Dave, a valued member of the South East Wales club for many years, has kept local hang gliding alive. He has coached many pilots, often with dual flights, volunteered in running the club and its sites, and helped the smooth running of local and national competitions. In April 2019, witnessing a pilot in difficulties at Pandy, ‘Trigger’ located the downed pilot and landed to provide first aid, and feedback to the emergency services. He later returned the injured pilot’s equipment to his vehicle, moving it to safety before the long walk to retrieve his own glider. His actions had a profound result on the pilot’s eventual recovery.
