Residential Student Bobby gets a taste of being a Pilot!
One of our Residential students, Bobby, who is a wheelchair user and studying IT Level 3, enjoyed his first ever flying lesson last Monday at Tatenhill Airfield.
Alan Hamer, Director of Care Services & Supported Living at QAC, learnt of Bobby's interest in aviation, and being an aviation enthusiast and a licensed Pilot himself, provided Bobby with the opportunity to take on a lesson with an experienced flight instructor.
The flight lasted roughly 45 minutes, during which Bobby was able to take full control of the aircraft under the watchful eye of the instructor, who expressed that Bobby did very well for his first time in control of an aircraft!
Since the lesson, Bobby has expressed his interest in obtaining a Pilot licence in the future!
