Marion Wooldridge: Marion has had a PPL for well over 20 years. She has IMC and night ratings and, in 2007, obtained her twin rating. Professionally, Marion initially qualified as a veterinary surgeon and has been for many years a professor of epidemiology specialising in the international spread of disease. Until her retirement a few years ago Marion’s epidemiological work involved lots of international travel, and she took the opportunity to hire local aircraft to fly whenever possible including Europe, America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Until recently, Marion was an Instructor with the Air Cadets. She also has a share in a White Waltham based aircraft.

Marion joined the WLAC Ground School Instructor Team in late 2016 and is currently the Instructor for Module 2: Meteorology and Human Resources and Limitations.
