Popular Flying Instructor Jim Hammett Has Become Chief Flying Instructor

A FORMER aspiring Pilot has gone on to become Chief Flying Instructor at a company based at Bournemouth Airport.

Jim Hammett has worked his way up the Bournemouth Helicopters company after taking flying lessons in 2006, before studying across the UK and USA, to become one of the business’s flying instructors in 2011.

Ollie Pennington, managing director of Bournemouth Helicopters and Solent School of Flying, said that he was delighted that Jim had qualified for the new role.

He said His determination over the years has paid off for Jim, who is very popular with the student Pilots he instructs on a regular basis and people who take our one off Introductory Flights.

Jim from Plymouth, said he had always had an interest in Aviation and wanted to learn to fly Aeroplanes from a young age, taking inspiration from his father who started training for a Private Pilot’s Licence.

He said Whilst at the University of Hertfordshire as an Aerospace Engineering student, I had a trial lesson in an R22 helicopter and from that moment I knew I wanted to become a commercial Helicopter Pilot.

Recent Aviation Crashes and Mishaps makes all Worried

Reports today that an Air Algerie Flight 5017 with 116 people aboard has gone missing comes amid a spate of bad Aviation news. Although the crashes may have come a few days apart, industry experts say that's nothing more than a coincidence and that air travel remains safe.

• Exactly one week ago, Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down in a rebel-held area of eastern Ukraine. Flight 17, carrying 280 passengers and 15 Air Crew members, crashed after being hit by what U.S. officials suspect was a Surface - to - Air Missile launched from an area controlled by Russian-backed separatists.

• The downing of the Aircraft was the second tragedy to strike the airline in recent months. The disappearance of Flight 370 on March 8 remains a mystery. The Aircraft was traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. It vanished with 239 passengers and Air Crew aboard. Despite massive search efforts, the Aircraft's whereabouts remain unknown.

Disappearances raise concern on Flying over trouble spots

• Ten people survived a crash landing Wednesday that killed 48 other passengers as their Aircraft failed to reach the runway on a Taiwanese holiday island hit hard by a typhoon. The TransAsia Airways Aircraft was trying to make an emergency landing in stormy weather.

• The FAA earlier this week barred U.S. Flights into and out of Ben Gurion International in Tel Aviv, Israel. (The ban was lifted late Wednesday.) The agency stopped Flights after a rocket was reported near the Airport.
