Falling with Style (talk) – Lottie Dale

April 26, 2020 @ 3:00 pm-4:00 pm

In Lottie’s own words…

My dad was a Spitfire, Hurricane, Mustang pilot in WW2 – he passed his love of flying over to me…

…Unable to learn to fly due to the costs involved, I took the next best route and learned how to fall out of a perfectly serviceable aircraft. My first jump was at the age of 31 – and I had a malfunctioning canopy on 12th jump – my second free-fall! Undeterred, I persevered and over the next 17 years completed more than 1200 jumps.

I have been part of the Brittany Ferries Air Display Team and the Daily Express Flying Crusaders (affectionately known as the Tumbling Tarts!) – including demos onto Normandy Beaches, Biggin Hill Air Show, Paris Air Show and even Wembley Stadium (it looks very small from the air!) I have taken part in Women’s British Record Jumps – and competed at National Level.

Lottie offers an in-depth & often amusing overview entitled: Falling With Style

Powerpoint presentation – lots of exciting slides plus I bring my Jumpsuit, Log Books and Medals.

Cost £5 per person and includes Pier Entry
