From an early age Paul has always loved aviation and would have loved a career in the RAF. Unfortunately he was born with a dislocated hip and despite having 22 operations he had his left leg amputated in 2016. He tries not to let the amputation get him down but it is not always easy especially as he is still waiting for his prosthetic leg.
Living near a US Airforce base, he pursued his love of aviation by taking photos of the aircraft rather than dreaming of flying them until he heard about Flying Scholarships for Disabled People. He always had a lifelong dream of being free in the skies where there is equality and no negativity.
“I just can’t put into words how my scholarship will change my life. I want to be a good role model for my children and gain back the confidence I once had”
