Who am I?

Hey everyone, and thanks for coming to The Humble Pilot. As an introduction, my name is Jean-Paul and I’m currently an airline captain for one of the largest airlines in Europe. I have been flying for over 12 years now and still, to this day, I love it!

Aside from flying, I love being creative. I have always been on the creative side of the spectrum, dabbling in music, dance, writing, and more recently, blogging. I find that getting pen on paper, or making a video about something that interests me, is a great release for all the thoughts and ideas that get caught up in my head.

I have a wonderful wife, who is the most beautiful, charismatic and funny woman I have ever met, and she has blessed us with 3 amazing children. To say that my life wouldn’t be the same without her is an understatement – she truly is my rock, soulmate and best friend.

What is The Humble Pilot?

The Humble Pilot is a blog designed for me to get my thoughts down on paper (or screen in this case), and hopefully give current and aspiring pilots, as well as the general public, as much information as I can when it comes to the world of aviation.

Training, lifestyle, technical information are just some of the topics that I will cover here. Also, if there is ever anything that someone would like me to talk about, just drop me an email and I’d be glad to create a post on that matter!

So… What now?

Now, all you have to do is browse The Humble Pilot and enjoy some of the blog posts that may interest you. I have tried to keep each post manageable in length, and technical details have been simplified, so anyone can gain something from the site. If you like what you read, please do consider subscribing. I’ll only ever send you notifications of new posts and the odd newsletter. In the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy the flight!
