    Andy Wyatt is widely known for his career as a Red Arrows Display Pilot and Royal Air Force Pilot. Having navigated some of the most hostile environments known to man, Andy has continually demonstrated his skills for teamwork, leadership, planning and operations.

    With years of experience on the front line, Andy now shares his experiences in the Royal Air Force and the life lessons he learnt along the way.

    Aged 18 years old, Andy made the life changing decision to enrol for the Royal Air Force, completing his training and being given the opportunity to fly the English Electric Lightning and intercept Russian aircraft during the Cold War.

    Andy rose through the ranks and was ultimately selected to be a pilot in the Red Arrows Display team. With the Red Arrows, Andy became the Hawk Squadron Commander, a Deputy Chief Flying Instructor and Hawk Fleet Manager. During his service, Andy was also given the opportunity to display Hawk, Vampire, Venom, Antonov An2, Hunter, Extra 300, Yak 52 and Boeing Stearman aircraft.

    Having enjoyed many successful years as part of the Royal Air Force and the RAF Aerobatic Team, Andy retired from the forces in 2014.

    However, Andy didn’t leave the skies for good, and went on to become the Captain of a Boeing 747 for British Airways.

    After an impressive 22 years in commercial aviation, Andy left British Airways and went on to become the Squadron Leader of The Honourable Company of Air Pilots. Currently he is the Chief Pilot for Longtail Aviation, a true testament to his knowledge of planes and the great blue skies.
