Roger Morrisroe (known as Romo) has recently achieved 50 years of experience as a gliding instructor, a feat never achieved before in the history of BGA. He began gliding aged 17 in 1955 and joined an Air Cadet course at RAF Henlow, soloing in August 1955, and becoming an instructor in 1958. Romo joined the Nene Valley Gliding Club in 1984 and the instructor's team in 1987 and proved an extremely knowledgeable, hardworking, enthusiastic, popular and highly respected member. Romo would have liked to have retired from the demanding role of CFI but has remained to ensure the Club's survival as there was no-one else suitable.
