Queen Elizabeth Foundation Accessible Aviation
Graham Race is a pioneer in the field of access to commercial flight for disabled people, having designed the award-winning MERU TravelChair and setting up QEF’s Accessible Aviation and Tryb4uFly.
Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation (QEF) is a UK national charity that provides services for disabled people. QEF Accessible Aviation provides information, practical demonstration and training to support disabled people who
are considering flying. It has three mock aircraft cabins in Surrey, Birmingham and Leeds where disabled people can try equipment and discuss their flight. Working with the UK Civil Aviation Authority and many airports and
airlines we are also offering training to healthcare professionals throughout the UK.
Having a child with a disability has increased Graham’s desire to see the availability of life changing products and services for disabled people and families and is passionate about the role that aviation can play to inspire
independence and achieve life goals.
