Mel White

Mel White – Vice President

Mel has worked in Aerospace throughout his career; he is a Fellow of the RAeS and was a qualified company pilot for 15 years, before ending his full-time career with Honeywell in 2019.

When Polly Vacher (now FSDP Vice Patron) needed avionics support for her Wings around the World challenge in 2001, she turned to Bendix/King in Europe, which at that time was managed by Mel.  Following Polly’s inspirational journey, he decided to provide business sponsorship for scholarships through the Skyforce business.

Since the initial work with FSDP in 2001, Mel has focused on helping with candidate selection, and flying course follow-up once they became scholars.  He became a Vice President in 2019 to help improve focus on corporate sponsorship.
