Meet the team

The BWPA is run by a committee of elected members each with individual responsibilities. Off the committee much work is done liaising with other aviation organisations, both in the UK and overseas. Fundraising through raffles, events etc supplement the membership fees and provide the money to support the Scholarship and Bursary and to promote flying. Regional Groups are run throughout the country. Typically they meet once a month for social and/or flying events. Regional co-ordinators meet to exchange ideas and plan joint and national events.
