Andrew started flying when paragliding was in its infancy. He qualified as an instructor in 1990 and gained the senior instructor rating in 1993. This was the year that he moved back to Dorset and set up Flying Frenzy. Throughout the 90's Andrew was active in the national and international paragliding competition scene, coming 4th in the British Nationals in '92. Nowadays Andrew prefers to mess around on the cliffs when not out instructing and has recently started learning some of the acro moves.
“I am often asked if I get frustrated always instructing when its flyable, but amazingly I don't – I always get so much out of teaching people to paraglide – from the first time students ever leave the ground to seeing more experienced flyers getting to grips with a new technique.”
