MOTIVATION

Air Troop in KZN Area proposed this badge to teach younger scouts the basics of flying as a lead in to Air Planner and Air Traffic Controller as there were few exciting activities for junior Air Scouts that were affordable to the less affluent troops.

The AACs forum concurred with this thinking.


Proposed by:

Hugh (Buzz) Macey

National Com. for Scout programme.
