There are four main routes to help Flyability by donating time or expertise, equipment, information or money.
Flyability takes quite a lot of time to run – through administering the scholarship scheme, arranging loans of equipment, raising money and keeping the website up to date. If you’re able to help with any of these tasks then please contact us.
We’re also working on a list of friendly faces – pilots and non pilots who are involved in free flying who are willing to help Flyability pilots to get in the air.
This is one of the most valuable parts of Flyability’s activities. If you have photos or articles about disabled people flying we would be delighted to add them to our success stories pages.
Similarly if you have developed and specific training techniques or adaptions that work for you and might be helpful to other people please do contact us.
Finally we are hoping to develop information to help clubs and schools to add access information to their standard site guides. In order to do this we need to pilot this with a handful of clubs and schools to find out what works and what doesn’t. If you’re involved in producing your club/schools and would be interested in helping us then please get in touch.
Flyability is always grateful for donations of money. This helps us keep our supply of specialist equipment up to date and provide scholarships.
If you would like to make a donation to Flyability by post please send a cheque or postal order (in pounds sterling) to:
