Air Cadets on air experience flights in a Grob Tutor.
