Whilst training for instrument rating, I made a trip to Vestmannaeyjar, a series of islands located off the South coast of Iceland. Vestmannaeyjar Airport is a two-runway asphalted airport located on Heimaey, the largest and only inhabited island in the archipelago. After carrying an NDB-approach and subsequent missed approach procedure for runway 03, I briefly gave the controls to my instructor to snap a shot of this amazing place.

After training as a Researcher in Structural Biology and Biophysics at Oxford, I am undergoing a professional reconversion to combine my love of flying with a sheer passion for exploration. I am currently based in Keflavik, Iceland, and have just obtained my Commercial Pilot License with IR/ME, ATPL theory and MCC. My goal is to fly STOL operations, primarily in the polar regions.
