He has successfully transferred this training to other areas including Formula 1, professional football and medical organisations.
Tug is married with two daughters and two idiot dalmatians that are a lot smarter than he gives them credit for – he (Tug, not the dalmatians) is the author of The Nervous Passengers Guide to Flying.
