Robin Davies Robin was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Lancaster University having previously studied for an MSc in Materials, at the same institution. However, his passion for aviation, flying and everything aeronautical began to emerge and his first job was as a flight engineer on heavy jet aircraft. Following this he moved into corporate/business jets and became a HS-125 pilot on a Presidential flight in Africa. After a further move to the Middle East and then the Far East he returned to Europe. However, the financial crisis was biting and business jets were considered a nonessential luxury. He then turned to combining both his passions; teaching and aviation and became an SME teaching AGK subjects at ATPL level to both fixed wing and rotary pilots. He has even taught a future Monarch! After a few years he moved to British Airways as a simulator and technical instructor. Initially on the 787 and later adding the Queen of the skies, the 747 to his list of aircraft. A few years on and Robin added the 737 and the 757/767 to his expanding list of aircraft. Meanwhile, as an aside Robin has spent the last 17 years involved in Flight Safety and recently been actively involved with the 737 MAX Return to Service consultation. He also has links to Universities across Europe and their aviation/transport departments and assesses aeronautical research papers and gives lectures. At the end of 2019 he was introduced to ELT for aviation and has since qualified as an ELR. He is also a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society. When time permits his other interest involves classic and historic Volkswagen cars.
