"AVIACIÓ ADAPTADA 2018"
Saturday October 20th, in Igualada-Òdena Aerodrome, had place the FIRST JOURNEY OF "AVIACIÓ ADAPTADA" (Adapted Aviation).
"Aviació Adaptada" is an initiative of “Vols per a tothom”, “Las Sillas Voladoras” and “Temyque”, with the colaboration of "Federació Aèria Catalana", "Aeroports de Catalunya" and Igualada and Òdena town halls, to introduce to the aviation world people with disabilities. Also took part many pilots, volunteers, entities, companies and aeroclubs, between them, the "Club de Vol a Vela Igualada-Òdena" (Igualada-Òdena Gliding Club).
This year they flew almost 100 people with disability, between them, almost 20 in glider. In this event, our club has contributed with part of the fleet: 2 tow planes and 3 double seater gliders. We could also count on an ASK21 adapted with manual control, property of “Las Sillas Voladoras”.
Thanks to this event, we signed a colaboration contract with “Las Sillas Voladoras” to share human and material resources.
Congratulations and thank you to allthe volunteers, pilots, spotters and organization staff for this big success.
