After an impromptu Cessna 152 flight sponsored by a family member I knew that I belonged in the sky.

Upon leaving school I enrolled for, and completed, my PPL at a flight school at Grand Central Airport, and very soon thereafter started my Commercial Pilot Licence. An instructors rating followed and upon my completion of the course I was offered employment at Central Flying Academy as a Grade III flight instructor . Whilst instructing an opportunity arose to purchase a Cessna 172 which I lovingly restored along with my partners in the venture. The aircraft was subsequently leased to a local flying school.

This ‘refurbishment exercise’ led to what is now Raw Aviation – we provide flexible leasing on a variety of aircraft.

Aviation is in my blood, and it is an honour to hopefully instil some of our passion for flight into the next generation of pilots.
