Set up as a trust that aims to help those who dream of becoming a commercial airline pilot but without the financial means, The Mike Langley Foundation has been granted charity status. Through funding initiatives and scholarships, the foundation aims to widen access to the aviation profession to help those with the passion to succeed to do so.
The charity has, to date, raised £8,858 through fund raising and has received a further £25,000 of pilot training sponsorship. This money can support individuals across any of the licences required; from the initial Private Pilot Licence (PPL) to the more advanced Multi-Crew Co-operation Course (MCC). The foundation can provide the necessary guidance on licences and sponsorship requirements by contact directly through the website https://mikelangleyfoundation.org/contact , or by telephone on +44 (0) 1789 298 582.
Mr Langley sadly passed away following a short battle with terminal cancer in 2017. The foundation represents and honours his determination to make a difference in the airline industry through experience and wisdom.
