The Light Aircraft Association has launched a new ‘30 Under 30’ membership category, which offers a year’s membership for £30, rather than the existing £58, for any applicant under thirty years of age.
The aim is to attract younger, more recently qualified flyers to extend their passion for flying and share the Association’s commitment to affordable flying for fun.
“Many younger pilots often don’t realise that the LAA offers some of the lowest cost flying there is, with a share in typical LAA-type aircraft costing quite a bit less than a second-hand car,” says LAA Chief Executive Officer and Pilot contributor Steve Slater. “In addition, friendships and social bonds with fellow LAA members can extend beyond flying. It’s a great way of ensuring newly qualified pilots continue to push their boundaries and discover new flying adventures, either in taking the trusty flying club steed to an LAA fly-out or gathering, or exploring a new type, perhaps with the help of a fellow LAA owner or Pilot Coach.”
To take advantage of the new membership offer, under-thirties only need to send proof of age, such as their driver’s or pilot’s licence, along with a completed application form, which can be downloaded from the LAA website: lightaircraftassociation.co.uk
