Henry Hill Memorial
Posted 08 Nov 2023
The Fly UK community recently lost one of its most prominent figures, UKV1213 Henry Hill. Since joining in 2005, Henry consistently featured as a weekly top ten pilot and proudly celebrated amassing 12000 airline hours in December last year. Henry also regularly attended real work events and could be seen on Skytrack map on an almost daily basis crossing the Atlantic.
Henry has been a prominent figure in the Fly UK community from the very start and consistently featured as a weekly top ten pilot
Many members and staff had the pleasure of meeting Henry in person at various real-world events over the years at Sherburn Aero Club, Glasgow and the International Flight Sim Convention in Birmingham. He was Fly UK through and through, a true community member and ambassador for the virtual airline.

Fly UK will host a Memorial Event flight this weekend as a mark of respect by flying Henry's favourite across the Atlantic from London Heathrow to New York. Whilst this is a longer route, it would be wrong not to fly the route he loved so much. The flight will take 7 to 8 hours and timings are intended to accommodate members who have other Saturday family commitments. As such departure will be at 13:00 to arrive around 20:40.
We welcome all members to join and chat, come and go as able throughout the afternoon. For those unable to commit to a ong haul, a shorter evening option is available and scheduled to arrive with the main group.
