My name is Norman and this is a blog that rotates around aviation, the Airline world and anything related that interests me. I am a pilot (Captain) currently flying the Boeing 777 for a major UK carrier. I consider myself to be a lucky guy, I seldom regard flying as work. I am fortunate again to have lived and flown through a remarkable era in aviation, working within an aerobatic team, flying aerial survey, paramilitary operations in the Middle East, air taxi and charter flying before returning to a more conventional flying life with the airlines based in the UK. Scheduled long-haul operations worldwide have shown me vast continental and oceanic tracts that cover our beautiful planet, a privilege I never take for granted.
Blogs are a little beguiling, are they are a form of vanity publishing or a great vehicle to exercise a writing mind? Who knows, but we all seem to agree that they are fun and mostly worth the effort. For as long as I enjoy the process, I will blog.
If you feel inclined please add your thoughts as comments get stuck in, you won’t offend.
