Aerobility’s Global Flight Simulator Guinness World Record Challenge…BUZZ ALDRIN Wing Man opportunity!Britain’s brightest flying charity, Aerobility, teaching the disabled to fly, has a fundraising project to take on the World! Buzz Aldrin is taking part in Aerobility’s Global Flight Simulator Guinness World Record Challenge…You can be Buzz Aldrin’s co-pilot!To really help Aerobility make the most of this, Buzz is looking for a Wing Man to share his flight – an exclusive co-pilot to share the cockpit - a ‘once only’ opportunity, for sale on eBay!
Objective of the GFSC is to raise funds for a disabled-adapted flight simulator. Invaluable for disabled student pilots, it allows people with weak, missing or prosthetic limbs to get used to the aircraft without the expense of actual flight - meaning big savings for each disabled student. It is also used for training during unsuitable weather, and by those few whose challenging conditions preclude genuine flight. It’s a fabulous piece of kit, and compellingly realistic.
The idea behind the challenge is to make the simulator ‘pay for itself’ through a sponsored circumnavigation, with stops at ‘real’ destinations over a 22,000 mile course which, would be achievable in one of Aerobility’s real training aircraft. Buzz is involved as one of the 100 pilots ‘flying’ a leg of our global journey, which will take ten days beginning on 5th October 2012, at Aerobility’s Blackbushe Airport, Camberley, UK headquarters building.
