Surprise Award for SAC!
It was a big surprise when Scottish Aero Club Chair, William Scott, was called up to receive an award for Services to the Local Community on behalf of the Club at the Perth Airport and ACS annual awards event on Friday 3rd November.
Both ACS and the SAC recognise that building and maintaining good relationships within the local community and those we engage with across Scotland is vital for the future of the airfield.
The award was given in recognition of SAC’s contribution to creating good relationships with local schools and scout groups among others. Ladies Day and our annual Aviation Without Borders flights for disadvantaged families were both highlighted.
Our very own Iain Hutchison, there in his capacity as one of Perth City Leadership Forum’s ambassadors, presented William with the award on the night. To learn more about Perth Ambassadors go to
It is great recognition for our Club and the work we carry out with ACS, AST and SCAA to provide a broad experience of the activities at the Airport for community group visits.
