Martin is qualified both as a medical doctor and a solicitor. Martin learned to fly hang gliders in 1996 and was formally elected to the BHPA Executive Council in 2000 to look after the insurance brief, a responsibility he continues to hold. He was elected Chairman of the Association from 2004 to 2012 and is the BHPA’s longest serving Chairman. His period of tenure has seen many challenges and changes in the Association and with Martin at the helm, a generally smooth passage has been completed. In 2012 he became Vice-Chairman, a position he still holds today.
