Paul Phelan Writes – ‘Happier Landings’

Here is a link to Paul Phelan’s latest article, ‘Happier Landings’. Paul is a veteran aviation journalist, who has closely followed the steady progress of the Jacobson Flare since attending David Jacobson’s Cairns presentation of the Australia-wide CASA Flight Safety Seminar Series, in 1997. He wrote the articles published in Australian Flying and Flight International magazines, in early 1998. He now operates his freelance blog page, Pro Aviation – Sharp End Aviation News and Features

In his recent research, Paul conversed with Air Commodore John Chesterfield RAAF (Ret’d), our ‘Godfather to the Jacobson Flare’, who is one our staunchest supporters and practitioners.
