The Queen and one or two friends availing themselves of Crosland Moor before departing for Holyrood House. Following a visit to Bradford and Huddersfield she said her farewells at Crosland - make sure you see our crest on your next visit!

       
 

 A few to whet the appetite...

Get to know the members -the rogues' gallery as I like to call it!

 

Peter Thompson

Peter flies the much loved Bolkow Junior.

G-ATDO previously belonged to Harold Swift at Hill Farm, Marton  (Hull). Harold was, or maybe still is, the oldest PPL in Yorkshire.

 

James (Fireball) Whitham

James is one of the airfield owners and flies a great RV6 as well as a Jodel. Known to many as a motorcycle commentator (he is still active in the saddle too) following a brilliant career.

 

Martin (the Pitts) Hill

Martin changed the Pitts for an RV7 - looks rather good!. He can be found competing throughout the year in aerobatic competitions and spends time above Crosland Moor practicing. Martin also flies an Arrow out of Crosland.

 

Its very dodgy!

Graham (it's dodgy) Mills

Now flying a beautiful Jodel taildragger (yup he is a pro per pilot now) A true Scot, Graham loves a wee tot and has been known to buy a round!

 

Alex Hamilton

Alex is a share holder in the Maule. Another Scot, he is a doctor and has been flying for some time previously from Sherburn. Another proper pilot who flies taildragger.

 

John Standring

John, seen here with his daughter Adel, flies a lovely Zenair. His favourite landing place is Pilling Sand where he takes all his lady passengers! He treats them to fish and chips when there... what a smooth operator.

         

Mark (the Blade) Chambers

Mark flies the lovely tail dragger Sonex which he built. He also plays a mean air guitar while flying with Alan... however his sense of Rhythm is better than his sense of direction!

 

Dave (Coddy!) Caldwell

Currently awaiting the latest police most wanted narrative.... watch this space for updates and in the meantime DO NOT APPROACH THIS MAN...

 

Marcus (the Moth)

Seen here with probably the youngest member of the club. Marcus is a devout believer in planes with two sets of wings, rigging wires and no brakes - Tiger Moths - and why not? Looking forward to a go in one Marcus!!

 

Nice up here...

Alan (Biggles) Dalgetty

Alan flies anything he can get his hands on! Known locally as Biggles The Blagger he loves nothing better than being airborne. Ex gliding instructor and tug pilot who probably makes the best bacon butties in Yorkshire. Now flying the Mark Sonex!!

 

Andy (chick) Carter

Andy has come to us after many years as a modeller (making planes not catwalking.. although!) and is keen to build and fly his own proper plane. UPDATE: Andy now building a Minimax SSDR and flying the Zenair. Sonex was sold last year.

 

Malcolm (the banker) Hill

Malcolm is the father of Martin and flies a beautiful Piper Arrow. He looks after the funds of the club and is affectionately know as the banker.

 
         

Colin (the thespian..)

Colin flies a Piper Tripacer from Crosland and has done so for many years now. His hobbies include amatuer dramitcs and loves to give us a song at the flyin evening events...
