Rally 2015

A three-part series entitled Big Cats begins tonight on BBC1 at 8:00pm. It features the work of LAA member Alan Wilson, one of the world’s leading experts studying cheetah movements in the wild.

Alan headed the project that built an LAA Permit Groppo Trail, equipped with high tech photo and tracking equipment to track and record the big cats and their prey. Light Aviation featured the project in the July, August and October 2017 issues. The aircraft needed a number of modifications which were facilitated by Groppo agent Graham Smith, working closely with the LAA Engineering Department.
