Ken joined the LAA in January 1991. He oversees the 400 strong network of LAA inspectors who go out and visit hombuilt aircraft throught the UK. He also runs the 'Permit to Fly' renewal system for LAA aircraft. Ken ensures all the necessary information about each type of aircraft is shared between inspectors.
Half of the LAA's inspectors are licensed engineers in their normal jobs whilst the others either work weekends or are retired.
