I qualified with a PPL on IAL in 1978. most of my training was with IAL, and sistership SVW which both
were being used by Chieftain aviation at Bankstown. [BWU] . I remember my fear of stalling, after having
witnessed the crash of Vickers Viscount G-AVJA on a positioning flt MAN/EDI . The a/c crashed in front of
me. having stalled at around 1000 ft on take off from runway 06. After having had 3 instructors at Bankstown,
l finally was lucky enough to meet training captain STERLING PRESTON, who found time to help me combat
my fears, and with time on SVW and IAL took my examination for PPL. IAL was White/Green, and SVW White/
Red. Both PA28 cruisers had been recently imported into Australia, and were crisp in performance, with the
trim wheel in the centre console, rather than a handle in the ceiling as on earlier PA28's.

After leaving Australia, with a PPL, l did some more flying in the USA. at Dekalb Peachtree, near Atlanta.
with a PA28 Dakota. supplied by Epps Air Services. and had my Australian Licence endorsed and an FAA
licence supplied after 40 minutes of being checked out by an FAA lady examiner.

STERLING went on to fly as captain for East West, and later Ansett, before training captains again with a
flight training company in Albury [ABX] l owe much to him, and the time l spent in VH-IAL
