Bardish Chagger Meets Canada’s Paraplegic Flight Instructor

Waterloo MP Bardish Chagger met Carl Hiebert, Canada’s first paraplegic flight instructor on Sunday.

Hiebert is the first person to fly across Canada in an open-cockpit ultralight aircraft and received numerous awards.

On Sunday, Carl Hiebert launched his 7th book – A Birds Eye View.

“Congrats @Carlhiebert, Deb & all supporters. Thanks for letting us soar above the skies!” the MP tweeted.

Confined to a wheelchair since 1981, Carl Hiebert astounded the world by flying his open cockpit ultra-light aircraft 5,000 miles across Canada.

When he landed at Expo ’86 in Vancouver, he achieved what many people said was impossible, by transforming an agonizing obstacle into an inspirational achievement.
