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!

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!

  steve

Steve (the squash man) Ivell

and his lovely Jabaru. A lover of the game of squash and motor bikes, separately of course, Steve built a great Skyranger then a Eurostar. A PPL(a) holder I feel an RV will be his mount one day...
  chris


Andrew (righty) Wright

Andrew joined us from Fishburn recently and is in the Jabiru with Steve.  Not a lot know about this man... yet!
         

Mark (the Blade) Chambers

Update - Sonex sold down south and he is now flying G-XWEB a Skyranger with Alan.

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...

 

paul

Paul the mod it man...

Paul, nearest the camera, used to fly flex wings before building his lovely Ranger. The passenger is Graham the vet, which just goes to prove you can take the ranger out of the boy but you cant take the boy out of of a ranger...

 

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 Skyrange G-XWEB with Mark.

 

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. At the tender age of 80 something he has such vigor and enthusiasm for flying!

 
         



gavin


Gavin  (and Paul)

Gavin is the good looking one on the right (he paid me to say that...) . Formally a flexwing pilot Gav now flies a nice Eurostar and is seen trying on the latest Evo head accessory. Suites you sir!! Paul is also a pilot and flies flexwings. He is not really a milliner.
 


they fly paragliders too...
 
Marian and Nick

who fly an autogyro G-MAZA. They also fly paragliders (...none of us are perfect though!) and can be seen soaring the skies throughout Europe held up by thin string and flimsy fabric canopies.

 


alan

Alan (ding dong) Bell

Alan has taken over the Tri Pacer from Colin and is putting the hours in getting grips with her. Good to see the plane in the hands of someone who is continuing to enjoy her!

         
adam zenair

Adam

part of the Zenair syndicate and is the most recent member. When not flying he can be seen chasing a football around as he is a semi-pro footballer.
 


John is a Minimax pilot...
...but its PURPLE!


purple, its bloody purple

 

 

dave zenair

Dave Goodison

 Zenair member. Seen here giving her a clean down before the annual permit. Dave has been around flying for a while now and was a gliding instructor for his sins. He runs an aviation instument repair business... a useful contact!
