Biography

  • Myles has started taking helicopter pilot lessons. "It's quite a weird sensation at first but fundamentally they have three main controls, like a car, so you soon get used to it..."
  • His job means he spends each day applying finishing touches (repairs or customer requests) to some of the world's most exotic and luxurious cars. Truly high-end stuff!
