Aviation legend Captain Eric Melrose ‘Winkle’ Brown CBE, DSC, AFC, KCVSA, PhD Hon FRAeS, RN will be speaking at HeliTech International on the 8th October, 2015 at ExCeL London.

Named “Britain’s Greatest Pilot” by the BBC, Captian Eric “Winkle” Brown will be the key-note speaker during The EHEST Safety Workshop.

A former Royal Navy officer and test pilot, he has flown 487 different types of aircraft, more than anyone else in history. He also holds the world record for the most aircraft carrier landings and is the Fleet Air Arm’s most decorated living pilot.

He was also the first pilot to land on an aircraft carrier with a twin-engined aircraft and he was also a pioneer of helicopter flying, and developed many of the techniques that we use today.

The Safety Workshop is free to attend, however early registration is recommended as spaces are expected to fill up quickly.
