Vincent Aviation Training

 Vincent Training 1 Vincent Training 2

In 2013, the MJDF began conducting training workshops for our sponsor Vincent Aviation.

The workshops provide training for pilots, crew, operations and ground staff on how to safely lift and transfer a passenger from their wheelchair, how to safely fold and stow wheelchairs and how to use the Aircraft wheelchair lift to safely transfer a passenger in and out of their aircraft seat.

Vincent Aviation has been an important sponsor for the MJDF since 2008 and provides free of charge travel for MJDF clients with Machado Joseph Disease, as well as discounted travel for carers, along with staff, Board members and volunteers with the MJDF.

MJDF Executive Officer Nadia Lindop said "Vincent Aviation really set the bar on how all Australian airlines, regardless of their size can meet disability standards. We are very proud to be associated with them."
