14th June – 7.30 Phil Holt from High Flying Talks That’s Air Show Business!
Phil has been involved in this business from the “ops” side for 35 years and there is much more to it than you’d realise. The “punters” will not know that planning had started well over a year before and involve some 20+ organisations. Phil has served as a Flying Display Director, been a member of Flying Control Committees, choreographed display programmes and served on Air Traffic Control teams. He worked for CAA/ NATS as an ATCA, ATCO, instructor and Examiner for almost 40 years. Planning, pilot qualifications, public safety and airspace requirements are just some of the topics covered.
