I spent 2020 helping aircrews navigate a constantly-changing set of regulations in a large Middle Kingdom-like country. Entry, quarantines, testing, Customs, quick turns, unexpected AOGs, ferry crews, Medevacs, quotas, and probably 5 or 6 major patterns of permissions in the last 11 months. The passengers needed help, too. The first 4 or 5 months getting out and then the last few months getting back in, again with the backdrop of regs changing from week to week.

I'm lucky in that this year I had a steady employment and my skills made me a more valuable part of our team than I might have been otherwise. Many colleagues from my previous job on the infrastructure side were not as lucky and the massive downturn in the worldwide aviation industry hit them hard, including almost certainly what would have been my position. For 2021, let's get some vaccines in arms and people back in the sky!

Late to the party (as always it seems)
I spent 2020 getting over a seemingly major medical issue to start the year.

Then off to Norway to partake in major exercises only to rapidly run for home when COVID kicked off. Which then turned into helping get crews and aircraft ready for deploying in support of HMG and the NHS. Finally got to contribute something by deploying to the Caribbean and supporting the British Overseas Territories over the summer.

Looking forward to having a quiet year in 21.

Calendar arrived, everybody took turn to enjoy the pictures.

The first pictures is so nice, unique lighting, uplifting life of the adventurer feeling.
Glad it comes without the inspirational title usually posted on top of such great shot.

Both arrived and the idea to surprise a friend was a Bullseye!

Thanks Ned

Calendar arrived, thank you very much and stay safe.

First and hopefully last snow this winter; G&T tastes much better when the sun is shining. But "no storm lasts forever"
