Dates for your diary. (Although provisional)

1) Young Adult day - Saturday 5th June 2021

2) Young Children day - Saturday 2nd October 2021

Following a meeting on Sunday 28th March, the HW committee decided that, due to anticipated relaxation in social distancing expected on the 10th of May, we are able, in principle, to go ahead with our day for young people on Saturday 5th June.

A final decision as whether we are able to run the event will be made at our next meeting on May the 9th. We will then update everyone. We may start the booking process ahead of this date but all bookings will of course be subject to the final decision.

Our Pilots

Helping Wings pilots are all volunteers, providing their services free of charge to the charity, whether using their own or group-owned aircraft, or renting from the Jersey Aero Club. They come from a wide variety of flying backgrounds, from airline pilots to private pilots. They all, however, must have a minimum level of experience ( 100 hours as pilot in command ) in order to fly for Helping Wings. Of course all pilots need to be correctly licensed, to be in current flying practice, and to conform with all other relevant regulations.

For each event, a Pilots Approval Checklist must be completed. Typically a pilot may be asked to fly two or three 30 minute flights during a Helping Wings Day.

Flying for Helping Wings is an enormously rewarding experience. We welcome new pilots. If you are correctly qualified and meet our minimum experience level, we would love to hear from you.
