A challenging & inspiring global adventure changing perceptions of disability and committed to daring, sharing, inspiring, and exploring.
Test of the Gopros positions in order to share with you the amazing sceneries that we will fly over from November for 10 months. Have a look how Mike Lomberg controls with his right hand the rudders without the use of his legs for the takeoff and landing.
Organized every year from 2007 to 2009 and every two years since 2011, The next edition of Handiflight will take place in 2018. But this time, instead of inviting you to Gruyère, we will set off in two light airplanes on a 9-months journey to meet other pilots around the world. These two CTLS aircraft, will be flown by Guillaume (Féral) and Paolo (Poccobelli). They will be alone on board to fly to Australia and then to cross the Pacific and the Atlantic. We offer you the opportunity of flying these airplanes for several periods of two weeks with Paolo or Guillaume as safety pilots in the following areas : Australia (March), New Zealand (April), South America (July) and North America (August).
The requirements are to have a PPL(A) or a Sport Pilot Licence and speak English or/and French. All the aeronautical expenses (airplanes, fuel, taxes, etc.) are paid by Handiflight, but you will have to pay for food, accommodation and airline tickets to join us (we hope to get discounted tickets).
These are not local but point-to-point flights, which can sometimes be long. As you can imagine, it will be impossible to satisfy the wishes of all. I will be solely responsible for the difficult choices that I will have to make. Thank you for your understanding.
If you are interested and you think you fulfil the conditions, please contact me as soon as possible.
On this map you can find the airfields where powered aircraft and gliders with hand-controls are available.
