TThe Eagle Hoist has been available and is bookable when you book your plane ticket for passengers travelling out of London Heathrow, Gatwick, and Manchester.
The great news is that those travelling from Birmingham airport, now have the same hoist. This lifts a person out of their wheelchair and onto a plane seat whilst maintaining their dignity always, so there is no need for a person to manually handled. This is also much better for the ground crew as the machine takes the weight of the passenger. Obviously, this depends on the size of the aircraft, as not all aircraft are currently suitable.
This machine is found in most of the large airports in Australia and the USA, you do need to be mindful that not all the airports where you are landing, will have an Eagle Hoist.
The important message is that you are aware of this information if you know anyone that you feel may benefit from it, then please share this information, as this will encourage more people to ask the more they see the Hoist in operation.
I am happy to help assist with this part of the journey with anyone who books their travel with me so that I can do all the co ordinating between the aircraft and the ground crew, to ensure you have an enjoyable experience getting on or off the aircrafts coming into these airports.
