Ian Stokes

We have just been told that Ian Stokes, former BMAA Council member and Chairman, died at the weekend in Gambia. Ian was one of the pioneers of microlighting in the UK. He started and ran a school and club from Davidstow airfield in Cornwall. He flew a variety of aircraft including the Quicksilver and Eagle. He was part of the original training committee and examining panel. Ian imported the first of the Thruster aircraft from Australia and put the design through the British airworthiness system. He moved to Gambia to set up a microlight school some years ago. Ian was one of microlighting's characters and will be missed by many members.
