Seventy-five years ago, bread rationing in Britain had just been introduced. George Formby, comedian, and entertainer was awarded an OBE. Cinema queues were waiting to see ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ which was on general release.
The Light Aircraft Association was also formed in this year 1946.
Today the LAA’s core values remain – encouraging ordinary people to build and fly light aircraft for pleasure. The LAA’s 75th Anniversary takes place at Sywell Aerodrome this weekend, 3rd-5th of September. This is the largest fly-in event, post Covid, and is keenly anticipated by pilots and LAA members from across the UK.
Trig Avionics will be exhibiting at the show in stand 69, in the LAA Village area. Jon Roper, Trig Marketing Manager shared, “Our range of avionics are well suited to meet the needs of LAA aircraft owners. We will be on hand to help both new and existing customers. Of particular interest, the CAA Conspicuity Rebate Scheme has recently been extended into 2022. The Rally presents a compelling opportunity for pilots to see our certified ADS-B Out products. Our TT21 Mode S transponder and TN72 GPS, together provide a certified ADS-B Out to improve flight safety and they can attract a money saving CAA rebate too.”
Trig will have a full suite of avionics available for pilots to see at the show. For more information click on the CAA Rebate Scheme.
