about your instructor

Hey there! I’m Nikki, your go-to expert for Aviation English.  

I’ve always had a love for languages, a passion that led me from my home in the UK to Spain in 2002 to immerse myself in learning Spanish. This journey ignited my career in language education, and now, with over 20 years of teaching experience, I’ve combined my love for languages and aviation to help pilots and air traffic controllers improve their English proficiency.
I’ve dedicated myself to supporting professionals in this field, initially face-to-face, and now online through Plane and Simple English. My mission is to help you achieve fluency and confidence in English within an aviation context, whether you’re preparing for exams or looking for ongoing support.

In my free time, you’ll find me studying new languages (currently Korean!) and planning my next adventure. My dream is to embrace the digital nomad lifestyle, exploring the world while continuing to share my love for languages and aviation.
