James Hayward Memorial Fly In - 17th June 2018
24th December 2017
It is with great sadness that we record the unexpected passing of James Hayward. James was an integral part of the flying scene in the Highlands as an AME, Flying Instructor, Examiner and flying buddy. We have shared many fantastic flying events and experiences with him at Easter Airfield over the years. James will be sorely missed as a mentor for many, but mostly as a treasured friend. RIP.
