Jurisdiction and Applicable Law
PLEASE NOTE: Sim-Fly is an advocate for raising public awareness in relation to Aerotoxic, a form of poisoning that can occur on flights. For details of a recent incident please visit: http://www.stewartslaw.com/boeing-767-flight-number-xla-120-aerotoxic-poisoning.aspx and please feel free to discuss the matter further with our staff.
I hope you will find your Sim-Fly Norfolk experience both instructive and entertaining.
As you may know, I logged around 10,000 hours of flying but still enjoy sharing the simple pleasures of aviation with newcomers or those wishing to extend their flying skills and knowledge.
My career began with flying instruction in the 1970’s, I then flew aerial crop spraying aircraft in the UK, Kenya and South Australia for around seven years. I also pioneered aerial firefighting in South Australia in the 1980’s for several fire seasons in a De Havilland Beaver.
Believing that low flying was both insecure and potentially dangerous I converted to flying DC 3 Dakotas with Air Atlantique for two years and attended the Piper Alpha and Ocean Odyssey oil rig disasters.
By 1989 I wanted a secure flying job for the rest of my career so began to fly the BAe 146 four engine jet for TNT delivering freight around Europe at night.
However, within a few months in early 1990, my once excellent health was ruined by a mysterious neurological illness which I put down to ‘night flying’ and told no one, as I feared losing my job and letting my family down.
I kept night flying until 1998, but due to my further deteriorating health I decided to change to ‘day flying’ with Flybe on short haul passenger flying – still on the BAe 146.
Again, my ill health deteriorated still further until I was no longer fit to fly in 2005 and walked off airliners rather than risk my passenger’s lives.
At the age of 49 I was grounded with ‘chronic stress’ but in early 2006 was invited to take part in some toxic cabin air research by University College London and BALPA (British Airline Pilots Association) – this study of 27 pilots found that all of them, including me, had a cocktail of chemicals in our blood and underperformed on cognitive tests – in short, we had all be poisoned by toxic cabin air.
On 22nd May 2006 I made a Statement to the effect that I had been poisoned, but professional pilots’ sworn testimony is not believed. I would soon discover that I had been affected by ‘Aerotoxic Syndrome’, which had first been identified by scientists from the US, France and Australia in 1999 and is the ill health caused by exposure to toxic oil fumes in a confined space of any jet – apart from the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, in which the use of ‘bleed air’ has been engineered out, to avoid the poisoning issue.
On 18th June 2007 I founded the Aerotoxic Association Ltd. (www.aerotoxic.org) to publish public information and to assist other victims – both aircrew and passengers, including children.
Evidence of a single oil fume-event of 20 passengers’ ill health from 2007 can be viewed overleaf…PTO.
I founded Simulator Flying Ltd. in 2015 to allow me to continue to share flying with others and my eventual wish is to make franchises available to other grounded aerotoxic pilots and allow them to make a living from their only skill.
If you know any pilot, cabin crew or passenger who has become mysteriously ill after a single jet flight – please consider Aerotoxic Syndrome as a possible cause and help them.
We look forward to welcoming you to Sim-Fly Norfolk very soon!
Chairman and founder of Sim-Fly Norfolk and Aerotoxic Association Former BAe 146 Training Captain.
