Aviation enthusiast & Lets Fly author Matthew C Martino praised the increasing use of technology within the aviation industry and he personally vowed to support future initiatives that concentrate on technology research and training within the aviation industry, the 21year spoke out at Orlando Executive Airport on Tuesday afternoon (29th July) as he returned to Florida from New York.
Martino completed a fleet inspection at the airport in which he was shown various business aircraft including Cessna trainer aircraft in which he conducted a full walk-around and tested safety measures within the aircraft. Martino said ‘I’m very impressed with the high level of security on the aircraft and the safety standards that are shown by my counterparts across the waters and I have learnt a thing or two which I will share with British flight schools upon my return’.
Let's Fly author Martino runs London based aviation consultancy firm Lets Fly Academy which consults in pilot training and aviation logistics and the firm is set to open a retail arm in early 2015 which will offer pilot equipment and books.
It seems Martino’s efforts to raise awareness in the US are off to a good start and the 21year old was later seen on the outskirts of Orlando Executive Airport posing for a photo-shoot for a new iPad technology that’s being tested which can control remote aircraft. Martino praised the new wave of technology saying ‘I think its unfair for anyone in aviation to attend training courses as there will always be something new to learn, This new generation of technology within aviation is absolutely perfect and I look forward to being part of it’.
The 21year old who is on a 17day visit to the US will spend the latter part of his visit attending meetings and visiting local airfields in Florida, he is also due in Miami and Tampa on film producing duties.
