'Take Off' with Ian Grosz

Flying Training Scholarships are now being offered through a new aviation charity for 16 to 18 year old's in the Perth area of Scotland. Take Off is the new Charity looking to give something back to the aviation community in a part of the world where aviation is crucial to the economy and well being of the region.

How has this come about, who are the main supporters and sponsors? Well on this weeks Across The Pond segment of the Airplane Geeks podcast (, we talk to one of the driving forces behind the scenes Ian Grosz, a commercial helicopter and fixed wing pilot with a considerable amount of flying time and experience. Ian tells us why he fought to get this going along with his other Charity Trustee Howard Duthie, (a retired teacher and a keen microlight pilot). 

Supported by Perth and Kinross Education Authority and the Scottish Aero Club this is an absolutely fantastic opportunity for youngsters who may never have been given this chance.

Ian can be personally followed on Twitter @AusterPilot
