Southend District Flying Club

Operated from Unknown to Unknown

Founders/Directors – Mr David Giles and Mr George Roberts (Trustees)

Yet another seemingly obscure flying organisation that was around possibly during the early to mid-80s was Southend District Flying Club, a company about which very little is known. The only information that is available seems to suggest that this ‘club’ in whatever form it took, possessed a small fleet of Victa Airtourers which were registered to a Mr David Giles and a Mr George Roberts who acted as trustees for SDFC. All four Airtourers were visibly recorded as being at Southend during March 1984, although it appears that a couple of these aircraft (*) were simply passing through SEN having been procured for the ‘Scottish Aerobatics Flying Club’. If anyone can provide any extra details then please contact us on the email address below.
