Aerobility selected as official AeroExpo UK charity for 2012
AeroExpo UK (25-27 May 2012) has chosen Aerobility to be its event charity this year in recognition of the support and work the organisation accomplishes in bringing the gift of flight to the disabled community. This is the 5th year that AeroExpo has supported Aerobility.
"We are delighted to showcase our work at the UK's premier General Aviation and lifestyle exhibition this year, and further strengthen our links with the GA community," says Mike Miller-Smith, Aerobility Chief Executive. "As a one-stop shop to meet manufacturers, suppliers and potential new sponsors the event is perfect for us. It also gives us the chance to say hello and thank you to all our existing friends within GA, who with their help enabled us to give trial flights and PPL training to the disabled community.
"AeroExpo has been and continues to be a hugely positive influence on the charity. We look forward to seeing everyone at the show."
Aerobility is a charity offering disabled people, without exception, the opportunity to fly an aeroplane. Aerobility removes barriers and offers disabled people a real sense of achievement and genuinely changes people's lives. Aerobility's specially adapted aircraft fly from various airfields around the UK providing life changing trial flights and flight training. Aerobility formerly known as the British Disabled Flying Association aims to support all kinds of disabled aviation and represents the needs of disabled people whatever their aviation aspirations. The charity could not exist without the support of many volunteers and organisations that generously give their time and resources to change the lives of over 400 disabled people every year, with participants ranging from disabled kids through to soldiers recently wounded on active duty.
Alex Ayling, AeroExpo UK Director, says, "Aerobility is a charity that has been close to our hearts for the past 5 years. We admire the incredible work that Mike and his team undertake to offer the freedom of flight to the disabled community. We are proud to be associated with Aerobility and have them as our official charity."
