Introducing.. Latest additions to our team

Over the last few months we have been delighted to welcome some new and talented instructors to our team. Namely, Pete Hughes (also flies Tiger Moths and a former differences student of ours), Joff Hicks (based out of Seething and Old Buck and most recently, Garth McCormick from Belfast.

Garth has been based in Manchester for the majority of the last 20 years having learnt to fly at Newtownards in 2008 and says of his varied career to date:

“my low boredom threshold means that at various times I have worked as an economist, astrophysicist, civil servant and, most recently, physics teacher.”

Having studiously avoided photographs all his life, you will have to come and meet Garth in person!

As many of you are aware we have had several success stories recently with many of our instructors heading off to ‘proper jobs’ in the commercial aviation sector. Sam Keogh, Stef Gonzalez to Iberia Airlines, and of course Jay Sadri (former company instructor) is busy with his type rating for Titan. Although you may see Jay every now and then knocking out some loops in the Extra 200..

We feel that we have just the right combo of old and new (in every sense!) with our instructors and are also able to offer an environment where you can have informal chats with both commercial pilots (such as Mark Evans, Rob Bryce Smith, Arwyn Jones) and those currently undertaking commercial training (or soon to be!) – Invaluable to student pilots!

We are thrilled to have such great additions to our rich and diverse team with an ever growing and varied skills base. Everything from PPL through to advanced training in Aerobatics, Tailwheel and the instrument rating on our CBIR course.

Last but not least our newest administrator and fellow PPL student Sarah Glover is settling in a treat! 🙂

So next time you’re in look out for one of our new guys and gals!

We are thrilled to announce the winner of this year’s Molly Rose Scholarship. Huge congratulations to Amelia Richardson who at only 17 y/o really impressed the panel and shone through despite stiff competition!The Molly Rose 🌹 Scholarship is in memory of Sir David Marshall’s daughter, herself a great aviator during WWII, flying for the Air Transport Auxiliary. Sir David founded Marshall of Cambridge in 1909, and his son (Molly’s brother) later set up the aviation wing of Marshall and @cambridgeaeroclub where Amelia will now train.Inspired by Molly and intended to encourage young women into aviation, the initiative fully funds the Private Pilot’s Licence for one promising student each year.With her extensive gliding background and enthusiasm we can’t wait to get Amelia started on her PPL @cambridgeaeroclub !Describing the award as a huge honour, Richarson explained: “It really is a fantastic leap towards achieving my career aspirations as a flight instructor, a taste of which I’ve had since becoming a basic gliding instructor just over a year ago. Thank you to everyone for supporting me”.Christopher Walkinshaw DL, Director of External Relations and Communications at Marshall of Cambridge, concluded that “Amelia is clearly a passionate and talented young aviator who has already achieved a great deal,” extending the Marshall team’s enthusiasm in continuing to watch her career progress.Huge thanks to Aetheris Films and the Attagirls Club, Paul & Nadine Olaveson-Stabb, Graham, Gregory and Nigel Rose, The British Women Pilots Association (BWPA), Philip Meeson founder of Jet2 and of course Marshall of Cambridge, of which we are a part.@amelia_glider_pilot @mollyrosepilotscholarship @marshallgroupglobal @attagirlsclub @attagirlsthemovie @bwpa_uk @aetheris_uk #womeninaviation #learntofly #pilottraining #privatepilot ...
