Helping a Hero

BCFT had the pleasure of welcoming Tan James Anthony back to the training centre this morning with a film crew in tow!

James is the youngest Pilot to have flown around the world, completing the flight in 2013 on a Cessna 210T. What makes this even more special is that he completed his Instrument Rating with Team Blackadder back in 2011, gaining the important skills essential for such a unique adventure.

James was always a hardworking, friendly student, who clearly wasn’t lacking in confidence! He also completed a slightly shorter flight soon after training with us at BCFT, departing London and arriving after several stops in Malaysia in a Cirrus SEP.

James between filming even found time to get airborne in Scenic Air Tours Ltd’s Grumman AA-5 along with Senior BCFT Flight Instructor Gary Ashworth, or as we call him Blackadder 03.

A great morning was had by all! Once again it was fantastic to see James, hearing the stories first hand!
