Treloar’s students take to the sky
February 14, 2022 / 9:48 am
What better way to start the day than soaring off the runway of your choice? That was the treat in store for our students as Aerobility visited our campus.
Aerobility are the leading charity in disabled aviation in the UK. They joined us for two days of simulator flights, offering one on one coaching to our students as they took to the skies.
Using the flight simulator meant that all our students, regardless of their age or medical condition could enjoy the exhilarating feeling of flying a plane.
Each student had the chance to take off, fly through the skies and then take on a tricky landing, all whilst the Aerobility team gave them expert advice on technique and tailored the experience to each person’s needs.
It is fantastic to work with partners like Aerobility as we enrich our curriculum and strive together towards joint goals of removing barriers for young disabled people.
Next half-term some of our students are heading over to the Aerobility HQ where they will take on a live flight, heading up in real aircraft – and we can’t wait!
