WALKING ON AIR
Soar like birds… Disability gliding at its best!
“If you are disabled and really want wings, come and try an Air Experience flight in our two seat dual hand controlled training glider at Portmoak Airfield, near Kinross in Fife, Scotland some 25 miles from Edinburgh.
We operate from the Scottish Gliding Union, which is the largest gliding club in Scotland and the third largest in the UK. The local scenery is superb, with marvellous views from the air of local Loch Leven and the Lomond hills.”

‘We have a unique mission, to give people of mixed abilities and circumstances the freedom to explore their ability, potential and place in the world through inclusive adventures at sea.
In a wild, unpredictable and challenging environment, people discover new personal depths. That is true for everyone, because the sea does not discriminate. On our ships people engage in a continuous, residential experience and live in close quarters. They are often disconnected from elements of modern life. That means that people are more present in the moment and their learning experience is accelerated. We give everyone responsibilities that have real consequences. People learn that risky activities can be safe when managed responsibly. Our tall ships are uniquely accessible and are crewed by a diverse community of mixed abilities, circumstances and ages. On JST voyages social, demographic and physical barriers are broken down and disability and disadvantage fade into the background.’
