Take-off for Accessible Flying Scheme

An innovative aviation programme for people of all ages with learning difficulties and disabilities is set to launch in Aberdeen, designed to use the challenges of flight and exposure to aviation as a tool for improving the lives of young people.

Aerobility is a registered charity offering disabled people, without exception, the opportunity to fly their own aircraft.  Working alongside Cabro Aviation based at Aberdeen International Airport, the programme uses specially adapted aircraft and trained instructors to remove the barriers to aviation for those less abled.

The course includes all aspects of aviation, from Airfield Operations to Principles of Flight, and the sessions are carefully planned to ensure both knowledge transfer and personal development such as improved social skills, problem-solving ability and confidence.

For more information on the sessions taking place at Aberdeen International Airport on 19th and 20th June, contact Aerobility on 0303 303 1230 or email info@aerobility.com. To find out more about Cabro Aviation, visit their website http://www.cabroaviation.co.uk/
