Nicholas Hawkings-Byass

I was saddened to learn of the death of Nicholas Hawkings-Byass, the founder of MFH Helicopters and driving force behind the aerial application of asulam for bracken control.  He was well known throughout the UK amongst the bracken control community and he leaves a large gap.

Without his dogged determination it is unlikely that the business of aerial application of pesticides and herbicides would have survived recent challenges, and all those who use a helicopter to apply asulam for bracken control are in his debt.
