Help for Heroes
Hello and Welcome from Help for Heroes Flying for Freedom
Thank you for visiting the Flying For Freedom fundraising page.
Supported by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry through their Endeavor Fund, Flying for Freedom provides microlight flying training and recovery services. Wounded, Injured and Sick (WIS) servicemen and women are taught to fly and are encouraged to train towards becoming Assistant Flying Instructors (AFI).
Those who qualify take an active role in supporting recovery activities or progress on to careers in the Aviation sector. The best way of looking at F4F is as a flying school for the disabled, staffed and run and staffed by wounded and injured servicemen and women.
In November 2014 a team of qualified pilots from Flying for Freedom are mounting a daring expedition to Antarctica. They plan to take 5 microlights to Antarctica and make Aviation History by be being:
> First to fly Flexwing Microlights in Antarctica
> First to fly Flexwing Microlights to the South Pole
> First to fly Flexwing Microlight over Mt. Vinson
An embedded camera team will film all the attempts for a TV Documentary series and income from syndication will be granted to the Help for Heroes Flying for Freedom project.
This is a very different challenge from all previous expeditions by wounded servicemen and women. Our team is attempting a series of flying challenges and world firsts, that have never been tried or attempted before by the able bodied.
We hope you can get involved and help us in some way.
Your donation helps those learning to fly with us, but also provides great inspiration. Donating through this page is simple, quick and secure. It is the most efficient way to give – so every donation goes further – and if you are a UK taxpayer and give Gift Aid consent you will boost your donation.
Flying is a great adventure, providing a freedom from disability: www.fly2pole.com
Thank you for your support.
About Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses whilst serving our country. This is provided through grants to individuals, other Service charities, capital build projects and our four Recovery Centres across the UK, in Catterick, Colchester, Tidworth and Plymouth. These will offer support for life. The money raised by the hugely generous public has been used to support our wounded, but there is still so much more to do. Soldiers, sailors and airmen who are injured today will still need our support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and we won't let them battle alone.
