Bournemouth airport based pilot training centre Airways Aviation has announced its first Charity of the Year.
Ollie Pennington, Managing Director of Airways Aviation UK, says that the inspiring work of the foundation, which in 2014 has allocated over £70,000 to projects and support the ambitions of youngsters across the region, ensured that their choice was unanimous amongst the Pilots and Instructors.
“It’s the first time we have pledged a year of support to a charity. We will help to fundraise with activities and donations to support of the foundation’s focus on young people,” said Ollie.
Linda Thornton commented “This is tremendous news and we thank the Airways Aviation team for setting aside budget and offering their time to support us. We are developing fundraising ideas, even a potential flying scholarship, which could be awarded to someone with the appropriate ambition and attitude.”
The JTYAF is looking forward to an exciting year in partnership with Airways Aviation.
