On a recent trip to the UK I got in contact with Jon, a fellow pilot and owner of the YouTube Channel ‘The Flying Reporter‘ to organise a private flight out of Biggin Hill Airport.
Jon flies Piper Cherokees and is often posting footage over the county of Kent, which is where I grew up. So I contacted Jon to see if we could take a scenic flight over the places I knew when I was growing up.
We overflew my old house in East Hill (near Sevenoaks), Brands Hatch racing circuit, my school town of Dartford on the River Thames, then down to Hastings on the coast before heading back to base.

A big thanks to Jon for his time and Captaincy on the day. I won’t spoilt the ending but if you’re a fan of aviation then make sure you watch to the end for a real British flying treat.
