Dave is a former RAF fighter pilot, flying the Harrier, he served all over the world on land and at sea operating from Royal Navy aircraft carriers, carried out multiple combat tours and an exchange tour to Canada to fly the F18 with the Canadian Armed Forces.
His fighter flying career ended when he ejected, suffering a broken back, fractured eye socket, smashed ankle and hip but is recovering well with the help of his fabulous wife and 2 lads age 13 and 11. Being a keen sportsman helped enormously and Dave likes to keep himself busy with sea swimming, cycling and running alongside scuba diving and skiing when possible.
