Twenty-five years ago, keen mountaineer Kevin suffered a serious accident whilst climbing and was left facing his future mobility dependent on a wheelchair. He had always been interested in aviation and long before his accident had been inspired by Sir Douglas Bader’s story.
Redundancy and a debilitating shoulder injury left Kevin feeling very low. Hearing about FSDP reminded him of the exhilarating trial flying lesson he had enjoyed a few years ago, so this scholarship couldn’t have happened at a more opportune time in his life.
“The scholarship was a great experience for me and one that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I am grateful for the opportunity and would like to give thanks to all those who made it possible”
