Pete qualified as an instructor in 1991 and set up his own school on Southern sites in 1992. His calm and friendly attitude and his training trips and holidays abroad made Airsports Paragliding a great success. Over 30 years he has brought thousands of new people into the sport and he continues to run up and down Steyning Bowl to this day. Some of the many instructors he trained went on to start their own schools, pioneer new flying areas and compete internationally. His contribution to training new pilots to a high level of competence and safety has been huge.
