Ten Random Questions for… Lawrie Noctor

Originally from the Isle of Wight, Lawrie Noctor lives and flies in the Peak District, UK. A member of a flying family (his dad, uncle and cousin all fly), he was connected to flying from a young age. He was an instructor at Airways Airports for many years, but having a ‘proper’ job now means he can only get out to fly for pleasure these days. Having won the British Paragliding Cup in 2014, he’s really got into comps and recently broke the UK declared tandem record with fellow young hotshot Theo Warden.

In this podcast Lawrie answers questions on the secret of his flying success, which flying site/area is top of his flying bucket list and which flying-related book he would recommend most.
