Helping Wings is a Jersey charity, with the aim of sharing the excitement of flying in a light aircraft with local disadvantaged children and teenagers who would not otherwise get the chance. Since 2008 with the support of our members, partners, and pilots, over 150 children have enjoyed a day out at the aero club.
To quote one parent today was a life changing experience...
Plans are also being made to provide pilot training and flight experience for the physically disabled, of all ages, using a special adaptation to the aircraft controls.
