The Rural Flying Corps have been providing flying training at Bourn Airfield, Cambridgeshire for over forty years.

Sadly the company was no longer sustainable in the present climate and has had to be wound up ending a long tradition at Bourn airfield. However, the airfield remains open.

Many of the several hundred who have obtained their Private Pilot’s Licence at Bourn have progressed to a career in commercial aviation and are now flying jet aircraft with the major airlines. Others simply fly for pleasure or continue to learn and obtain extra ratings.

It is with deep regret that we announce the death of our CFI Arthur Lindsay Brown.

Lindsay, born 11th June 1936, passed peacefully on 4th February 2020, aged 83 years. Much loved Husband to Barbara; Father and Grandfather. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him, particularly all the pilots and flight instructors that he taught over his long career with the Rural Flying Corps.

Barbara, Paula and Nicola would like to say a big thank you to all the many friends and family for their kind cards, letters and condolences.  What a wonderful turnout to celebrate Lindsay’s life. As one friend said he was a flying legend and he was. The flypast in the little Cub, I know he would have enjoyed that. Once again many, many thanks for everything that made the day so special.

We would like to say a very big heartfelt thank you for all the very generous donations made in honour of Lindsay for The British Heart Foundation and East Anglian Air Ambulance.

The total raised was £1000.00, a fantastic amount, £500 has been donated to each charity.

With our love and thanks to you all from Lindsay’s family. xx

Barbara, Paula & Neil, Nic & Geoff, James, Ryan and Catherine.
