Eddie McCallum, Microlight Pilot
6th October 2015
7.30pm until 9pm – Room 1, BAWA, Southmead Road, BS34 7RG
This is a joint event with the The Light Aircraft Association Bristol Strut and the Bristol Aero Club. Last year Eddie flew solo in his single engine microlight Flight Design CTSW aircraft from Northumberland to Oshkosh, Wisconsin – and back, for which he was a winner of the Royal Aero Club’s Norton Griffiths Trophy. He will describe the challenges of weather and temperature in an aircraft equipped only for day visual flight, and will touch on relevant history and geography as well. With this flight, Eddie has raised over £15000 for UNICEF, and attendees are encouraged to contribute £5 per head to this cause; collection boxes will be available.
Attendance is free and open to members and non-members.
