Dave Hands – Events Co-ordinator

Dave HandsI live in Oxfordshire with my long term partner and have two grown children. I’m a Senior Design Engineering consultant in the automotive industry and have worked all over the world.

I’ve been a private pilot most of my life having been a member of the British Gliding Team 3 times, a flying instructor, sheep farming microlight pilot in Australia, Power Pilot and flown hot air balloons. My greatest achievement in flying is having an equal number of landings as I do take offs.

My family connection with the Typhoon is through my father who was an engine flight test engineer for Napier , helping to develop the Sabre in a specially rigged Warwick Bomber test aircraft. This passion for flight and engineering was passed to me through him and I want to experience the same pride as he did when he saw Hawker Typhoons fly.

I want to learn more about the Typhoon as I never asked enough questions of my father when he was alive. The HTPG has the resources to satisfy all of questions now and in the future.
