Cambridge Airport supports Dawn till Dusk mission


24-06-2011

Take Flight Aviation Owner, Mike Roberts successfully accomplished a momentous challenge this week after landing his single engine Piper PA-28 light aircraft at 68 airfields across the country in aid of Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

Mike took off from Wellesbourne Airfield on the year’s longest day, 21 June, at sunrise 04:45 in overcast conditions.  Mike touched down at Cambridge Airport for just a few minutes at 09.25 for a quick fuel stop before taking flight once again. 

“We were pleased to be able to support this ambitious project and get fuel on board quickly for him in his flight against time,” said Archie Garden Cambridge Airport Director.

The challenge aims to raise in excess of £2000 for Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, the helicopter emergency medical service serving the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes. “The air ambulance is aiming to be the first in the country to operate 24 hours a day so it seemed like the perfect aviation related cause,” said Mike.

Take Flight Aviation Limited based at Wellesbourne Mountford Airfield in Warwickshire is a private flying club.
