Aerobility partners with Flynqy Pilot Training and Cornwall Airport Newquay to provide flights for people living with a disability



Flying lessons for people living with disabilities will be available from Cornwall Airport Newquay for a limited time in August 2024.

UK disabled flying charity Aerobility has partnered with Flynqy Pilot Training to provide an opportunity for specialist disabled flying in the far South West of England.

Aerobility is a charity which provides anyone, with any disability, access to the magic and wonder of flight. The charity has headquarters at Blackbushe Airport in Hampshire and operates from Tatenhill in Staffordshire. Aerobility is also working with the flight instructor team at Lydd Aero Club to provide services across the South East.

Together, we're paving the way for transformative flying experiences for individuals living with disabilities in the South West."

“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.”

Flynqy Pilot Training Operations Manager, Zara Dinnacombe, added, “Aerobility is an inspiring charity that enables people with physical or hidden disabilities to fly an aircraft. We’re very excited to be working with Aerobility and Cornwall Airport Newquay to bring these fantastic flight experiences to Cornwall and the South West this August.

“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, 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!

“Disabled people that fly with us 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!”
