New Zealand Aeronautical Trusts Limited exists to encourage young people to achieve excellence in the field of aviation and Ian Diamond was a long standing supporter and one time Director of the Trust Company.. Upon his passing, the New Zealand Aeronautical Trust determined to establish a trust fund which would memorialise his memory and facilitate some of his passionate ideas in terms of young people. Ian was a remarkable man and a senior executive at Air New Zealand who always wanted to see young New Zealanders strive for excellence and attain qualifications which would assist in the career development particularly in the aviation engineering sector.
