George Errington was a well-known and popular test pilot from 1935 to 1955. His name appeared frequently in aviation magazines of the time. He joined the Airspeed Company at Portsmouth in 1934 and became their Chief Test Pilot in 1939. Test flying in those days were vastly different from today. During the Second World War he was responsible for much of the testing of the Horsa assault glider, which included a number of 'incidents'. After the war he was responsible for testing the elegant Ambassador airliner prior to its service with BEA. When de Havilland took over Airspeed, George moved to Hatfield in 1953. Here he was involved the flight testing and delivery of Comets, Herons and Vampire Trainers.
