HRS member Anne Grant has done much research regarding Amy’s connection with the Isle of Wight.

2014 marks the 75th anniversary of Amy’s time flying into Ryde Airport with Portsmouth, Southsea and Isle of Wight Aviation Ltd.

Anne says:

‘Amy and Jim Mollison at Ryde Airport.
Amy landed on more than one occasion at Ryde Airport on the Isle of Wight, with her record breaking aviator husband Jim Mollison. Lionel Balfour, who with some business partners including the legendary air circus pilot Sir Alan Cobham, started the ‘Spithead Express’ air ferry service between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. Pioneering entrepreneur Lionel started Ryde Airport.’
