Aerobility takes delivery of the first Reborn Warrior


Reborn Aviation, Europe’s leading remanufacturer of light aircraft, has delivered its first Reborn Warrior to Aerobility.

The Reborn Warrior is a re-manufactured PA-28 aircraft with advanced 21st century technology, equipment and safety features, coupled with new-build quality standards. The aircraft has been specifically adapted for Aerobility to enable all ranges of disabilities to fly in it. These include, adapted flying controls in addition to standard Reborn Garmin G500 glass cockpit, bespoke paintwork and interior. The aircraft, engine and avionics all come with a warranty - a unique offering within General Aviation.

The two organisations have collaborated closely on this aircraft over the past six months. As a result, they have created a machine that should deliver the very best flying experiences for both pilots and passengers for many years to come. The Reborn Warrior has benefited from over fifty separate upgrades, including a Lycoming factory re-built engine, a new propeller, avionics including terrain and traffic awareness, aerodynamic fairings and 3 LED landing lights, to name but a few.

Edmund Hewertson, founder of Reborn Aviation, said: “We are very proud to be working with Aerobility and excited to see our product being put to a good use. Quality, safety and integrity are at the heart of all our aircraft - this has such great synergy with what Aerobility do. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the charity and perhaps seeing even more Reborn Warriors’ contributing to their success.”

Mike Miller-Smith MBE, CEO Aerobility, added: “The PA28 has been a key part of our aircraft operations for over 10 years, with robust and reliable performance alongside attributes which make them suitable for disabled flyers such as level access and our certified hand control. As soon as we heard about the Reborn Aviation Warrior it immediately made sense, bringing the aircraft back to better than new with the latest avionics, aerodynamic modifications and safety features. Safe, reliable, accessible and lowest cost operations are so important for the charity and we believe this aircraft will help us achieve this goal”
