Disabled pilots solo #1

A first solo flight is a big achievement for anyone, but even more so for some of our disabled pilots.

This month has seen two disabled students flying their first solo including Mark, who flew his first solo his week.

We are doubly impressed that Mark went solo in just over 9 hours of training.

Mark flew with the Shadow Flight Centre, based at Old Sarum, who specialise in training for pilots that need modified aircraft controls and was supported through Flying Scholarships for Disabled People.
