A YOUNG high-flier has qualified as a commercial jet pilot and landed a job with Ryanair.

Despite being just 25, former St John Houghton School pupil Gregory Chadwick has passed gruelling courses at Nottingham Trent University, Oxford Aviation Academy and in Phoenix, Arizona.

He will now be taking passengers to destinations including Lithuania and Malaga.

Mum Julie said: “Any mother would worry about a job like this but I know he’s very competent. We’re very proud of what he’s achieved.”
