Meet Captain Tim Orchard at Aerospace Bristol


Former Concorde pilot, Captain Tim Orchard - a member of the flight crew who flew from New York to London in a stunning record time of 2 hours 52 minutes 59 seconds - will be at Aerospace Bristol to meet visitors and offer his insights into the remarkable aircraft and the exciting life of a Concorde pilot.

Captain Orchard will be there to sign autographs (and take selfies, of course!). W​​​​​hy not pick up a Concorde item from the shop and take away a special souvenir of the day?

Standard entry applies: £16.50 per adult,
£14.50 student and concessions,
£9 per child,
and a range of family ticket options available.

Captain Tim Orchard began his flying career nearly 50 years ago in 1971. He has flown over 50 types of aircraft and is currently licenced to fly Aeroplanes, Helicopters, Hot Air Balloons and Hot Air Airships. Tim is an air-test pilot, a Display Pilot, a Flight Instructor and a Senior Examiner and Assessor (of Pilots, Flight Instructors and of Examiners) for the UK Civil Aviation Authority. 

He jointly holds the Concorde World Record time for the journey from New York to London: 2hrs 52 minutes on 7th February 1996. Tim has flown in formation with the Concorde on several occasions, which of course few ever have done, including the Heathrow 50th Anniversary with Red Arrows and several air-to-air photography sorties.
