Back to Our People

Flight Lieutenant Matt Curry


My career highlight so far

The course at RAF Shawbury is great.  Every day is different and builds on the last.  It challenges you to work with other people and bring your best game to work every day.  For most, it takes years of work that starts long before you even put on a uniform.  At the end of that, I don’t think there are many people who wouldn’t say that being presented with their aircrew badges isn’t the proudest moment that they have ever had.

The best thing about my current role

I have a long training programme ahead of me, it's challenging and diverse. Each day brings new problems to solve, but I get to work alongside some amazing instructors and students all of whom are working towards the same thing. I love flying, and the more I immerse myself in it the better I will be, so it's a win-win.
