Since 1979 Gordon has been committed to the Durham & Northumberland Wing Air Training Corp (ATC) – first as a civilian instructor, then a commissioned officer, now as a volunteer. During his time he has provided support to 3 Wing Commanders and numerous Squadron Commanders.


“He has inspired many young people to pursue a career which might otherwise be beyond their reach”.


At age 82, Gordon is still actively involved and relishes the opportunity of mixing with young people, many from low-income households, so they may gain from his experience and knowledge and who may also aspire to a worthwhile career.

Throughout his entire time with the ATC he has promoted the service and been committed to helping local youngsters aspire to a career and keenly engaged with them.
