High-flying architect Matthew Foster has quit Pentagram and propelled himself into a year’s course to become a commercial pilot. He won the sponsored place after answering an advertisement in Flight Magazine. Foster jets off to cadet school next month, having only had half an hour’s flying lesson. ‘I’m on cloud nine,’ he says of the jumbo undertaking. Architecture and flying are very similar, apparently – both involve spatial awareness, hand-eye co-ordination and deciphering technical data. Should all be plane sailing for Foster, then. Chocks away!
