Andy Oliver has been a flexwing pilot for more than 10 years, during which time he has contributed greatly to microlighting both at national and club level. He has carried out a great many long distance tours of the UK and Europe and has encourage others to do the same by writing about his exploits in Microlight Flying magazine under his nom de plume ‘The Journeyman Balladeer’. He has led tours of less experience pilots around France and has organised and led fly-outs in the UK to encourage less experience pilots to ‘stretch their wings’. Andy has also served as Chairman of his local club, the Devon and Somerset Microlights, restructuring their finances and preparing plans for a permanent clubhouse. He is an excellent ambassador for UK sport aviation in general and microlighting in particular.
