What the professionals have said about us

"May I take this opportunity to extend my appreciation and support to APT in helping bring quality of life to patients with disability.

"Patients with spinal injury usually end up with severe disability and it calls for a great degree of enthusiasm and courage to bring back meaning to their lives. Whatever help we can give them in improving their quality of life is absolutely essential and paramount to their physical and psycho-emotional well being. I am sure patients from our centre and from others throughout the United Kingdom would benefit in participating in disabled flying."

"The work that APT is involved in is extremely important for disabled people. Their involvement with activities such as aviation enables the disabled individual to experience temporary freedom from their wheelchair and disability, and this provides great psychological benefit and a feeling of general well-being and this social interaction is extremely important in itself."

The Duke of Cornwall Spinal Treatment Centre
Salisbury Health Care NHS Trust

"Over the years, we have had a number of patients who have learned to fly and I have absolutely no doubt that such activities help patients rebuild their lives, both physically and psychologically. I am happy to endorse the work of APT and hope they go from strength to strength."

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

"I have examined quite a few of the disabled people who hope to be able to become private pilots, and have been struck by the joy they feel when what they perceive as a totally closed recreation becomes one they could aspire to, a fact not lost on their carers and families who often comment on the change for the better in the attitude of the disabled after they have taken up flying."

Dr. Dewi R Morgan

"Equal access to activities and leisure pursuits is extremely important for people with physical disabilities in general; more specifically people I have spoken to that participate in the adapted aircraft flying find it extremely valuable and I have no doubt that it impacts significantly on other aspects of their lives."
