In partnership with the UK Civil Aviation Authority QEF (Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People) have produced a film that gives wheelchair users, especially powered wheelchair users, information and insights about travelling by air and the support available. With unique access to a real life flight, follow Jon and his Dad through every aspect of their journey, highlighting what’s involved and including useful links to more information you may need.
You can watch the film in different ways, either from start to finish so that you can see everything involved, or in specific segments that focus just on the information you need most. The film is subtitled throughout.
