William Ames – Duke of Edinburgh

We are pleased to have recently sponsored William Ames from Gordon’s School, Woking. At the young age of just 14, William is currently undertaking his Gold DofE award and is fundraising for his upcoming trip to Norway. After telling us his story, we were so impressed by his commitment that we couldn’t resist offering a 30 minute flight experience for his raffle – good luck William! William wrote to us after his raffle saying, “Synergy Aviation’s generous donation of a voucher for a flying lesson really kick-started my fundraising for my Gold Duke of Edinburgh award to Norway, kayaking and walking for 14 days. The voucher was raffled, raising me and few others a substantial amount of money towards our required total. Without the help of Synergy Aviation, I would be just scraping enough money for my expedition, now I am comfortable that I will make it financially. Not to mention a very lucky woman walked off with a trial flying lesson in her pocket! Thanks a lot...

Monaco to Mayfair

Synergy Aviation recently sponsored Pete de Bourcier and Tim Bennett on their epic walk from Monaco to Mayfair in aid of SportsAid. Starting from the Fairmont Hotel in Monte Carlo, the duo finished their 1400km walk in style at the Dorchester Hotel in Mayfair. Congratulating them on the steps of the Dorchester hotel were former England football manager, Kevin Keegan and SportsAid alumni, Roger Black – a former world champion 400m runner – and Tim Farr, who hopes to compete at the Sochi Winter Paralympic Games next year. Speaking to SportsAid afterwards Peter de Bourcier said, “I’m elated that we’ve finished because it’s been such a long journey after 38 days on the road, but I also know that in a few days time I’ll be missing the walking, missing the adventure.” Synergy’s MD commented, “I am so pleased that ‘the boys’ completed this challenge and can only imagine how difficult it must have been at times. We are delighted to have supported them and SportsAid in this unique event which links two of our biggest markets – Monaco and Mayfair.” Sponsorship is still being collected and donations can be made at www.monaco2mayfair.co.uk...

Chobham Carnival

Fairoaks Flight Centre took to the road last week with a stand at the Chobham Carnival. Marcus Almeida who manages the flight centre for Synergy Aviation commented, “it was great to be out in the community, talking about both Fairoaks and our flight training products. We were delighted with the number of experience flights we sold and look forward to taking our stand to other local events this summer.” One of the highlights of the day was a low level ‘flyby’ preformed by senior instructor Andy (with special permission from the CAA) which delighted the record crowd who had gathered in the Surrey...
