Charlie attends the Aerobility Aviator’s Ball

December 1, 2023

Lower Sixth pupil, Charlie, recently attended the Aerobility Aviator’s Ball at the Hilton Heathrow hotel. Charlie attended as a member of Aerobility, Britain’s foremost flying charity for the disabled, whereby £130,000 was raised for the charity on the night.

The Red Arrows were guests of honour (as shown in the photo of Charlie and Red 1, Squadron Leader Jon Bond) who she met over two years ago. The ball is only one of the many charity events that Aerobility are part of, including Ace, an air show at Biggin Hill, and Farnborough air show. She spoke about how “the people [she] met were what made it” and that she has made so many new connections through attending the ball in the past three years.

Aerobility is a charity that supports disabled pilots, and Charlie has been flying with them for three years, and after a successful solo flight a few weeks ago, enjoyed the food and company that the ball provided.
