The Mobility Roadshow 2013

Last week, Aerobility were very pleased to exhibit at The Mobility Roadshow's 30th Anniversary Event in Telford. The roadshow was a fantastic platform on which to promote the work of Aerobility to those who may wish to participate. We were able to demonstrate to many people the opportunities available to them, with our mobile simulator giving everyone the chance to really experience what fixed-wing flying is like, and our balloon base on show to demonstrate ease of accessibility.

Over the course of the three days we met hundreds of great people, and we had our cameras at the ready to get snaps of all of our new friends! Here's just a few of the people we had the pleasure of speaking to....

At 90, Percy Simmonds is the UK's oldest known Town Crier. He took some time out with Brian to learn more about the mechanics of our new ballooning venture.

Simon Weston, OBE, an inspirational veteran of the Falkland Island War. Simon was badly injured when the Sir Galahad was bombed during the Bluff Cove Air Attacks and has since made a significant contribution to charities supporting people living with disfigurements.

We were also very pleased to welcome The Rockabellas down to our stand. The glamorous girls were visiting the show to provide some entertainment and we think they did a great job! You can check out their website at

Another inspiration individual to visit us was Paralympic athlete Martine Wright. Martine was injured in the 7/7 bombings, but went on to compete as a sitting volleyball players at London 2012. Her amazing achievements have been recognised with the BBC Helen Rollason Award. We were very pleased to show her our mobile simulator and hope she might consider taking to the skies for her next challenge!

We had a great time and would like to thank the Mobility Roadshow team for such a great event. We'd also like to thank everyone who came to meet us - if you would like anymore information please don't hesitate to contact us on Roll on Mobility Roadshow 2014!
