British Aviation Group Dinner

Last night was the British Aviation Group Annual Dinner at the Sheraton Grand Park Lane. 360 aviation and aerospace professionals attended, and Aerobility was lucky enough to be the chosen charity for the evening. Nearly £5000 was donated by the attendees for Aerobility on the night! This is a fabulous result and hugely beneficial to the charity and those we support.

We were kindly hosted by Chairman Graham Bolton, and the attached picture is with our friend and Toastmaster Richard Birtchnell. Great to meet so many aviation professionals including Heathrow Chief Executive John Holland-Kaye who also spoke at the event.

This is our seventh year working with the British Aviation Group and one we hope continues into the future.

Whatever the disability, we can get you safely in to the air!

In July this year our Aerobility Flying Instructor, Norman had the pleasure of flying with an incredible lady named Julie Davies.

Julie is blind and a double leg amputee, but still retains her awe-inspiring and adventurous spirit.

After being hoisted into the aircraft and with her son in the back seat, Julie was raring to go! 

Julie told us that hearing how things sound through the headphones and the sensation of the aircraft as it accelerated into take-off were wonderful to experience. Once in flight, Julie was able to take the controls and feel how the aircraft responded to her commands.

Both Julie and her son found the flight exhilarating and hope that others read this and understand the positive outcomes they can enjoy from considering a trial flight with Aerobility. 

Julie kindly sent us this photograph from the day.

If you know anyone that could benefit from our accessible aviation based and flying services, we'd love to hear from them - or call 0303 303 1230.

Huge thank you to Cranleigh Lions!

A huge thank you to our friends Rod and Paul from the Lions Club of Cranleigh and District, who visited us on Monday to deliver an amazing donation of £1,000!

This funds will go a long way in helping us continue to make flight accessible for disabled people.

Thank you again Cranleigh Lions!

Congratulations to Mark Hemming!

Huge congratulations to Mark Hemming who completed the Parallel London 1k on Sunday in just 8 minutes 27 seconds!

Mark decided to attempt a run, not something he has done since his injury, but incredibly ran almost half the distance - what an amazing achievement.

If all that wasn't enough, Mark also raised a phenomenal £1,000 in support of Aerobility - another significant achievement all on it's own.

Thank you so much to Mark and to everyone who showed their support through sponsorship.

These funds will go a long way in helping Aerobility continue making the magic of flight accessible to disabled people.
