At this year's Farnborough Airshow, Aerobility is showcasing its project called "Building a Dream." The charity, which offers disabled people the chance to fly an airplane, has enlisted a team of disabled people to build a Zenair Ch750 STOL and fly it once it is ready. According to Aerobility, which is based at Blackbushe Airport, a couple of miles north of Farnborough, this will be the first aircraft manufactured in the Farnborough area in 15 years. Other airshow exhibitors such as Boeing, NATS, and Rolls-Royce support Aerobility, which is also celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
