The Flying Reporter

Inspirational flying adventures, features, reviews and GA news on YouTube

Hello from The Flying Reporter.  I’m a private pilot and former BBC TV news reporter.  I travel the UK and Europe making inspirational flying videos, sharing my adventures and learning points on YouTube.   I fly a 1977 PA28 Piper Turbo Arrow 3 which is based at Redhill near London Gatwick Airport.


My website contains FAQs, details of the services I provide and an opportunity for you to support my work by joining The Flying Reporter Supporters’ Club.  For just £4.99 per month you can access bonus content, watch my episodes advert-free and book a 1-1 zoom session with me.  You can try the club for free.

I’m setting myself a big flying challenge this spring.  On 16 March 2024 I’ll be completing a Flying Reporter Meet-up Marathon, a race around middle England, meeting as many of you as possible in one day!


On 16 March, there are exactly 12 hours between sunrise and sunset, and I plan to visit 12 airfields in 12 hours, raising £1200 for the Aerobility charity.  Join me on the day, and help me raise money for Aerobility by giving a donation in return for a selfie and a signed photo.


I’m looking for help with ground support during the challenge.  Let me know if you can help.
