BVM welcomes Nick Smith
prestigious team of field reps.
Nick's R/C experience encompasses slope soaring, pattern flying,
helicopters and most recently BVM Jets. Here is Nick in his own words:
It was my interest in model aircraft, that
took me into aviation as a career, initially as an aircraft maintenance
engineer, and then as a pilot. I currently fly the Airbus A340 for Virgin
not at work, I enjoy model jet flying, and regularly attend the UK Jet meetings
and indeed some of the Jet Rallies in the USA - taking with me my BVM Bandit in
a Jet Case. Flying a model jet is a model flying experience like no other, and
it's thanks to David Gladwin that I got my first taste of model turbine flying
(he introduced me to model turbine flying a few years ago, allowing me to fly
one of his JPX powered models)
. since then jets have dominated my model
flying activities; it's so rewarding to be able build, fly and maintain, your
own model jet!
performance is superb, and in my opinion, to operate and fly a model jet well,
requires quite a structured approach (or what I call the whole package), very
similar to that of full size; that's what makes them so rewarding to fly.
Anyone who has owned a
BVM Jet will know what I mean when I talk of the 'whole package'. I now feel
honored to be invited to join the list of BVM Reps, so, if I can help you enjoy
success in this sport/hobby, then please feel free to contact me or catch me at
a Jet meet.
