My father Ray Mockford was my inspiration to start this business. He passed away in 2015 and his best friend was Teddy . When I was building the business and simulators they would both sat on a chair giving opinions on how I should do things and generally having a laugh.


Now that my Dad is no longer with us his best friend has decided that he will spend his time with me. He still sits on a chair and looks quizzically at me when I am working on the simulators.  You may meet him when you come to fly and if he feels safe he may even join you on your flight.
