January 2018

Hello and welcome to a brand new year. Seems like just a few days ago that the last one started. We've been off to a busy start to the year despite the very cold temperatures. This month we have a student to congratulate on their first solo and a COPA scholarship that is now accepting applications.

Congratulations to Rick who took the R22 on his own for the first time earlier this month
