Kevin realised his passion for flying in 2006 when he took a 90 minute experience flight from Perth Airport in a flexwing microlight. Of that experience he says, “It was just superb! My friend and I had spoken about the possibility of learning to fly while we were at work, 100 miles offshore on an oil rig. When we came home on leave, we gave it a go and I’ve never looked back. I gained my National Private Pilot’s License (NPPL) that year and bought a share in a flexwing microlight. I flew her far and wide and had some great times especially when visiting the West Coast of Scotland. Now I get to share my passion for flying with others.”
Two years later Kevin had the opportunity to experience a flight in a Gyrocopter and decided to take up the training for his PPL(G) and went on to join the Gyrocopter Experience group of flying instructors and currently operates Scotland’s premier gyroplane training organisation. Kevin also added the Flexwing and Fixed Wing instructor ratings to his portfolio and is fully qualified to offer flight training and experience flights in our range of aircraft.

Richard started flying in 1968 with the Air Training Corps. A gliding instructor for many of his early years, he soon took up the offer of a commercial helicopter course with British Airways. Richard further qualified for a fixed wing PPL during the same period and became the proud owner of a Luscombe Silvaire tail-dragger in 1990.
Having worked on the North Sea as a helicopter pilot for over 40 years, accumulating some 30,000 hours in the air, he took up Gyrocopter flying in 2012 and became a fully qualified instructor in 2018. Following his retirement from the North Sea, he now flies as part of the Alba Airsports flying instructors team.
