From birth, Anthony was diagnosed with Phocomelia, a condition that involves malformations of the arms and legs. This resulted in a double above knee amputation, no elbow in his left arm and missing two fingers on his left hand. The amputations affected Anthony’s mobility and he cannot stand for long periods. However, his upper body strength allows him to pull himself upstairs. He represented Great Britain at swimming in 3 Paralympic Games but had to retire due to injury.
“Ever since I was a child I loved planes. I grew up watching Top Gun and wanted nothing more than to be a pilot.
Being given this FSDP opportunity to gain a pilot’s licence would not only be a dream come true but also potentially open up other opportunities. I just need an opportunity to start myself a new chapter in life and I believe you guys can provide me with that”
