airways MEET THE STAFF
BY DAN LEWINGTON (GB-SOAC)
My name is Dan Lewington and I am the current Special Operations Assistant Coordinator for the United Kingdom and Ireland Division. I joined IVAO in 2012 along with many of my fellow Virtual Ministry of Defence Pilots and I have loved every minute of my time here. On IVAO, I am also an MTL Designer, meaning that I am responsible for maintaining the IVAO MTL Library and the MTL Catalogue. Outside IVAO I am a member of the Air Cadets, and have been for 5 years. During my time in the cadets, I have had the opportunity to fly in UK military aircraft such as the Chinook, Tutor and C-17. In September, I am due to start a degree in Aerospace Materials at the University of Sheffield and I hope to join the Royal Air Force in the future. If you have any questions about Special Operations or MTL, please donâ€™t hesitate to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org

This shown to be a very popular event and full ATC coverage was given by a team of staff and members. Throughout the next couple of months, IVAO United Kingdom & Ireland are looking to be very busy with the second Real Flight Event of this year and also an number of other events throughout the months to come. I would also like to congratulate our new Training Advisor 7, Wilm Hendrik Schulz, good luck in your new role.
