Over the past 34 years, FSDP has helped over 400 disabled men and women change their lives, by experiencing the joy of freedom in the air, learning new skills, regaining confidence, and who have “reached for the sky”. 

As scholars we have a range of disabilities and illnesses including, amputation, paraplegia, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and poliomyelitis.  Some of us are born with our condition, some of us have them as the result of an accident or of contracting a disease, or even because we have been a victim of a terrorist bombing. 

Getting a scholarship is a big thing for us; learning to fly will be a huge mental and physical challenge which we know will change our lives – and we really do appreciate the opportunity that has been given to us. 

To show our appreciation, and to celebrate our achievement, we want to generate enough funds to be able to provide a scholarship in 2018 for another disabled person and change their lives too – your help would be really appreciated.
