Rob Bryan became a Tetraplegic after a fall in 1999. After discovering The APT Charitable Trust he has now gained his National Private Pilots Licence for Microlights. Rob sent us this video of his first solo, in the hope it would inspire others.

Jonathan Rudge has been a Tetraplegic since a near fatal car crash in the 1980's. Needing live in helpers for daily life, and with only limited arm and hand movement Jonathan still manages to fly solo and enjoy the freedom of the air which flying with APT gives.
