Mike will be speaking to us about the use of radio in aircraft navigation – a subject he is well versed in.
Mike has been a radio enthusiast since the age of 9, building his first crystal set at the age of 12 and passing the Radio Amateur exam at the age of 15. He has designed and built a number of popular Transceivers including several ‘Top Band’ rigs during his 50+ years involvement with Amateur Radio.
Mike has also been involved in aviation for 47 years, flying on Hercules, V Bombers and VC10s. He is also a flying instructor and examiner and spent 12 years with the CAA, partially as their Chief Radio Examiner. He was also the chief avionics instructor with RACAL Avionics.
With his vast experience in the subject, this will be very informative presentation on the subject of Radio Navigation. So if you would like to learn about VOR, NDBs, DME and a whole lot more, please join us on Thursday, 22nd January from 7pm at Pine Trees Community Centre.
