At Sunbury Village WI we were delighted to invite John Tye a British Airways Pilot to our March meeting. More importantly though John flew Concorde ! John gave a passionate talk, sharing his journey to becoming a pilot and beyond of the truly iconic Concorde. John shared a photo he took at age 11 when Concorde flew for the first time, little did he know he would one day be at the controls.
John gives him time to support the Charity Dreamflight, a UK charity that takes children with a serious illness or disability on their holiday of a lifetime to Orlando. The experience can be life-changing and gives young people an opportunity to do something that medicine can't: discover independence, confidence and a new outlook.
