It is with great regret that the death is announced of Nicholas Hawkings-Byass, on Friday, 7th March.

Nicholas developed MFH Helicopters into the leading aerial application contractor in the UK and was well-known throughout the country for his work on bracken control. He will be sadly missed as an enthusiast for bracken control and as a driving force in the aerial application industry. Without his dogged determination it is unlikely that the business of aerial application of pesticides and herbicides would have survived recent challenges. Those who continue to use a helicopter to apply asulam are in his debt. Our sympathies are with his family.
