Wings 4 Warriors Charity

Mark Radcliffe, Alex Robotham, Matt Bryant and Steve Monteith
Went to see the charity Wings 4 Warriors today. An interesting charity started after a chance meeting by an amputee and a businessman which led to this charity that pays for severely injured servicemen to retrain as helicopter pilots. The charity started at the end of 2011 and so far has one commercial pilot and two private pilots, with one more training. Three of the students are ex-marine, the other one was in the army.
Mark Radcliffe, the director and motivator of the charity, stresses that the charity can only grow slowly as there is not the market for a large number of new helicopter pilots. For more see Helicopter Life September issue.
