Aerobility

About

Aerobility provides a range of flying and flying related experiences and activities for adults and young people with a different disabilities or health conditions which require their support from Aerobility's team and adapted aircraft.

Experience Flights: A once in a lifetime experience or the beginning of your journey into aviation – trial flights are an ideal way to introduce yourself to the world of flying.

Flight Training: For those that want to pursue the dream of flight, our CAA approved flight instructors can take you through to a Private Pilot’s Licence and beyond. Aircraft Hire: Aircraft available for private hire to disabled pilots who hold the necessary qualifications.

Groundschool: To ensure that you meet the necessary qualifications, or just for those with an interest, we run regular Groundschool lessons and provide examination facilities. Simulator Sessions: The Aerobility flight simulator can be used for training exercises, introductory sessions before taking to the real aircraft, or as a fun experience.

Junior Aspiring Pilot Programme: This programme introduces young people with learning disabilities and/or physical impairments aged between 12 and 18 years to the magic of flight. This programme aims to use aviation as a tool to provide young people with transferable skills that they can take in to education and employment.

Aviation Education Programme: This programme has the same aim as the Junior Aspiring Pilot Programme but is totally ground-based. Over 16 sessions participants will be introduced to a range of aviation careers that can be achieved without stepping foot in a cockpit. This programme is suitable for young people aged between 12 and 18 years with learning and/ or physical disabilities and is run by volunteers who have worked across the aviation industry.

About Aerobility

Aerobility is a UK based, registered charity. Founded in 1993, they change lives by providing anyone, with any disability with access to the magic and wonder of flight. They do this because taking the controls of an aircraft drives a focus on capability and encourages their flyers to ask the question ‘If I can fly an aeroplane, what else can I do?’ This makes everything else in life feel that little bit more achievable, whilst offering the ultimate feeling of freedom and escape from restrictions of disability.
Aerobility represents the needs of those living with disability in to aviation and is recognised as the leading expert in disabled flying.

From humble beginnings back in 1993 to their current fleet of 4 aircraft with a head office at Blackbushe and operations from Tatenhill as well, they support nearly 1,000 disabled people per year with access to the magic and wonder of flight.

Aerobility provides once in a life-time 'Experience Flights’ to as many terminally ill and disabled people as possible as well as subsidised flying for individuals and other disability charities.
A user lead organisation, Aerobility is run largely by disabled aviators, for disabled people. Through various fundraising initiatives and careful management strategies we allow disabled people to fly for a fraction of the commercial rate. Aerobility also provides advice, knowledge and advocacy for disabled people who wish to fly, and is the representative body for disabled aviation within the UK.
