He talks abour his flying career, - which included hang-gliding from the world's highest waterfall and barely surviving a white-out in Iceland, - and explains why there is no reason to upset about the demise of the flexwing.
We also talk about learning to fly abroad: does it really prepare you for piloting your aircraft in the UK airspace?
