Nick started attending UK aerobatic competitions in 1991 and is currently President of the FAI Aerobatics Commission. Jen, his wife, quickly became a willing assistant in the supporting roles necessary to run an effective contest and has been serving as the Registrar and Scoring Director at UK Power championships and contests and is the lead organiser of the British Aerobatic Association’s annual contest calendar. As an active director of the BAeA, Jen is also instrumental in managing membership and contest entries and in encouraging the younger generations to become active in competition and as contest officials. Together Nick and Jen Buckenham have made an enormous contribution to sport aerobatics, both in the United Kingdom and on the international stage. They are known and respected throughout the aerobatic world and the sport owes them a debt of gratitude for their endeavours.
