Aerobility to provide flights for people living with a disability this August!

Thursday 11th July 2024

We're incredibly pleased to announce our partnership with Aerobility and Cornwall Airport Newquay this August, to provide an opportunity for specialist disabled flying in the far South West of England!

Aerobility is an inspiring charity that enables people with physical or hidden disabilities to fly an aircraft. We're very excited to work with Aerobility and Cornwall Airport Newquay to bring these fantastic flight experiences to Cornwall and the South West this August. Founded in 1993, the charity changes lives by providing anyone with any disability access to the magic and wonder of flight. Taking control of an aircraft drives a focus on capability and encourages their flyers to ask the question, 'If I can fly an aeroplane, what else can I do?', whilst offering the ultimate feeling of freedom and escape from the restrictions of disability.

We'd love to make this a more regular fixture, so we are working closely with the team to make this event a huge success! As a training organisation ourselves, we are all incredibly passionate about sharing our love of all things aviation with others, and teaming up with Aerobility will allow us to open up the world of aviation to so many more individuals this summer!

These incredible flights will operate from our home base at Cornwall Airport Newquay, a regional airport with professional facilities and an all-weather runway. Andrew Boomer, Operations Director, Cornwall Airport Newquay said "Teaming up with Flynqy Pilot Training, Cornwall Airport Newquay is excited to announce our collaboration with Aerobility, championing inclusivity in aviation. Together, we're paving the way for transformative flying experiences for individuals living with disabilities in the South West."

Bookings are now open for the first flights for people with disabilities with Flynqy Pilot Training from Cornwall Airport Newquay. These flights will be available on a trial basis between the 16th and 18th of August 2024.

Aerobility Chief Flying Instructor Al Rosser, said: "This exciting new opportunity shows that the charity is serious about growing its national catchment areas and enables us to spread the magic and wonder of flight to new and remote areas of the UK. We are thrilled to be expanding our offering to Cornwall, which could help more people living with disabilities to try something new and realise their true capabilities."

Disabled people that fly with Aerobility and Flynqy Pilot Training from Cornwall Airport Newquay this August will get the same experience and support that they would get flying with the charity at Blackbushe, Tatenhill or Lydd as some of the Charity's experienced staff will be on hand throughout the weekend!

Bookings for flights at Newquay, Blackbushe, Tatenhill or Lydd can be made at
