Same wings for all
Antoine, a young active worker and sports enthusiast had his motorcycle accident at 20. It was on 2004 and he is in a wheelchair since then. Being a paralytic at such age is an ordeal, requiring a lot of optimism and will to overcome.
Today Antoine is a volunteer flight instructor in a gliding flying club near Paris. He's a passionate pilot who passes not only his knowledge but his dynamism and his optimism to his students.
The transition between those two events is a fabulous story. There were impediments and opportunities for discouragement, but at the end Antoine succeeded to realise a childhood dream : to fly.
But what is important today is to take advantage of Antoine's experience, and help others in a similar situation so they can enjoy their life again, and realize that the accident is not an end but only a new beginning.
