Following four years of hard work, determination, patience and countless static exhibits at major events including the Farnborough Air Shows 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014, and British Military Tournament 2011, Yateley School and their proud partner schools, Court Moor and Kings College saw their aircraft, G-YTLY take to the skies in 2013. On August 15th 2015 the G-YTLY aircraft featured in a display at the Amy Johnson Memorial Airshow at Herne Bay, Kent. The plane was flown by Pilot John Michie.
