HC Deb 22 January 1931 vol 247 cc374-5W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air how many light aeroplane clubs are at present qualified for the Government grants, and the total number of A licensed pilots trained during the present financial year by all those clubs collectively?


Fourteen light aeroplane clubs have been approved for financial assistance under the Air Ministry scheme; in addition, six clubs are affiliated to National Flying Services, Limited, and thereby benefit by grants paid by the Air Ministry under the agreement with that organisation. The number of new pilots trained by these clubs during the present financial year, up to the end of November, was 365.
