New BMAA Chairman

New BMAA Chairman

At the BMAA Council meeting on Monday 12th September Rob Hughes was elected to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of his predecessor, David Bremner. 

Rob served as BMAA chairman in 2010-12 before moving to Switzerland to work for the International Air Sports Federation, the FAI. On returning to the UK in 2014 Rob re-joined Council and worked with David until his resignation. 

"David's decision was a surprise to us," said Rob. "He has served the BMAA for more than 20 years, first as the editor of Microlight Flying, then as a Council member and more recently as Chairman. I am sure I speak for us all when I thank David for his enormous contribution to the BMAA.

"We will now look to the future and build on David's work. The microlighting world does not stand still and we face new challenges all the time. I hope to encourage all BMAA members to work together to protect our relative freedoms and support British Microlighting".

David Bremner was awarded the BMAA Medal, BMAA's highest award, in 2010 for his service to the BMAA.
