Simon Jeffrey Simon first got into aviation when he was 12 years old. After a few lessons on a Cessna 150 he decided that flying would be an important part of his future. At the age of 25 he dabbled with gliding before taking the plunge into microlighting. After gaining his licence in 2000, he became a regular flyer at Insch, Nr Aberdeen and later at Perth Airport.

As a keen pilot Simon gained his JAR PPL and night rating, but eventually decided to stick with microlights and to become an instructor. Whilst working for Pegasus France he has become a knowledgable instructor with over 3000 hours of training experience in both flex and fixed wing aircraft.

Recently Simon has taken up hang gliding and enjoys soaring over the local mountains on his time off.
