Tuesday 16th June - an exciting day in Aerobility history

Yesterday Blackbushe was buzzing with excitement as two incredible flight challenges landed at Aerobility HQ.

First to arrive was Aerobility friend Captain Judy Rice, partner of Buzz Aldrin, who had amended the route of her round the world flight to include a stop at Aerobility. Judy arrived in her Citation Mustang Business Jet and was joined by Aerobility Flyer Nathan Doidge, who won the flight in a recent prize drawer.

Judy's Think Global Flight is an around the world flight promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) through aviation and aerospace education, inspiring students to succeed and excel in these critical areas. Some of Aerobilitys Aviation Education Programme students were there to welcome Judy and talk about about their achievements in S.T.E.M subjects.

Shortly after Judy had landed the Flying for Freedom team touched down in their Microlights as part of their Round Britain 2015 flight. Flying for Freedom, a charity close to Aerobiltiy's heart that seek to enable recovery for wounded, injured and sick service men by supporting them through Microlight flying training.

Overall it was an amazing and truly inspirational afternoon and Aerobiltiy would like to thank Captain Judy Rice, the Flying For Freedom team and all of our supporters for making the day so special.
