Aerobility is a charity offering disabled people, without exception, the opportunity to fly an aeroplane. Through the power of flight and aviation, Aerobility removes barriers and offers people with disabilities a real sense of life-changing freedom. For us, aviation is a tool that can be used to unlock potential and allow people to discover their abilities.
Outcomes are simple yet powerful. For many people living with the reality of disability, the chances to exercise choice, break routine and test the limits are few and far between. However, with the realisation that flying an aeroplane is an achievable possibility, the only other question to ask is – what else can I do?
With a fleet of aircraft that can be accessed from across the UK, our very own static and mobile flight simulators, and a dedicated team of inspirational flight instructors and volunteers, we are able to provide a range of services to those with disabilities.
Aerobility offers everything from once in a lifetime flights, regular training sessions in the flight simulator, weekly ground-school classes and flying training right through to group flying days and exhibitions. Our aim is to be entirely inclusive, with no disability being a barrier to participation.
The organisation was started in 1993, became a charity in 2000 and has grown rapidly over the last 5 years. With our office at Blackbushe Airport giving us a great social and administrative base, we have been able to improve and increase the services that we offer to the disability community.
Aerobility is driven by individuals who know all too well about the frustrations and challenges of living with a disability. Together with our flyers, partners, supporters and volunteers we are working hard to remove some of those frustrations and challenges.
