DBpixelhouse are honoured to be supporting the aviation charity, Aerobility at Farnborough Air Show 2018, by providing Wi-Fi for their space at the Farnborough.

Aerobility CEO Mike Miller-Smith explained: “Aerobility provides an opportunity for disabled people to fly planes. We have a fleet of five specially adapted aircraft which we fly from Blackbushe near Camberley as well as various airstrips around the UK, offering flying lessons, experience and advice for disabled people who are passionate about flying.”

2018 is Aerobility’s 25th anniversary, and to mark the occasion, Mike and his team are working with a group of volunteers to build an aircraft at Farnborough: “We saw the anniversary as a great opportunity to embark on the extraordinary project of building a plane at the Air Show. We’re starting from scratch and by the end of the last day will have something which resembles a finished Zenair CH750 aeroplane. Everybody who visits us will have the opportunity to contribute, even if it’s just popping a few rivets in. There will still be a bit of work to finish after the air show closes, but we’ll be back at Farnborough 2020 where the aircraft will take to the skies. It’s remarkable that hundreds of people will be able to watch it fly and think ‘I played my part in building that’.”

Aerobility were supported by a number of great companies in our industry, including De Boer structures, RME Power, the Blades Aerobatic team and Rolls Royce. DBpixelhouse supplied a complimentary Wi-Fi service.

David Bulley, DBpixelhouse CEO said: “It’s a real honour to support Aerobility at Farnborough, the work they do is completely amazing, and we’re thrilled to be able to help them out. We wish Aerobility a very successful Farnborough and look forward to seeing the plane take off in 2020!”

Mike concluded: “We’ve received amazing support from everyone in the events and aerospace industry. The Wi-Fi from DBpixelhouse has been really important because it enabled us to literally move our office to Farnborough, so we could build the aircraft and run the charity at the same time. The response we’ve had from everyone who’s visited us has been fantastic, Farnborough is an excellent place for us to do this, there’s been a real community spirit and lots of support.”
