Ladies and gentleman, with the aim of developing the Microlight Flying Foundation our Chairman, Chris Finnigan, has created the following mission statement;

Facilitating the future of affordable aviation

The Microlight Flying Foundation (MFF) is a registered charity whose aim is to raise funds to support, facilitate and encourage affordable recreational flying into the future.

It is independent from the British Microlight Aircraft Association, although its current Trustees are all members of the BMAA. While it supports the Association's Bursary Scheme, the MFF also welcomes applications for funding support from individuals, clubs and other organisations seeking to promote and provide opportunities in microlight aviation. Such support is not limited exclusively to young persons; older beneficiaries whose aims align with those of the Foundation will always be considered.

Microlight aviation has made the dream of flying as a pilot in command of a powered aeroplane come within the reach of many. Recreational flying is no longer the preserve of the wealthy, as simpler lightweight aircraft designs have brought both purchase and operating costs down. Even so, many would-be pilots, flying instructors and aircraft designers or engineers can be daunted by the cost of learning to fly or acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to pursue a career in microlight and light aviation.

The Foundation seeks to engage with individuals, clubs and other organisations to help it raise funds to support the sector. Microlight clubs are well known for fundraising in support of worthwhile causes related to their own interests, such as local Air Ambulance charities.

The MFF would appreciate consideration by such clubs when events are organised and donations to charities are sought. Pilots and others involved in microlighting, who want to "put something back" into this form of aviation, are encouraged to make a donation, leave a bequest in their Will or generally help the charity to raise funds.

To become a fund raiser, organise a regional team or otherwise support the Microlight Flying Foundation, email jon.hilton@legalbrokers.co.uk for further information.
