Massive Achievement for Welmede Residents enjoying the responsibility, trust and freedom of an Aerobility Flying Experience

On Tuesday 8th March 2016 six older gentleman with learning disabilities from Welmede enjoyed a flying experience at Aerobility including trial flights, visiting the Blackbushe fire station and practice flights in our simulator.

Carl Francis, Welmede Cluster Manager said ‘This was a huge achievement for a group of gentlemen who grew up in an institution.  What to some is a simple activity or experience is a completely new concept for these gentlemen and forms part of a wider programme to promote their independence and integration.  They all loved it and all want to go flying again.  They particularly loved the freedom, trust and responsibility they felt from sitting in a plane and taking the controls.  It was a massive achievement.  They want to go ballooning next.  Thank you Aerobility – everything was brilliant.’
