General Aviation Interests
Dr Richard Beatty is a Private Pilot & flies a Cessna 172 from Archerfield.
The PPL was first gained in 2009 in the UK & subsequently converted to the Australian PPL following a full flight test in 2013.
He requires a class 2 medical every 2 years and therefore understands first-hand the anxiety that aviation medicals can cause. Thankfully, most issues can be resolved without any gaps in flying provided that the pilot and The DAME work together.
His motivation is to provide a prompt and professional service whilst enjoying a banter with fellow aviators.
