A former RAF and and airline pilot, Chris served the Thames Valley club as Safety Officer and Chief Coach for several years. Recognising a need to make it easier to submit CANP requests, he created a spreadsheet to facilitate the process. When he began adding other clubs’ sites, Pete Logan offered to convert the spreadsheet into a web utility while Chris balanced BHPA members’ needs with military requirements. In its first year the app processed 624 CANP requests; following promotion in early 2020 submissions quadrupled, despite Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns. His latest project is a Thames Valley remote weather station.
