Flying Blind

Flying a microlight to Australia with the blind adventurer, Miles Hilton-Barber.

In 2007, with just 12 hours notice, Brian was asked to accompany blind pilot Miles Hilton-Barber for the first section of his London to Australia microlight flight attempt.

Brian successfully flew Miles to Cyprus, before handing over to Richard Meredith-Hardy for the long-haul to Australia.

In 2009, all three pilots were awarded the Royal Aero Club’s Norton-Griffiths Trophy for this flight.
