The William Merritt Disabled Living Centre is now offering aircraft passenger assessments at their Mobility Centre in Leeds. Equipped with two rows of aircraft seats kindly provided by British Airways, the mock cabin has already been used by disabled people considering planning a flight.
To support their Paralympics coverage the Channel 4 News has been carrying a piece entitled No Go Britain, which looked at the accessibility of public transport, both on the ground and in the air.
On Tuesday 4 September the 5 minute feature on the 7 o’Clock News focused on disabled peoples negative experiences of flying, but also featured our TravelChair test pilot Azaria using the TravelChair at the QEF Try b4u Fly test rig, which we hope will greatly improve disabled children’s experience of flying. You can read more about Azaria’s test flight in the TravelChair here
The feature was also linked to an article called ‘No Fly Britain: are disabled passengers being grounded which you can read here
Now the Tryb4uFly assessment service is underway we are offering a hire service for our support seating systems.
So if the airline that you are flying with do not have the support seating you need then you can both hire and buy the items from QEF Mobility Services.
The price you pay to hire the items is calculated at a daily rate plus an initial administration charge. Currently you can only use these items on UK registered airlines.
You will always need to give the airline a minimum of 48 hours notice if you wish to bring equipment on board. It is best to organise this when first making the flight booking.
Please contact QEF Mobility Services to book an assessment or hire equipment on 0208 770 1151 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org
