It's the time of year when we tend to do less flying (certainly here in the UK) as it's cold and the weather doesn't play ball so often. Don't let that put you off - you'll be better prepared for the season ahead if you keep current and make sure you don't forget every...

I always find it difficult to keep motivated (and current) in the winter. We’ve been quite lucky with the weather so far in November, but it’s already starting to get cold and the mud is only just around the corner.

Every year is the same, I intend to keep flying, using...

Well our European adventure is over for this year. It has been a real mixed bag and we've learnt a lot on the way. Congratulations to the medal winners (and particularly the new European Champion and Vice-champion) and to the rest of the competitors! Thank you also to...

We're delighted to announce our new partner, Total, as you might have noticed from the new logos on our aircraft. We're really looking forward to working with them as we travel to the European Championships in the Czech Republic and in preparation for the World Advance...

Our national championships are over for another year. I am delighted to hand over the mantle, of British Advanced Aerobatic Champion, to Paul Tomlinson who flew beautifully and, what's more, had to complete all of his programmes in one day! Well done Paul, it's about t...

On Saturday night, Mark Rawlings joined me to take some photos of the Cap with unusual lighting. I believe it's called light painting and a little while ago he suggested we should give it a try once the aircraft was back - well this was that attempt. 

We were lucky...

A little while ago, I was lucky enough to have a flight with the Red Arrows, and they have kindly given me permission to write about it.

Flying in a fast jet has been on my bucket list since I was a child. When I was told, aged 16, that my eyesight would not allow me to...

Today I got a rather surprising email. There are a set of awards called the #BeAGameChanger awards run by the Women's Sports Trust. They are intended to recognise people and organisations who have done the most to progress women's sport. I was lucky enough to be nomina...

We've just had great news - our lovely Cap will shortly be ready for us to fly again! She's had a lot of work, especially as we took the plunge to get the engine overhauled. It was a big decision but we think it was the right one - let's hope we notice the difference!...

Yesterday we had an awesome piece of news - our engine is ready! 

We have been getting some work done on our aircraft and this has included getting our engine overhauled. It hadn't quite reached TBO but it wasn't far off and we knew that she was a little down on power a...
