The World Record attempt - update
On Friday 23 November 2018, Heathrow hosted a Guinness World Records® official attempt in support of Aerobility’s mission to help people with disabilities participate in aviation. The airport’s ‘Wheels4Wings’ event saw a team of 98 people in wheelchairs pull a 127.6 tonne 787-9 Boeing Dreamliner over 100 metres, beating the previous record of 67 tonnes held by a Belgian team set in 2011.
Over £21,000 was raised from this event which will help Aerobility continue to enable people of all disabilities to participate in aviation. Their programmes include a wide range of services from ground-based activities all the way through to supporting flyers as they achieve their Private Pilot Licenses.
This event would not have been possible without the generous support of many organisations and individuals. Our sincere thanks go to key partners:
...and to our wonderful supporters who gave their time, energy and resources:
