Bruce Dickinson co-pilot opportunity, Monday 8th October 2012!

Britain’s brightest flying charity, teaching the disabled to fly, has a fundraising project to take on the World!

Bruce is taking part in Aerobility’s Global Flight Simulator Challenge…

You can be Bruce Dickinson’s right hand man!

To really help Aerobility make the most of this, Bruce is looking for a Wing Man to share his flight - an exclusive co-pilot to share the cockpit - a ‘once only’ opportunity, for sale here on eBay!

Objective of the GFSC is to raise funds for a disabled-adapted flight simulator. Invaluable for disabled student pilots, it allows people with weak, missing or prosthetic limbs to get used to the aircraft without the expense of actual flight - meaning big savings for each disabled student. It is also used for training during unsuitable weather, and by those few whose challenging conditions preclude genuine flight. It’s a fabulous piece of kit, and compellingly realistic.

The idea behind the challenge is to make the simulator ‘pay for itself’ through a sponsored circumnavigation, with stops at ‘real’ destinations over a 22,000 mile course which, would be achievable in one of Aerobility’s real training aircraft.  

Bruce is involved as one of the 100 pilots ‘flying’ a leg of our global journey, which will take ten days beginning on 5th October 2012, at Aerobility’s Blackbushe Airport, Camberley UK headquarters building.

The Global Flight Simulator Challenge website has all the details. Learn more about Aerobility at

The small print…

Opportunity includes: ‘Cockpit time’ only – for a leg of our world record attempt ‘one-to-one’ in our Aerobility’s PA28 simulator cockpit. Our simulator is based around the real fuselage of a Piper Archer, and as it’s the cockpit section of a real aircraft, it has every switch, control and instrument. We also have 180 degree graphics, and overhead projectors which incorporate our special Global Flight Sim Challenge database.


Opportunity does not include: Travel expenses to and from Aerobility’s Blackbushe Airport, GU17 9LQ UK Headquarters (the venue for the GFSC event), accommodation expenses or any allowance for meals or refreshments. Aerobility warrants that this offer is made in good faith, and is accurate at the time of listing. Should he withdraw from the GFSC event after the eBay listing has closed, any monies paid will be refunded.

No claim for consequential loss of any sort, including for flights, meals or accommodation will be considered.

Bidding for this opportunity signifies acceptance of these binding conditions.
