Oaklands Global Charity of the Year

22nd August 2018

Oaklands Global is proud to announce our chosen charity for 2018 is Fly2help: https://www.fly2help.org/

Fly2help uses the power of aviation to change lives

This wonderful charity was founded in 2006 by pilot Phill O’Dell and built up by a group of passionate aviators who wanted to share the excitement that surrounds flying with people who have not, or think they could not, experience it for themselves.

Fly2help offers two charitable programmes:

Air Smiles Days are bespoke experience days for children and adults living with profound disability, life-limiting conditions, severe illness, bereavement and isolation. Built around a flight in a light aircraft, the days include a variety of different activities that enables our beneficiaries to leave their worries on the ground and enjoy a memorable day with their loved ones.

Aim High is our unique Educational Programme that helps young people learn about the pathway into a career in aviation whilst gaining confidence and a belief in themselves and their future. Through a series of visits to Aviation Companies, talks by industry professionals and hands on experience through trial flights, navigation exercises and ground operations, students learn more about the breadth of career opportunities in the Aviation industry.

Through sponsored fundraising events, office challenges and donations, Oaklands Global looks forward to raising much needed funds to help support Fly2help.
