Handiflight 2016 Gruyere Switzerland 7th - 14th August 2016

Every two years, the Aero Club of Gruyère organise “Handiflight”, a worldwide meeting of disabled pilots enabling them to share experiences and enjoy incredible flying in the Swiss mountains. Opportunities may also be available for gliding, ballooning and other aviation pursuits. In the past, disabled pilots from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Canada, USA, Sweden, UK, Belgium, France, Germany and Italy have attended and enjoyed the pleasure of flying in this stunningly beautiful region. Over the years Aerobility have attended this event with both our aircraft and flyers enjoying this week long event.


This year there are a limited number of places available and at this stage you are invited to apply to be placed on a list of interested persons. To achieve the most from attendance, we would envisage that participants, whilst not, necessarily requiring a full PPL, would as a minimum, have attained a basic competency in aircraft handling. As a guideline we expect the costs involved to be in the region of £600 for the return flight out, road transport, and accommodation, although internal flight and other optional aviation experiences can add considerably to this amount. Driving out and attending by road is also possible. The current plan is to attend with three Aerobility aircraft although exact numbers are still to be decided.

We will contact those chosen with further details and a more accurate costing, at that stage we will require a deposit to be paid.

Initial applications should be made to handiflight@aerobility.com
