Adrian’s first memory of wanting to fly was as a five year old dressed up as Superman, jumping off his bunk bed. Once old enough, he joined the RAF Regiment where Adrian was able to fly in military aircraft and travel the world. Sadly, whilst on a mortar course, he was involved in a serious accident in his Landrover, severing his spinal cord and leaving him to face life in a wheelchair.
Adrian now works as a volunteer for DIAL, a charity providing support, information and advice to disabled people and their families, and is now looking for a new challenge in his life.
“I have loved every minute flying and thank you for awarding me this scholarship. I have found friends for life in my training partner Peter Lau and my flying instructor John Griffin. ”
