David Marchington celebrated his 16th birthday on 28th May by flying solo. At age 12 it was suggested that he might be the youngest pilot in Great Britain. From age 11, his dad, Dr Tony Marchington, would take him to the flying club every Sunday for flying lessons. A good education and David's all round development and mentoring was Tony's long term gift to his son.
Tragically Tony died last year. David's mum has bravely continued with the tradition and was there to see David fly solo. Dad Tony would have been very proud of his son.
