2011 saw the election of a new chairman following John Broad’s decision to stand down.

Steve and his Tipsy Trainer

Steve and Tipsy Trainer

Steve, who is now the CEO of the Light Aircraft Association, was a motor race commentator and writer, and is a self-confessed fan of low and slow tail-draggers, having owned a VW-powered Luton Minor single seater, then a Hindustan Pushpak - an Indian built Aeronca. His current steed is the Tipsy Trainer G-AISA and he has also just finished restoring, with Matthew Boddington, the “Biggles Biplane” 1914 BE-2C replica.

Steve is keen that people don’t just think of the Club as only for those who fly ancient or exotic machines. It is absolutely the contrary.

The best thing about our fly-ins is the sheer variety of aircraft says Steve. Visitors arrive in everything from homebuilts to classic Pipers and Cessnas, Jodels and Austers. The Club is as much about people as aeroplanes and we have got some of the best. That’s what makes our fly-ins and events so much fun.
