An instructor from a Scottish flying school has received an award from HRH the Duke of Edinburgh.

Marjan Bledowski of Tayside Aviation – based in Dundee – was presented with an award from The Air League in recognition of his services to flight training and outstanding flying instruction with young students.

The Air League’s patron, the Duke of Edinburgh, presented Bledowski with an illuminated scroll at an award ceremony held at St James Palace on 31 May.

The 60 year-old has 14,000 hours of flying experience and has been instructing with Tayside Aviation for 24 years. During that time he has sent more than 700 students on their first solo flight.

Additionally, Bledowski is the Chief Flying Instructor for the RAF scholarship programme at Dundee, and has taught over 1,200 air cadets. He has also trained pilots for Hong Kong’s search and rescue services.

James Watt, Tayside Aviation’s Managing Director, said:

“I am very proud that Marjan has received this recognition from The Air League. He is an outstanding flying instructor who has never lost his drive and enthusiasm to help students achieve their goal of becoming a pilot”.
