Tony joined 3SDL's growing Cyber team after a 29-year flying career in the Royal Air Force followed by 3 years in defence related companies.

During his military career Tony achieved 7,000 flying hours across a broad spectrum of roles on several different ISR aircraft. 

Tony was selected to attend the SANS Cyber Re-Training Academy during which he completed 4 SANS courses in 10 weeks and gained GIAC Security Essentials (GSEC) and GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH) qualifications.

Half of Tony's flying career was spent as an Anti-Submarine Warfare operator with the Maritime Surveillance force in Scotland, normally flying in collaboration with the Royal Navy. After a move to Lincolnshire he retrained first as an Electronic Warfare operator and then as a Tactical Data Link operator. He was deployed all over the world in dynamic environments and spent a period embedded within the USAF. During this period he was also an aircrew instructor, assessor and course designer.

Since leaving service he has worked as a blended e-learning Project Manager and latterly as a Ground School Instructor of future pilots undertaking Elementary Flying Training. 

During this time Tony was selected, after a rigorous selection process, to attend the SANS Cyber Re-Training Academy as part of the government funded National Cyber Security Strategy. This unique initiative is designed to fast-track technically minded individuals into the field of cyber-security. He completed 4 SANS courses in 10 weeks and gained GIAC Security Essentials (GSEC) and GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH) qualifications.
