Busy times at Aerobility
The last few weeks have seen a cascade of activity at Blackbushe, culminating tonight with Nathan Doidge flying Chris Evans on The One Show at 7.00 – Aerobility has been on TV and in the press more often than ever before, for a lot of good reasons:
The Global Flight Simulator Challenge has been an amazing success. Our disabled-adapted simulator has paid for itself, 92 pilots flying it round the world in 10 days, picking up a Guinness World Record on the way, together with enough funds to cover its purchase, and maintenance for five years. Now, at last, it really is ‘ours’!
The 10 day event drew in an astonishing range of celebrities, turning our Blackbushe home into a name-dropper’s paradise: Buzz Aldrin, Bruce Dickinson, and Joe Pasquale were among the many celebrity pilots, with Chris Evans really getting on board, literally, with Nathan tonight.
We’re expecting our recent high profile to show a lot more disabled people that they too can experience flight ‘from the sharp end’ - in the cockpit with the controls in their hands. That first awakening experience can have lasting effects – after all, if you can fly a plane, what else can you do? If you are disabled you can fly with us: get in touch, and get into the air. It’s the most fun you can have sitting down! Our website has all the details you’ll need.
Of course, the more people who fly with us, the more money we need to raise – we make flight financially as well as physically accessible, and we need the funds to pay for it. If you like what you’ve seen, you can make a donation through our website homepage, and give a lift to disabled lives. Thanks!
