Celebrating the end of wartime restrictions on flying and the rebirth of British Aviation, the Flying High Ball will take you on a journey through the 1940s to present day. As you sip bubbles under the wings of the Wellington ‘R for Robert’, you will be serenaded by our 1940’s vocalist. You will then enjoy a three course meal with free flowing wine and dance the night away with songs from the 1940s through to modern day music!
Dress code: Black Tie, Suits, uniform or 1940s' glamour
QEF hopes you will purchase your ticket, stow your luggage in the overhead locker, fasten your seat belt and join us as we prepare for the take-off of QEF’s ‘Flying High Ball’.
The difference your support will make:
Our Flying High ball will be raising funds to support our work in accessible aviation; helping QEF to support more people with disabilities and provide the assessments and information they need to fly with confidence.
QEF’s Accessible Aviation team support people of all ages who require additional information and help to travel by air - from families looking to fly with disabled children, often for the first time, to adults who want to visit relatives abroad or travel for work. There are many reasons why people want to travel by air, but disabled people face additional challenges that others do not. Through our unique services and free information, QEF aims to provide practical support to help people overcome these challenges.
Across the UK we offer personalised Tryb4uFly cabin assessments, run public events and provide free information for people interested in flying with a disability. All of these provide practical steps that can improve flight experiences and give people the confidence they need to travel by air. We also work closely with national aviation authorities, airports, airlines and service providers, as well as campaigners and other charities to help improve the accessibility of air travel.
