Cambridge Airport deputy chairman Terry Holloway has been awarded the
Air League’s highly prestigious Jeffrey Quill Medal by His Royal Highness, the
Duke of Edinburgh at a ceremony in St James’ Palace. Jeffrey Quill was
Supermarine’s distinguished chief test pilot during the Second World War and
the Quill Medal is awarded each year in his memory for significant endeavour in
the field of encouraging air mindedness. 

Terry was awarded the medal at The Air League’s
Annual Reception and Air League Chairman, Keith Mans in outlining reasons for
the Quill Medal being awarded, said: “Terry
Holloway has been a driving force in Aviation for the last 50 years since he
learned to fly as an Air Cadet and has been an Air Experience Pilot for both
the Air Training Corps and the Girls Venture Corps for well over 40 years.” 
Mans added: “Terry Holloway has also
been the driving force behind the Youth in Aviation Initiative started by The
Air League ten years ago, which is now gaining National prominence through ‘The
Leading Edge’.”

Terry is currently a member of the team implementing a new commercial strategy for Cambridge Airport
to become a new aviation hub for the East of England focused on business
aviation and regional airline opportunities. The role reflects his continued
commitment to aviation and supports the recent award decision.

Terry Holloway said: “It is an enormous honour to
have been awarded this medal.  I was delighted that my family were able to
be present at St James’ Palace to see me receive the wonderful award from
Prince Philip.  I look forward to supporting The Air League and its
initiatives in the field of aviation for a number of years to come.”
