HC Deb 27 January 1931 vol 247 c815W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what new flying clubs have been started within the last 12 months; and which of them are receiving grants?


I believe that several non-assisted flying and gliding clubs have been started during the period in question, but I have no official information regarding them. As regards assisted clubs, one club—Blackpool (and Fylde)—whieh has started since 1st January, 1930, is affiliated to National Flying Services, Ltd., and will thereby benefit by grants paid by the Air Ministry to that organisation. Three clubs—Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Southern —which started before that date have now been approved for direct financial assistance under the Air Ministry Light Aeroplane Clubs scheme.
