Chris completed 30 years as an RAF ATC officer, qualified as Tower, Area, Instructor and Examiner, achieving the rank of Wing Commander. He was part of the team that designed the controller interfaces for the Swanwick ATC Centre, and commanded the military unit for the transfer of operations and first operational years. He was later responsible for the Swanwick en-route and London Terminal operations with NATS.
Chris joined Micro Nav in 2010 as an ATC Subject Matter Expert, and in 2013 took up the role of Customer Domain Manager, providing post-project delivery support to customers. Since 2019, he is Head of ATM Simulation Solutions, leading an experienced team of ex-controllers, providing essential operational expertise and support to all areas of the organisation.
When he's not supporting a customer on site, Chris is a keen aeromodeller (especially WWII radio-controlled flying scale aircraft), or on the golf course, playing to a single-figure handicap.
