My passion for aviation first began with my first flight at the age of 14 with the Air Cadets flying a Grob Tutor. Many more successive flights with the Air Cadets soon made me realise that I wanted flying to be a career and looked into many career options. Outside of school from the age of 15 to 18 I pursued additional flying opportunities such as gliding and motor gliding. I was given the rare opportunity during my A levels to complete a motor gliding scholarship with the Air Cadets teaching me many of the basic flying skills and ending with a very exciting solo flight. The opportunities I received from the Air Cadets over a four year period were exceptional in providing me with crucial inter-personal skills, driving me towards becoming a professional pilot and I recommend this and similar organisations to others searching for an adventure. During my A levels I also completed the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award provided by Pershore High School staff which taught me how to work effectively in a team and lead a group in unusual situations, skills which have been vital in my progression to becoming an airline pilot and which have proved vital selling points during interviews since.

I took my GCSE’s at Pershore High School in 1999. I then went on to study for a GNVQ in Health and Social Care at Pershore Sixth Form, and then onto the University of Worcester to study Primary Education with a specialism in Early Years, where I graduated in 2004, and later returned in 2010 to complete my Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS) qualification. I have worked in the Early Years education sector for the past 13 years, including schools, nurseries, after school and holiday club provision. My first job role was working in a large Infant school in Norwich, Norfolk and my last role was based at RGS Springfield (Worcester,) at their onsite Nursery.
