Captain Douglas Fraser Reid


Captain Reid was born on the 9th of June 1960 in Glasgow, where he lived in and around until joining the Armed Forces (Army) in 1977 as a ‘boy soldier’. He then served with the colours in both the Royal Armoured Corps and Army Air Corps in many places around the world, completing 22 years reckonable service in the year 2000.

Time spent attaining a commercial helicopter pilot’s licence prior to discharge, paved the way for a particularly varied portfolio of flying within the civilian helicopter market; encapsulating private, commercial, aerial filming and police work nationwide.

Despite having his origins north of the Scotland/England divide, he has sunk his roots in Suffolk and continues to fly on an ad-hoc freelance basis around the UK and near Europe.
