First Disability Flying Lessons to Take Off in South-East

UK disability flying charity Aerobility has partnered with Lydd Aero Club to provide flying lessons and experience flights for disabled people at Lydd Airport in Kent. 


The charity, which has its headquarters at Blackbushe Airport in Hampshire, and which also operates a satellite operation from Tatenhill in Staffordshire, will launch disability flying at the new location on April 18.


“This exciting new partnership comes as the charity grows and enables us to spread the magic and wonder of flight to new areas of the country,” said Aerobility Chief Flying Instructor Al Rosser.


“We are thrilled to be expanding the charity footprint, by helping more people with disabilities to try something new and realise their true potential.” 


This month one of the Lydd Aero Club PA28 Warrior aircraft will be flown to Blackbushe to be modified and branded with Aerobility livery. Pilots at Lydd Aero Club will be trained and qualified to fly as Aerobility instructors using the modified aircraft. 


Bookings for flights at Lydd, Blackbushe or Tatenhill can be made at
