Wow!!!! Another amazing day with Rob Barsby at aeroSPARX The Gliding Centre for Alex’s second flight lesson… and guess what Alex only took over the controls and did the loop the loop…. so impressed / proud of Alex. Amazing Rob!! Alex is looking forward to more flight lessons soon.

This is a great example of our #BeMoreAlex campaign getting out and about doing amazing things despite living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The Gliding Centre will be bringing Aerobility to the centre very soon meaning those with disabilities will still be able to reach for the stars. We can’t wait to get involved and inspire others to come along too.

We have organised a loop the loop experience in September, if you would like to get involved please email
