My condolences and best wishes to his family. I owe him a great deal: my first attempts at asymmetric on the 737 course were a disaster! Alan's calm, patient and expert instruction saved the day - and probably my career. A great loss.

Gave me my command after 5 trips on command course. Flight into Reus went well - his comment, "I will fly it home".
Thats when I knew I had made it !
A quiet unassuming, but very effective trainer who always left you with a little more knowledge.
A sad loss - RIP Alan.
