In his 10 years with 115 Dan has been responsible for the setting up and running of a superb Ground Flight suite, of 10 networked PCs. This suite allows cadets to learn to fly using Flight Simulator, and as they progress, to fly in formation with other cadets in the Ground Flight suite.

Earlier in the year Dan took up a new position as Air Operations Manager with the British Antarctic Survey, based in Cambridge. He is now relocating to Cambridge, to be closer to his work.
