Learning to fly with a broken wing

Medicine on the Move does some things in a very different way.  One of those ways is 'dropping-in' health education to communities - by air.  One young person who would probably not be disabled today if only suitable health education and awareness had been around when she was three years old, is Lydia Wetsi (read her story here).

Lydia, however, has literally risen above her disability and is now training as a pilot.engineer - even with the challenges of her disabled arm.  Here, you can see her practising circuits, that is take-off, climb, cruise, descent, land and repeat, and repeat, and repeat until tired!

As her instructor, under the AvTech programme, I am proud to be a part of the sustainable change that Medicine on the Move has instigated.  Changing lives, one flight at a time, in more ways than we can possibly imagine...
