Craig Penrice 1959-

Craig Penrice spent 18 years in the Royal Air Force during which time he flew Lightnings, Hawks, and F-15s with the United States Air Force and trained as a test pilot with the United States Navy. He was the second RAF pilot to fly the Eurofighter Typhoon during his time at Boscombe Down. He joined BAE Systems in 1998 maintaining his connection with Typhoon and was the lead project pilot until June 2003, when a broken back during an ejection from a Hunter resulted in an end to his fast jet flying career. Craig is currently advising on export opportunities for the Eurofighter Typhoon.
