Glenn is congratulated by RNAS Yeovilton’s Commanding Officer, Commodore Niall Griffin MBE
Glenn joined the Royal Navy at age 17 as an Artificer Apprentice and after working on Sea Harriers and Lynx helicopters, went on to pursue his dream to become a pilot. “Although I loved my time as an Artificer, I desperately wanted to fly,” said Glenn. “Being appointed ‘plane captain’ of a Sea Harrier FRS1 in HMS Illustrious as an 18 year old apprentice is still one of my proudest moments, along with the award of my Wings in 1992.’
Glenn celebrates with colleagues from the Naval Flying Standards Flight
One of the Naval Flying Standards Flight at RNAS Culdrose and an instructor with 750 Naval Air Squadron, Glenn is a volunteer pilot with Navy Wings giving up much of his spare time and many weekends to fly the Swordfish. This weekend he will be flying the Swordfish during the Battle of the Atlantic commemorative events in Liverpool.
