Meet Emma Horton
She is 19 and currently works as cabin crew for BA on long-haul flights. I know her dad, David, as we were previously both syndicate partners in a Piper Saratoga. He is a BA captain on long haul. Emma is now contemplating undertaking a full professional flying programme to become an airline pilot and wanted to have a taster with an instructor to see how she likes flying.
We flew in the Eurofox and in the K21, and she was a natural. Emma’s family lives locally even though she works out of Heathrow. So with a bit of luck we’ll be welcoming her as a Junior Member in 2018. (Neil Rathbone)
