Stuart joined YFS in the summer of 2019 and has extensive microlight experience. He works part time at York Flying School and spends the rest of the time crop spraying in North America in the truly enormous  PZL-Mielec M-18 Dromader



Eon started his career instructing before moving onto crop dusting. After having more scrapes than he cares to remember he got his first taste of airline flying with  Skyways Coach Air on the DC3.


Later he went on to fly the Viscount, SD360, F27, DC9, Fokker 70/100, 737 and A320 series. 


Forever disappointed with the roll rate of the Airbus he is now back in his element and instructs at York Flying School three days a week.
