About Adrian Ryan
Adrian Ryan is an electronic and mechanical engineer, recently retired having worked as the Chief Engineer for sateliite communications in both the hardware and software disciplines for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) for the past 30 years. He always wanted to fly, but the pressures of the job plus family meant that he was unable to devote sufficient time to it until now. He has travelled extensively having lived in Italy, Belgium, USA, Norway, Iceland, Canada and many other places, and has now retired to sunny Cyprus, the "Jewel Of The Mediterranean." Finally he's able to devote his full time and energy to flying, and even though now 69, is still a "big kid" at heart. In addition to aviation, he is a ham radio operator, holding the call sign 5B4AIY, a photographer, musician, and a writer.
