Hall A7

Mike Miller-Smith MBE, CEO Aerobility introduces the first enhanced Grob G109B ‘Able’ on show for first time in Europe. Join Mike Miller Smith MBE, Aerobility and first customer David Pilkington for a media briefing and showcase of the aircraft.

Aerobility, the UK’s leading disabled flying charity, is celebrating the arrival of its new aircraft type, the Grob G109B Able. This is its first public appearance in Europe. Aerobility’s Project Able is a collaboration with Germany’s Grob Aircraft SE, backed by the UK Government, which centres on a full refurbishment, new engine, propeller and avionics enhancement of former RAF Air Cadet Vigilant Grob G109 motorgliders.  A number will fly with Aerobility, adapted for disabled fliers and the remaining aircraft are being marketed and sold by the charity to support the project and also enable more disabled people to fly.
