Keith Negal - RAeC Gold Medal

Keith Negal - RAeC Gold Medal

Our congratulations go to BMAA member and past Chairman Keith Negal who we heard yesterday has been awarded the Royal Aero Club Gold Medal.

The gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded annually for outstanding achievement in aviation during the preceding year or over a number of years, principally, but not necessarily, as a pilot. Other notable recipients of this award are:

1908 Wilbur & Orville Wright

1909 Louis Bleriot

1912 S.F. Cody

1919 Capt. Sir John Alcock & Lt. Sir Arthur Whitten Brown

1963 Sir G. de Havilland

1969 N.A. Armstrong, E.E. Aldrin, M. Collins

1996 Ann Welch

2001 R. Meredith Hardy

2003 Paul Dewhurst

Keith was nominated for the medal by the BMAA and will receive the award at a ceremony planned for the 27th April 2010 at Hendon. The ceremony is open to visitors, by ticket, and I am sure that Keith will be happy to see as many BMAA members there as can make it. When tickets become available we will publish details in Microlight Flying magazine.
