Gerry (Ged) Stokes - Sutton Coldfield.

 I am The wrong side of 59 and have been happily married to my wife Lyn for 35 years. We have one son Danny (Ground crew)

Danny was married last year to Helen. His father in law is Steve (Ground crew).

I was first bitten by the flying bug 30 years ago. I waited until 2010 before I took the plunge and bought my first craft.

I have now achieved a lifelong ambition to be able to fly. I cannot think of a better way to use my new skills. I will be flying over some beautiful countryside with like minded friends and hopefully raising some money for a cause that is very dear to me. As Mike has said the majority of us have all lost loved ones to this awful disease. Please donate generously.
