Teaching someone to fly is always a challenge. Now imagine that the person you are teaching is disabled.
It happens every day, thanks to Able Flight, a non-profit organization founded in 2006 by Charles Stites, a pilot who believes that the life-changing experience of learning to fly is best shared, which is why he created an organization to award scholarships to help people with disabilities pursue flight training.
Many years ago, when I was working as a television news reporter, I spent a day in a wheelchair so that I could get an idea of what it was like to be disabled for a story on the American With Disabilities Act. I remember how challenging it was to use a water fountain, get in and out of a car or an elevator, even maneuver in an office. These were all things I did everyday without thinking. I wondered if I would have a similar experience if I flew the Sky Arrow 600 with hand controls.
The IMC Clubs has appointed Victoria Kuo, the chief flight instructor of New Horizon Aviation, to be the Rhode Island Chapter President.
