Inspirational videos featuring disabled people whose lives have been changed for the better by flying are at the centre of a new on-line campaign by flying charity Aerobility.
The ‘Flying Stars’ video series shines a spotlight on the journeys of disabled individuals who have discovered their passion for flying and achieved their dreams of becoming aviators.
Each Flying Star comes from diverse backgrounds and has conquered personal challenges with the power of flight.
The campaign is designed to raise awareness about the transformative power of aviation and the impact it can have on the lives of people living with disabilities, encouraging them to get involved with Aerobility.
One of Aerobility’s Flying Stars, Amy, is diagnosed with generalised osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease, both of which have had a profound impact on her mobility and daily life.
“Aerobility has changed my life for the better, massively,” said Amy, pictured above with instructor Richard Piper.
“I have a purpose and something to live for, which is something I had lost for a very long time.”
Aerobility operates virtually UK-wide and flies from Blackbushe Airport in Hampshire and Tatenhill Airfield in Staffordshire, offering a range of experience flights, educational courses, and scholarships to ensure anyone can fly.
“Since our humble beginnings in 1993, we have been on a remarkable journey,” said Mike Miller-Smith, CEO at Aerobility.
“We've touched the lives of countless individuals with disabilities, empowering them to achieve their dreams of flight.”
