Apparently, it was so easy to fly that after takeoff for his display, he simply set the throttle and didn't touch it again until on final however, by this time he would be so relaxed that he might forget to select gear down, (I think he'd done so once when practicing at Warton) so could we (ATC) remind him every time to save embarassment!!
