    We also hope to raise £100,000, ALL of the money raised will fund Aerobilitys’ flying activities with disabled people and will enable Aerobility to buy and pay for running costs of our own flying simulator over the next 5 years.
    Aerobility provides 'experience of a lifetime' trial flying lessons for as many terminally ill and disabled people as possible every year, also subsidised flying days for other disability charities such as Help for Heroes, Battle Back' and at-cost instruction and qualification flight training to members.
