Boost for next generation of pilots

Farnborough Airport is helping local youngsters follow in the footsteps of Britain's first aviator, Samuel Cody, who first flew from the airport more than a hundred years ago. They're awarding scholarships that train teenagers how to become pilots.

For many the cost - tens of thousands of pounds - would be unaffordable without the help from such scheme. It's also keeping up a tradition of local people learning to fly at the airport, as our Transport Correspondent Mike Pearse reports.
