Flexwing Microlight - PPL Training
Late 2019 will see the start of another amazing challenge being taken on by Claire. She will begin lessons in a Flexwing Microlight with the aim of obtaining her Private Pilots Licence (PPL).
A microlight has been adapted to make it possible for Claire to (hopefully!) control the plane with just her hands and this will be the beginning of a long journey with many hours of flying time and studying to eventually gain her PPL ... and then no doubt she will put her new skills to good use and find a challenge that will enable her to raise more funds for her favourite charities.
On Friday 28th January 2022 Claire passed her final exam to become a fully qualified pilot.
Claire is now offering YOU the chance to join her in a flight over the Melton Mowbray area during the Summer of 2022.
This will include a film of your flight and it may be possible to go over your house if you live locally.
Purchase as many raffle tickets you would like at £1 each to enter the draw. All proceeds to the Great Dalby Primary School
The draw was made on 6th May and the 'lucky' winners were Mary Sisson and Kate Van Dorne ... over £500 was raised so many thanks to all who entered.
Claire has already turned this new challenge into a fundraising opportunity by offering both businesses and individuals the chance to have their badge on her flying suit with just a £100 donation to the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation.

Many thanks to all those who have already supported Claire:
