Neil Airey has been our President since May 2010. Neil served as a helicopter pilot and instructor in the Royal Air force for 20 years from which he retired as a Squadron Leader. During his service he spent 3 and a half years on a loan service detachment to Brunei as OC Flying Standards flying, instructing and examining on a range of helicopters.

He is the Chief Pilot of www.huey.co.uk flying the only privately owned, civilian UH-1H in the UK.

Until he retired in mid July 2018, Neil could also be seen flying the North West Air Ambulance. The Club were pleased to hear that at the 2017 Air Ambulance Awards of Excellence event in London, Neil won the award of Air Ambulance Pilot of The Year. Our congratulations were extended to Neil.


He currently has over 7,800 flying hours and 16 types on his licence.

The following picture shows Neil and his partner (now his wife), Heather, together with our first President the late Jimmy Dell with, in the background, their all time favourite aircraft. Indeed, Neil has the airframe of one of these, XM172, in his back garden.
