Every year we choose a different charity to support, sometimes they have an aviation focus, but not always.
We tend to work with smaller charities whom we can really engage with and get involved (we certainly hope to see them on the flight deck during some of our events), especially during the week long “WorldFlight” event.
If you run a charity and would like to get involved please get in touch.
2020 Charity – Aerobility
Aerobility is a registered charity founded in 1993 offering disabled people, without exception, the opportunity to fly an aeroplane.
For some, just that amazing first flight is enough to change their outlook on disability forever:
“If I can fly a plane, what else can I do?”
Others, realising that the fantasy of flight is truly in their grasp, decide to continue their training – many all the way to securing a Private Pilot’s Licence, some even with an outlook to commercial flying.
Aerobility provides ‘experience of a lifetime’ trial flying lessons for as many terminally ill and disabled people as possible every year, also subsidised flying days for other disability charities and at-cost instruction and qualification flight training to disabled people.
