UK disabled flying charity Aerobility is to host a free to attend hour long, live-streamed event celebrating the Aurora Borealis.
Broadcast on 13 March at 18:00 via armchairaurora.com Armchair Aurora brings together spectacular Aurora footage, interviews and Q&A with scientists, there will be insights on polar aviation and the workings of the Aurora, all beamed to a global audience.
“This event is just one example of how we continue to support the disabled community and continue to inspire ability through aviation during lockdown, while aircraft are grounded. If I were to describe what it will be like, I would say, think ‘Spring Watch meets the Sky at Night’, exclaimed Aerobility CEO, Mike Miller-Smith.
To round off the evening, the event will conclude with a ‘Sounds of Space’ music extravaganza, delivering 30 minutes of tranquillity and beauty to viewers, with aurora footage accompanied by appropriately ambient music.
Mike Miller-Smith said: “Building on our annual fundraising event ‘Aurora’ which sees Aerobility fly to the Northern-most part of the UK, Armchair Aurora is part of our response to the impact of Covid-19.
Our hope is that the aviation industry, which has been fantastic in its support of disabled flying, along with others, will find a way to step forward again to sponsor and support the event, so that we can continue to provide disabled flying when we come out of lockdown. We will also encourage donations during the event, whilst anyone wishing to support us now can do so via www.aerobility.com/donate”
