Craig and Phil's 2014 befriending activities are daring!



Craig and his befriender Phil share an interest in daring activities. Already this year they have rock-climbed at CRC and taken to the skies with Aerobility.

When asked Craig King said that he "is taking on Tom Cruise at his own game! From rock climbing as in Mission Impossible 2 to flying planes as in Top Gun!" His befriender Phil says that "Craig will take on any challenge and that it's getting more difficult to find something that he does not just take in his stride!" adding "we always both have great fun when we go out".

The Registered charity Aerobility ran a flying day at Cambridge Airport on Wednesday 19th March 2014, offering trial flights and lessons. Craig told us "It was the most amazing feeling in the whole wide world and an experience that I will never forget. It was out of this world!".
