Duo lands in UAE as part of global mission to raise awareness about disability

Dubai: Two paraplegic pilots on wheelchairs have created history in UAE airspace by landing in Dubai World Central as part of a global Handi-flight mission to raise awareness about disability.

Speaking to Gulf News, which was given exclusive access to the airside to witness the touchdown, the pilots — Mike Lomberg and Guillaume Feral — said Dubai was their sixth stopover in a 40-country tour covering 80,000 kilometres to raise funds for Humanity & Inclusion, an international NGO that is out to combat prejudice and exclusion.
