Instructor Robert Gillie



Cheryl prepares for take off
I have fulfilled a dream, quite literally, one carried since an early age, to fly.
I have learned greatly from the others that things I had even thought impossible are more than possible.
I will continue to fly and will now even return to driving because of this activity and the confidence I gained and held with my instructor.


Julie's camera shy
This course has benefited me to now continue with further lessons to achieve a pilot's licence.


Lisa, ready to fly
It has (the course) boosted my confidence. I thought that I could never achieve flying a plane,
but with thanks to a great instructor and Wheelies with Wings, I have achieved.
I am now looking for my next challenge

Instructor Jason Hall

Phil Sleep - Jason Hall (instructor) - Bruno de Simone - Tim Jones

Tim Bruno Suzi Duncan and Phil meet the RAAF Roulettes at Temora Aviation Museum NSW.
The Roulettes performed their aerial spectacular on behalf of Wheelies with Wings
and played a significant part in helping to raise around $30,000 on the day.

Suzi Duncan (initiator of Wheelies) flew from Victoria to open the presentation ceremony at Temora in May. Suzi addresses the two thousand strong crowd who came to Temora to see the air show.

Suzi (left) is pictured with Bruno, Tim and Phil in the front row. In the back row are Chief of Air Force Air Marshall Angus Houston, Rear Admiral Ian Richards (WwW) and David Lowy Patron of WwW. Chief of Air Force Houston came to Temora to present the successful students their graduation certificates.



The Wheelies with Wings flying wheelchair is used to help raise funds for future scholarships.
It is pictured here with members of the Rotary Club of Temora who spent the day selling raffle tickets to the large crowd of onlookers.
The prize, kindly donated by QANTAS was an hour flight in their 747 Simulator at the QANTAS base Mascot.

The course is designed to teach people who are
normally confined to wheelchairs to fly, and thereby
gain the confidence to live life more fully, and achieve
their potential. I suffered a spinal cord injury in a
motorcycling accident two years ago, and personally
the course has meant that I have regained some of the
confidence I lost from this experience.
The course also provided the opportunity to meet
people of similar background, experience and interests,
and I have formed lasting friendships with my fellow
course participants, Adam Gallagher and Mal Pollard,
and our instructor James Perham.
A real highlight of the course for me was being judged
only on the basis of my performance, my landings and
the student like quality of my radio calls.
Last but not least, I haven’t had this much FUN in
years. I know I also speak on behalf of Adam and Mal
when I say this.
So thank you again.
Yours sincerely,
Anne-Marie Howarth

“We can fly!”


I just want to say Thank You to everyone concerned with this project. My brother Gregg Stebbings has just come back from Wheelies with Wings and it has had a huge impact on him. He was overwhelmed with the experience and it has been wonderful for him. Life has been a bit difficult for him over the last few years. Thank You so much for providing this opportunity and please thank your sponsors for such a generous gift. Chris Harris.


I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity of flying again. The fortnight I spent in Temora was the best time I have had for a long time. The course was quite an experience and has me trying to figure a way to keep on flying. I think I’ll try micro light Aircraft in the future. I would like to express much gratitude for the whole experience.

Regards

Gregg Stebbings

This experience has been the biggest booster in my adult life (not the slightest exaggeration) and I now intend to let the experience shine as a beacon for future life experiences. I feel that I have made lifelong friends with people in Temora and have already received invites from a few of the characters I met whilst in town.  For me Temora is a town I will always speak of with fondness. In regard to lifelong friends, Geez what can I say about the other participants Brian and Grant – I now consider are part of my family (don’t mean to be too sentimental) There are so many things I could keep writing about in regards to my participation in the Wheelies with Wings program but I wouldn’t want to ramble.

No words can express my thanks to you for telling me about the Wheelies opportunity - I had an absolutely AWESOME week ( as I am sure the ladies did too ) and am really just so glad that I accepted the chance to do something that I never contemplated I would do. Thank-you for your advice and support - it is so appreciated. David Bell
