ABOVE: Aerobility flying from Lydd launched on 18 April 2024

UK disabled flying charity has partnered with Lydd Aero Club to offer flying lessons and experiences from the Kent-based flying club.

Augmenting its operations at its Blackbushe headquarters in Hampshire, alongside the satellite base of Staffordshire’s Tatenhill, Aerobility is now working with the flight instructor team at Lydd Aero Club to provide opportunities in the south-east.

“We are thrilled to be expanding the charity footprint, by helping more people with disabilities to try something new and realise their new potential,” commented Aerobility Chief Flying Instructor Al Rosser. Lydd Aero Club Chairman Bill Vidal noted that the club was “delighted to be working with the charity,” adding: “Disabled people that fly with us will get the same experience and support in specially adapted aircraft that they would get flying with the charity at Blackbushe or Tatenhill”.

Bookings for lessons and trial flights are available now via this link.
