Air Smiles - Atticus
Atticus died when he was only 4 years old. A few months before, he and his little sister went flying together. Their Air Smiles Memory Book means she can keep her brother with her forever.

"When life gets you down, we pick you up and make you smile again"
The best thing about an Air Smiles day is the personal touch. Whether it's for a child, a family or a group, the fly2help team will tailor the event for you.
As well as a flight, we also arrange activities to make the day extra special.
And of course, Douglas Bear will be there to give you his support.
Air Smiles - Malachi
Because I'm blind, the pilot let me feel the outside of the helicopter before we took off. During the flight the noise, movement and vibrations were incredible.
@ London Biggin Hill Airport
Our young people get few opportunities to envisage a fulfilled future.
You gave our students a glimpse of working life at an airport that was truly inspirational.

Air Smiles - Ted
I flew Spitfires during the War but this was the best flight of my life.
So peaceful and lovely to be up in the air looking down on my home.
