We are delighted to recognise Cllr Seán Woodward for his support of our flying association with an award.
Cllr Woodward of Fareham Borough Council has been hugely supportive over the past six years of the Lee Flying Association and making Daedalus Aerodrome available for UK and European aviation business and amenity use.
Cllr Woodward took up the case in the political arena and provided invaluable advocacy for those dependent on access to the aerodrome and this award recognises his contribution to an aviation future for Daedalus Aerodrome and Enterprise Zone.
The award recognises those who have made a special contribution towards the work of the UK Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). It was presented to him on Saturday by the AOPA chairman Mr George Done at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford.
The Lee Flying Association put Cllr Woodward forward for the Friend of AOPA Award to the AOPA UK, who then decided to recognise his invaluable help towards the flying association.
The AOPA UK is part of the largest association of pilots in the world, with over 430,000 members in over 66 countries. AOPA UK is a non-profit organisation which serves the interests of its members as aircraft owners and pilots, promoting the economy, safety, utility, and popularity of general aviation.
