Aaron Morgan was recently interviewed by Freedom in the Air, a not-for-profit community interest organisation specialising in providing flights and training for those with disabilities looking to learn how to pilot an aircraft.
Aaron competed in motocross for nine years until he had an accident in 2006 which left him paralysed. But this didn’t dampen his enthusiasm for sport and, in particular, motorsport. Initially following the accident Aaron took up wheelchair tennis, but his heart was still set on continuing in motorsport and after finding out that he could learn to drive a year earlier than able-bodied people, he started taking lessons.
He passed his driving test first time in May 2007 and two years later he became the youngest ever disabled person to be awarded an MSA National B race license. FITA met up with Aaron again to see how he gets on with flying aeroplanes.
