Handiflight 2018 – around the world Your chance to participate!

Aerobility Flyers have always been privileged to be invited and participate in the biannual Handiflight disabled pilots gathering in Switzerland. The Handiflight team has just announced an incredible project – disabled pilots flying around the world and Aerobility Flyers have been invited to participate. Please see below the following message and invitation from Daniel Ramseier the project organiser:

Dear friends,

Organized every year from 2007 to 2009 and every two years since 2011, Handiflight will see its next edition take place in 2018. But this time instead of inviting you to Gruyère we will leave with two light aircraft to meet other pilots around the world for a 9 months journey. These two CTLS, will be flown by Guillaume (Féral) and Paolo (Poccobelli). They will be alone on board to Australia and then to cross the Pacific and the Atlantic. We offer you the opportunity of piloting these airplanes for several periods of two weeks with Paolo and Guillaume as safety pilots on the following regions : Australia (March), New Zealand (April), South America (July) and North America (August), ,

The requirements are to have a PPL(A) (or be very close to get it) and speak English or/and French. All the aeronautical expenses (airplanes, fuel, taxes, etc.) are paid by Handiflight, but you will have to pay for food, lodging and airline ticket to join us. We hope to get discounted tickets.

These are not local flights but travelling, which can sometimes be long flights. As you can imagine, it will be impossible to satisfy the wishes of all. I will be solely responsible for the difficult choices that I would have to do. Thank you for your understanding.

The purpose of this first contact is to estimate the number of pilots potentially interested; it is not a formal commitment .

If you are interested in participating in this incredible project then please in the first instance email handiflight@aerobility.com

We will also send you a preliminary information pack.
