Significant Changes Afoot in the organisation of the LAA

As strut Chairman, Tony has received a letter from Brian Davies, the LAA Chairman announcing the disbanding of the National Council.  There are a number of proposed initiatives to replace its function.  Click here to download the full text of the letter as a pdf: Letter to Strut Chairman from Brian Davies Oct 2015

Gives us something to talk about with Steve Slater, the new CEO of the Light Aircraft Association when he visits on Wednesday.

Need some welding on your aircraft?

This guy comes with a personal recommendation from Tony Palmer.

CAA Welder AdMark is a superb welder, he did two SS Gipsy manifolds for me the other day. He started welding as an apprentice and is now in his 50’s. He has been welding in the shipyards and was recently laid off when the modules for our new aircraft carriers were completed. He has been welding aircraft for about 18-19 years in his days off at aero antiques in Southampton. Depending on what needs doing, he will come to the job or you can post it to him. Full CAA certification
