Every time I get out of an aeroplane I have a smile on my face. Sharing that love of flying with people who really need a boost is such a brilliant idea . Mike Ling

My life revolves around aviation, it's amazing and a real privilege to share it with people who need it and those who want to be a part of it in the future.

We are an incredibly small team here at fly2help but our reach is immense and we couldn't do what we do without the support of our amazing volunteers.
We are lucky to be surrounded by such passionate and creative people who allow us to fulfill our mission to open the doors on the exciting world of aviation to everyone.
Being a female and coming from a BAME background, both largely underrepresented categories within aviation, I hope to work towards making aviation accessible for all. The charity has several fun-packed activities in partnership with schools across England, from answering general questions about becoming an airline pilot, engineer, air traffic controller to hands-on events involving airport operations.
As a fly2help volunteer I hope to spark a sense of excitement in relation to a career within aviation amongst the next generation.
