My Journey from Iran to Scotland

Prestwick Rotarian Adnan Soojeri gave a very personal talk to Prestwick Rotarians on his family background and how he came to settle in Prestwick. In 1981 Adnan came to Scotland to study aeronautical engineering at Scone in Perthshire. He graduated and then went to rejoin his parents and family who had moved from Iran to Kuwait.

However because of the very bad political situation in Kuwait he returned the UK to work as an aeronautical engineer, before finally settling in Prestwick running his aircraft servicing business based at Prestwick Airport.

The company works solely on light aircraft, below 5,700 kg in weight, and most customers are weekend flyers. Adnan is a committed Prestwick Rotarian who, despite working seven days a week, still finds a lot of time and energy to support the activities of the local community through Rotary. He is a well-liked, hard-working and popular Prestwick Rotary Club member.

Nigel Lawrie gave a hearty vote of thanks for a very interesting and informative talk.
