Content Writing

You’ve probably heard it said that content is king. That’s only half the equation. You also need search engine optimised content designed to make your site rank for the search terms that your intended audience use when they’re looking for what you provide.

Video Creation

Videos now account for vast amounts of internet traffic. A short video lasting a few seconds is all it takes to grab the elusive attention span of your target market. I can make you videos that last seconds or minutes. Use them on your website or in social media.

SEO Audits

How’s your website doing? What’s internal linking structure like? How good is your on-page or off-page SEO? If you don’t know what I’m talking about you probably need someone like me who can audit and improve your site and explain in plain English how it’s done.

WordPress Websites

It’s not difficult to build a website but it’s not so easy to build one that looks professional, loads quickly, contains all the text, images, videos, and products that are specific to you, and which is secure enough to withstand attacks from the cybercriminals.

Aviate, Navigate, Communicate

The phrase “Aviate, Navigate, Communicate” is a cornerstone principle in aviation that serves as a decision-making hierarchy for pilots, particularly during emergency situations. The sequence is designed to prioritize tasks in a way that maximizes the chances of maintaining control of the aircraft and ensuring the safety of its occupants. Here’s a breakdown of each component in the phrase:


The most immediate priority in any flight situation is to control the aircraft effectively. This means maintaining the correct altitude, airspeed, and attitude. In an emergency, no other task supersedes the importance of flying the aircraft safely. If control of the aircraft is lost, then navigation and communication become moot points. Therefore, ‘aviating’ effectively forms the foundation upon which all other tasks are built.


Once the aircraft is under control, the next priority is to navigate. This entails knowing your position and planning a course to a safe destination, whether it’s continuing to the intended airport or diverting due to an emergency. Accurate navigation is vital for avoiding obstacles, complying with air traffic control instructions, and ensuring that the aircraft reaches its destination safely. With advancements in technology, navigation has become more precise and user-friendly, but the fundamental importance of this task remains unchanged.


After ensuring the aircraft is under control and on a safe navigational path, the next step is to communicate the situation. This could involve speaking with air traffic control, relaying important information to passengers, or communicating with other aircraft if necessary. Clear and precise communication can provide the pilot with vital information, additional resources, or alternative courses of action. However, it’s crucial to remember that communication should not distract from the primary tasks of flying and navigating the aircraft.

The brilliance of “Aviate, Navigate, Communicate” lies in its simplicity and its applicability to a wide range of situations—from standard flight operations to crisis scenarios. By ingraining this hierarchy into training and practice, pilots are better equipped to handle the multi-tasking demands of flying an aircraft, particularly in stressful or unexpected situations. This decision-making framework is not just an operational guideline but a lifesaving tool that underscores the fundamentals of aviation safety. Given the stakes involved in aviation, adhering to such foundational principles is not just advisable but essential.
