QEF's Tryb4uFly service provides information and advice for children and adults with disabilities who are thinking about travelling by air. We provide individual cabin assessments, free information about flying with a disability and hire equipment to help make your journey easier.
Cabin assessments are for people with disabilities who have either booked a flight or are considering flying. They are tailored to each individual and take place in a replica aircraft cabin. They are conducted by a trained occupational therapist who will guide you through boarding the aircraft, the wheelchair transfer options and support systems available on the aircraft. This enables you to get the real experience of what it is like to move down the aisle and transfer to your seat. Assessments are currently available at three locations across England.
Equipment can be hired directly from Tryb4uFly for the duration of your flight.
We also provide free information on travelling by air with a disability, helping you to plan ahead and increase your confidence.
