Aviation News >> Global Aviation Resource and ‘Get in to Flying’ join forces

‘Get in to Flying’ (www.getintoflying.co.uk) launched in July and is the brainchild of Lt Jonathan Duke, a Sea King search and rescue pilot with 771 Naval Air Squadron based at RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall.

While Jonathan is a professional aviator, he is also a keen flyer in his spare time, with many hours as a Grob Tutor air experience pilot, and flies numerous other types, including an Extra, whenever time allows.

‘Get in to Flying’ is targeted at anyone interested in learning more about flying of any kind, whether it is for fun, such as gaining a Private Pilot's Licence, or for those looking towards a potential career with the military or as a commercial pilot. The site also aims to promote the activities of the British General Aviation community to a wider audience.

Jonathan will retain editorship of the website and will be adding content to the site himself. He will also be drawing upon his own contacts from within the aviation world to write about their own specialist areas and would be delighted to hear from anyone who would like to contribute, no matter what their expertise or experience.

Karl Drage, Editor of Global Aviation Resource, said:

“I knew that Gareth (Stringer) had met Jon at the Dawlish Air Show this year and that he was impressed with his eagerness to promote air-mindedness and encourage people of all ages and from all walks of life to explore the many avenues in to aviation. That is something that we feel there should be a lot more of, and I hope that this partnership can give the site the visibility it needs to succeed. We have a number of pilots on the GAR team too, so hopefully they will be able to contribute to the site as well.”

Jonathan Duke, said:

This is really great news for ‘Get in to Flying’. It's been a work-in-progress for some time now, and to attract this kind of partnership so soon after launch is a real boost for the site. It's all about demonstrating that achieving your goals in aviation need not be an impossible aim. Whether it is fixed-wing flying, rotary flying, para-motoring or gliding, to name but a few, eventually I want the site to examine all the different ways of getting airborne and provide news and views that might affect anyone who flies.”

An in-depth interview with Jonathan has already been recorded and will appear in the next episode of Xtended, the aviation podcast produced by XTP Media in conjunction with GAR and The Royal Aeronautical Society.

Meanwhile, ‘Get in to Flying’ branding and links will be added to Global Aviation Resource, and its content promoted via GAR’s extremely popular social media feeds.
