D-Day for Flying For Freedom

Flying for Freedom team are flying over much of the British Isles in micro light aircraft as part of their programme helping wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans in recovery

On 6th June 2015, an intrepid team of pilots set off for a voyage that will see them flying over much of the British Isles in tiny micro light aircraft.  For the past three years, Flying For Freedom have been teaching wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans to fly in these small fixed wing aircraft.

For many of these pilots, the experiences gained through Flying For Freedom has sparked a real interest in flying and all are working towards industry recognised qualifications to set them on a path for future involvement in the world of aviation.

Each year, the Flying For Freedom undertake an expedition; last year saw the team taking off from frozen lakes across Sweden!  They has stayed closer to home this year and hope that they can include more pilots in this voyage as they use four aircraft and allow different pilots to join them at various points around the country.
