Flight training industry veteran Mike Langley died earlier this month but his memory lives on with the Mike Langley Foundation, which aims to fund flight training for aspiring pilots.
“The Mike Langley Foundation is a charitable trust that aims to help those with a dream to become a commercial airline pilot, those with the passion to succeed but without the financial means. Through funding initiatives and scholarships, we aim to widen access to the aviation profession,” said the Foundation.
The Mike Langley Foundation was launched on 29 November 2016, by Captain Ian Baston of Flybe. More than 200 pilots, industry colleagues and airline representatives came together to recognise Mike’s phenomenal achievements in the industry in an Evening of Celebration.
As the Foundation’s first fund raising event, an impressive £5,858.36 was raised from the charity auction and almost £1,000 through generous personal donations. In addition, a further £25,000 of training sponsorships was received.
