    ROUND BRITAIN 2016: THE FINAL LEG! Flying For Freedom Flying For Freedom

    July 31st, 2016

    The final leg of our journey around Britain 2016. The team arrives back at Kemble, well almost all of us. The weather turns to the worst for the trip so far and the team struggle with low cloud while flying.
    Richard Meredith-Hardy, Mike Oakley and Nathan Forster continue in the pilot seats each with a passenger. They make their way from Ince microlight strip to Cotswold airport at Kemble, through breaks in the cloud.
    The team sum up on what has been a fantastic trip through England, Scotland and just into Wales. They have taken almost 60 Wounded Injured and Sick military personnel/veterans into the air. They have stopped at many airfields around the country and met lots of people on their way.
    They completed the goal they didn’t manage last year of getting from Land’s End to John O’Groats and developed and learned about their own flying abilities in flexwing microlights.
    The Flying for Freedom team have again bonded and increased their team work in the air and also on the ground with a superb team of ground support who put their time aside in the summer to help out putting tents up, sorting fuel, ground communications, changes of plans, cooking, prepping food, organising cinemas, organising WIS to come and visit, washing up, driving many hours, and trying to build the press interest around the group to interest future people to sponsor us.

    Flying for Freedom was originally setup to fly to the South Pole, Antarctica and has since grown further to do far more with Wounded and injured servicemen and women. There is a core team of pilots and also several others who are learning to fly each year through the charity which is link with Help for Heroes and the Endeavour fund. The plan to continue doing more expeditions in Flexwing microlights to build on the teams piloting skills before trying the South Pole trip in the future.
    Check out our website at www.flyingforfreedom.org
    The films have been put together by www.perfectviewproductions.co.uk who have been partnered with Flying for Freedom for four years to this point.
    The director, cameraman and editor is Kirk Watson and for the first stage of this trip Miles Mallinson from Wired Tree Productions joined Kirk to work as in the air or on the ground cameraman each day and also edited some of the earlier trip films.
    The second half of the trip Kirk was joined by Andrew O’Donnell of Beluga Lagoon films to act as cameraman in the air and on the ground which gave some great shots for the last few films from John O’Groats onwards.
    The film team used Gorpos, Lumix GH4, Sony FS7, and Sony NX70. Microphones were Sony shotgun mics, Technica radio mics, Rode radio miss and Rode shotgun mic. The films have all been edited on FCP X with colour grading done in Magic bullet looks.



    HEADING SOUTH

    July 22nd, 2016

    The team head out of Scotland down to Kirkbride Airfield, near Carlisle. Part of the land team head to Aboyne for a film showing so a skeleton crew head south with all the microlights due to bad weather coming into Scotland from the North.
    Flying for Freedom plan to fly around the UK over the next few weeks and take injured and wounded service men and women up in flexwing microlights at several stops to give them the experience ours guys get.

    JOHN O’GROATS: Part 2

    July 20th, 2016

    The team have made it round John O’Groats which means they have completed one of their goals which was to fly from Land’s End to John O’Groats. The main goal of this trip has been to get other wounded and injured veterans into air and along side this is to build on the original Flying for Freedoms teams hours in a flexwing microlight.
    Julian our great Chef puts together a superb Scottish meal for the team and some of the Scottish Aero Club who have given us great hospitality at Perth Airport.
    The team see a window in weather and decide to make the jump for John O’Groats early, so hopefully they can complete the Land’s End to John O’groats in a flexwing microlight.
    Richard Meredith-Hardy probably the worlds most famous microlighterflys with Kat Janes our flight leader. They pass through the cairngorms and over the mountains and sea to return to Perth. Nathan Forster pilots the other aircraft with ken and Mike Oakley pilots the Pulsar Flexwing aircraft with Andrew O’Donnell filming from the air.
