Dave said: “I love flying helicopters and have been flying for over 25 years.
"Some days when I am stressed from work, and I arrive home, look up at the sky and choose a great big cloud to go and sit on, I get my Bell Jetranger helicopter out of the hangar and fly up to the cloud and hover just above it, slowing the helicopter down to the same speed and height as the cloud, it is an amazing feeling.
"I have a real passion for flying, so I decided to make a few videos for people who love aviation, and things have just gone viral!
“I joined TikTok just a few weeks ago and my videos combined have already had 24 million global views!”
Dave added: “I was contacted by BuzzFeed, as they had noticed I was going viral with lots of my videos.
“I have just done a huge interview with a journalist from the BuzzFeed office in New York which will soon be shown across all the BuzzFeed networks, TV and social media across the globe.
“BuzzFeed’s videos have the biggest media reach in the world and have had over 17.4 billion views.
“Hopefully I’m helping put Burnley and Lancashire on the map!”
