Richard Foster

Chief Flying Instructor

Richard Foster learnt to fly light aircraft in the USA some 15 years ago, he migrated over to microlights and has flown many types, from the grass-roots AX3 through to the hot ship CT and pretty much everything in between. To indulge his passion for flying he now spends his days teaching nervous newbies the art of microlighting, complaining about weather forecasts and drinking quite heroic amounts of coffee.

For many years Richard has been fanatical about microlighting and this love of flying has taken him on many adventures far and wide.

Chris Childs

Instructor / Examiner

Chris is a highly experienced microlight instructor with over 7000 hours of dual instruction. Chris is also an examiner with over 30 years of experience in this branch of aviation.
