Weʼve raised £1,020 to The Mike Langley Foundation
- Funded on Friday, 1st September 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
A young person dreams of becoming a pilot and discovers that without considerable financial support, it simply isn’t possible. And in today’s aviation industry this is all too true. So with your help, we are going to change things. Through funding initiatives and scholarship, we will create opportunities for those who demonstrate real passion to become a commercial airline pilot.
Why are we doing this? In recognition of a man called Mike Langley and his significant contribution to the aviation industry. Sadly, Mike lost his battle with cancer in April 2017, but he remained passionate about making training accessible to all those who had a dream to become a commercial pilot but lacked the financial resources.
Following a distinguished career in the Royal Air Force, Mike Langley played a pivotal role in ab-initio training in the UK over the last 25 years working with self-funded pilots, airlines, universities and regulatory bodies from across the globe. Mike was also a founder member of Kura and Head of its Advisory Board.
Kura Aviation, the industry’s only Community Interest Company, is delighted to be involved in The Mike Langley Foundation. Help us create creating opportunities for those who demonstrate real passion to become an airline pilot.
