Flight-safety leader Aerobytes backs British flying charity Aerobility

Surrey-based flight safety company Aerobytes has agreed a substantial financial sponsorship package for Aerobility, a British flying charity for disabled flyers.

The financial support from Aerobytes will enable Aerobility to underwrite its core operational costs and spend more of its money on opening the skies to everyone, regardless of their challenges.

Aerobility celebrates its 30th birthday this year and provides opportunities for people of all ages with a wide range of disabilities to take to the skies and even learn how to fly, either airborne in an aircraft cockpit, or virtually from their home.

Aerobytes is a well-established market-leader in the field of Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) and was previously the main charitable supporter of Vulcan XH558 and sponsor of both The Blades Aerobatic Team and The Blades Air-Race Team.

Emma said: “Aerobility is an amazing charity. I don’t know anyone that has ever been introduced to Aerobility and what it does and has not been in awe at its ability to transform lives.

“Mike and the team provide individuals with disabilities, who would otherwise be largely isolated, with a caring community of people who share their love of aviation.”

Eddie Forrester, Managing Director of Aerobytes added: “Our support provides Aerobility with a long overdue and stable platform to build upon.

“This will enable Aerobility to deliver longer-term and sustainable plans to make aviation inclusive to all.”

“And of course, it is also an opportunity for us – through our sponsorship – to improve awareness of our brand to a diverse cross-section of the aviation community.

“I have been a part of the aviation industry for more than 20 years, and I have yet to meet anyone notable who is not aware of Aerobility and its ethos.

“Aerobility engenders respect and admiration, and we are proud to associate the Aerobytes brand with this unique flying charity.”

Mike Miller-Smith, CEO of Aerobility, which operates virtually UK-wide and flies from Blackbushe Airport in Hampshire and Tatenhill Airfield in Staffordshire, said: “Eddie and Emma Forrester have been private supporters of Aerobility for many years.

“We are delighted that they have stepped in as principal sponsors of Aerobility and as a result of that agreement we now proudly carry the Aerobytes logo on our aircraft, vehicles, website and building signage.

“This financial support for us guarantees a high quality of service provision for disabled people. The underwriting of our core costs means we can concentrate on what is important, which is opening the skies to everyone.”
