Sue Austin Tries To Create Flying Wheelchair

December 13, 2017

In 2012 Sue Austin was commissioned to perform an underwater ballet in her specially adapted wheelchair for a London Cultural Olympiad.

Ms Austin, who uses a wheelchair, now wants to see if she can create a flying wheelchair.

The BBC Travel Show met her to find out how her flight training was going.

    I used to paraglide (hopefully will do again sometime).

    Some of the guys (running a paragliding school) used to do wheelchair training too… Until the Lottery funding for it was cut (only for Olympic sports now apparently :/)
