About Guy Bartlett

Who Am I?

I'm an aviation historian and UAV pilot. I am also an experienced public speaker whose presentations are guaranteed to add extra sparkle to your club meeting or event. I use archive film footage, technology, music, humour and a genuine enthusiasm for the topics to provide a fascinating insight into mainly aviation-related subjects.

What Do I Do?

I use my own projector & amplifier to provide detailed but easily accessible talks about some of the most iconic aircraft ever to have flown. The talks are suitable for all ages and sexes and last between 60-90 minutes dependant on your requirements. I require a blank wall or screen to display my presentations. I live in Kent and will happily travel UK-wide. I also offer virtual presentations via Zoom. These are fully facilitated by myself, all the participants need to do is click on the link sent to them, sit back, and enjoy the talk. 100% Covid-19 safe!

Who Are My Talks For?

My talks are designed to be of interest to everyone whether they have an interest in aircraft or not. There are delivered in an energetic manner and I am always willing to take questions at the end. I have given presentations to numerous audiences ranging from school children, parent groups, professionals, enthusiast and older persons groups. I do not use jargon. My enthusiasm for the subject is often commented upon, and I my inclusive style ensures all will learn something.

Testimonials

"This was a truly excellent talk, extremely well informed yet able to explain aspects of the aircraft and associated systems at a level suitable for everyone in the audience. The clips shown were really exciting and enjoyed by all. We all came away having learned something about stealth aircraft and having had a very interesting afternoon. I can highly recommend Guy in the Sky. We will definitely invite him back to speak again."

"The ladies all enjoyed the talk on The Red Arrows. It was very well presented and Guy was very knowledgeable on the subject and answered any questions with ease. We look forward to booking Guy again."

"Good clear talker, entertaining presentation and brings his own projector. Knows his subject inside out and can answer members questions with ease. One of the best talks we have had and has been back to our club again, as requested by our members. Different talk each time."
