John Turczak (Flybubble Team Pilot)

John Turczak is an experienced pilot from Sussex and is the Chief Coach of the Southern HG Club. 

I am a bit of a big kid at heart and still find the fact that I can fly a somewhat fantastic thing. I enjoy being in the air and experiencing a truly amazing activity that is fun, challenging and sometimes completely frustrating. It keeps me very active physically and mentally. I love the continual learning about new things and the joy of flying with others.
