Curator – Fleet Air Museum
After a series of short term Engineering positions, he joined the Fleet Air Arm Museum in 1981 as a junior restoration engineer. Served a five year craft apprenticeship in Mechanical Engineering and Fitting & Turning and took over the role of the Chief Engineer in 1990. His position is now the Curator of Aircraft at The FAAM. This role has allowed him to encourage some expanded thinking around the conservation practices connected with the museum’s aircraft and with the assistance of the FAAM’s Restoration Team have delivered some ground-breaking and world recognised restoration projects.
