The Seven Ages of a Pilot

Family and friends recently held a memorial celebration at Black Mountains gliding club of the life of the late Dr Peter Saundby, including a day of flying and an evening of reflection and socialising. It was observed that Peter would have been delighted to have seen that all recreational pilots may now make use of a pilot medical declaration. He would also continue to advise caution; whether using a class 1, 2 or a self-declaration, all pilots must honestly monitor their own health and only fly if fit to do so. And our fellow club pilots can help us understand our own limitations.

‘The Seven Ages of a Pilot’ written several years ago by Peter and published by GASCo is a helpful reminder to all of us.
