Fly to new heights

Fly to new heights

Last time I talked about different ways you can get around while on vacation. We talked about public transit and renting a car, but we didn’t discuss a different means of transit…. aviation!

“Although IWA began in 1972 as just a monthly “fly to lunch” group of four paraplegic aviators from the Southern California area, it has developed into a worldwide group of disabled and able bodied (A/B) pilots interested in aviation and flying. Members have many different disabilities including paraplegia, quadriplegia, amputee, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, polio and other problems. Through their hard work and persistence and with the help of a tolerant FAA medical system, hundreds have been given the  opportunity to fly, many to resume flying careers and  others to fly for the first time. Over the past 25 years  several hundred IWA members have flown thousands  of hours all over the world and in many different types  of aircraft using hand controls or whatever was  necessary to operate the aircraft as pilot in command”

Happy flying!
