Brian Cosgrove MBE

It is with great sadness that we announce that BMAA President Brian Cosgrove MBE passed away on 29th June 2010.

Affectionately known as the 'father of microlighting', Brian contributed a great amount to microlighting, not least by being the author of several books, including the Microlight Pilot's handbook. He was a very charming and knowledgeable man, to which anyone who had the pleasure of meeting him would agree. A full obituary will be published in the August edition of Microlight Flying.

The funeral arrangements are as follows:

Monday 12th July 1100 hrs.

Church service at St John's Catholic Church, Banbury, with the burial at Deddington cemetery.
Family flowers only. Donations to a dementia charity will be taken during a collection at the service.
If you are unable to attend the service but would like to donate you can do so through the on-line BMAA shop by clicking this link.
