Wing Commander Ken Wallis was born 26th April 1916. He served with distinction in RAF Bomber Command during World War II but is better known in the aviation world for his autogyro designs, flying and records, of which he holds 34. Indeed, he’s well known even beyond light aviation circles because of his enthusiasm for aviation and his willingness to share that enthusiasm with anyone who shows an interest. At the time this citation was written he was believed to still be flying his beloved autogyros at the age of 96.
