A pilot has left his post at Biggin Hill Airport to join the RAF.

Steven Inch departed from his position as flight operations officer before Christmas after two-and-a-half years at the airport.

During the summer of 2015, the 24-year-old qualified for his Private Pilots Licence, sponsored by the Nick Davidson Memorial Flying Scholarship scheme, which proved to be the catalyst for his planned career in the RAF.

Later this month, Mr Inch will report to the RAF College at Cranwell in Lincolnshire, joining course number 44 for his 32 weeks basic training.

When qualified, he hopes to be flying in a Typhoon squadron.

Mr Inch said: “Workinj as a member of the flight operaions team at Biggin Hill has been an outstanding experience.

“It was the Nick Davidson Memorial Scholarship scheme that lifted and inspired my ambition towards becoming a professional pilot in the RAF and I shall always be grateful for that opportunity.”
