l.Tim became the first qualified disabled balloon pilot in Europe, when he passed his General Flight Test in balloons in January 2014. A former RAF Pilot, Tim was left as a paraplegic after an engine failure whilst hovering too low to eject. He set his heart on becoming a pilot again and he became the first paraplegic in the world to gain an Airline Transport Pilots Licence. He then decided that he wanted to help other disabled people take to the skies and, with a number of other disabled pilots, formed the British Disabled Flying Club (BDFC), which later became the charity Aerobility.
