About us

Welcome to Wheelies with Wings!  

Wheelies with Wings is a registered charity, non-profit and public company offering training programs for wheelchair users to learn to fly airplanes.  

Our purpose is to provide opportunities for people living with physical disability to participate in flying experiences.  

Our service aims to enable greater independence, freedom and goal achievement as well as capacity building skills development, and greater participation in recreation, leisure and travel.

Wheelies With Wings operates under the generosity of donated time, skills and dedication of a volunteer Board.
