1. Mr James Crocker 291x300

    Jim Crocker 1945-2019

    It is with great sadness that BPA has learned of the death of Jim Crocker. A towering figure in our sport, he was the longest-serving Chair of BPA Council, from 1983-90, after which he became our longest-serving Vice President. He was also a Vice President of the Royal Aero Club of the United Kingdom, and Chairman of Trustees of the Royal Aero Club Trust, a registered charity whose flying for youth bursaries have enabled many younger BPA members to progress in our sport. A Midlands-based lawyer by profession, specialising in criminal cases, Jim’s natural style was competitive and combative, and he never failed to make an impression.
