Please join us in congratulating, Brian Thompson

Aerobility Flyer, Brian Thompson has shown unwavering commitment to his flight training, regularly traveling the great distance between his home in Middlesbrough to Tatenhill for his lessons with Craig Knott. 

It is wonderful to see these all this hard-work  pay off as we are delighted to announce that Brian has now completed all training and tests required to secure a NPPL license!

Brian's instructor, Craig shared, "Brian has been a pleasure to teach and has done very well with both practical and theory elements. He plans to continue to fly at Tatenhill for now, but will start to have a look at options where he can hire an aircraft a little nearer to home."

Please join us in congratulating Brian in making this amazing achievement.
