Tracey Curtis-Taylor is an aviator in the old fashioned sense of the word and a pilot with an inspired sense of adventure. She is an exceptional self-starter and can speak with eloquence and humour on how she turned her passion for old aeroplanes and flying the world into reality.

Her open-cockpit biplane flight from Cape Town to Goodwood was the realisation of something beyond a dream. It encompassed great adventure and daring in some of the most spectacularly beautiful and dangerous parts of the world today. The Africa flight was a tribute to Lady Heath, the first person to fly solo from the Cape to the UK in 1928, and a celebration of all the pioneering aviators who established the early air routes for what has become the mass travel of today.

Drawing on her unusual flying experiences and a lifetime of adventure, Tracey's story has wide appeal to many audiences. She can tailor the content and tone of her speeches to suit, from pure entertainment to targeted corporate communications.

Testimonials about Tracey:

I work with speaker clients from all over the world and was first privileged to work with Tracey Curtis
Taylor in June 2014. Tracey is unique, quirky and highly engaging. She is a fabulous speaker with a great
story to tell. I cannot recommend her more highly.
Robin Kermode, Founder of Zone 2 Communications and author of Speak So Your Audience Will Listen

My main reason for inviting Tracey to Aerobility was to inspire our students who struggle with physical or
learning disabilities and it worked! One of our older students who has struggled with severe arthritis and who gave up their flying because of health issues, decided on the talk day to start lessons again as they found Tracey SO inspiring.
