Hi there, I'm looking for some 'work experience' related to aviation. I don't mind particularly what it is, even if it's just cleaning aircraft, but, I'd prefer something a bit more active. If any one knows of any body who is needing help, or a company willing to take on a mature 16 year old, please contact me with their details.

Probably too late for this year, but you might try asking at gliding clubs in your area if they need winch drivers.

Try Lakes Gliding Club at EGNL - web site with phone numbers - Lakes Gliding Club (http://www.lakesgc.co.uk/).
Other than that, there's a parachute club at Cark, gliding at Chipping and of course Blackpool for power aircraft. It might be worth downloading a copy of Skydemon Light - an excellent (and free) piece of navigatoin and flight-planning software, which will show you all the local aviation sites - SkyDemon Light (http://www.skydemonlight.com)
If you can make Blackpool, pm me as I have a pal who is based there and may be able to give more info, although I'm sure there will be others on here who can advise.
